Our friend Mark Heggie will be guest spotting here at Skull & Sword on July 27th – August 6 2011. He’s a real wizard who graduated valedictorian of his house Gryffindor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. When it comes to personifying objects, making things cute, bright, powerful or whimsical, Heggie will tat upon thee magical things. You can check out his portfolio here. Call the shop at 415.552.4297. for an appointment you mortals.  


This week our albino gorilla friend Steel MSK had the amazing idea of doing a battle royale between cheeseburgers and hotdogs, and Lango thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to unleash the Burger King Diamond. You can check out the whole mural in it’s entirety here. The wall was painted by Steel MSK, Richard Coleman, Pose, Ewok, Rime, Lango, Augor, Jurne, Pursue, Vizie, and Witnes.

No complicated spots.
