Friday Friends Feature: Big Chris

February 10, 2012 Leave a comment

I am all about the Awesome and when I think of Awesome I think Big Chris. Having only gotten to work with this incredible artist for a short time I was still inspired by his talent as an artist and a leader. Big Chris has not only an amazing work ethic but inspires others to rise above any challenge. His latest endeavors are super cool and worth checking out at Big Chris Art.
