I have to give him credit for getting the very gracious actor and this artist together."

    Robert Duvall liked my rendition of him from the movie, Apocalypse Now. He got a couple prints from my website, signed one and sent it back to me. To say I'm stoked would be an understatement. I will give it to a legit veteran's organization that takes care of the kids of some of our teammates that were killed doing "commando stuff". Thanks Mr. Duvall, that made my year!

He joined the Navy and learned to make a difference that could be seen and felt. There isn’t the credibility gap for Evan that we can point to as we can with other artists who are milking the world for money while positing their art is profound. Any artist can say the correct buzz words but how many can state how their art has a real ‘Hurtlocker’ story woven into it...CONTINUE
