Joe Capo X Kidrobot = ssshhh it's a secret

This is top secret - Presto Artist Joe Capobianco has hooked up with the brilliant people over at Kidrobot for a spring toy release. Joe has created an exclusive Capo girl pin-up that has been brought to life in full color three dimensional vinyl. I have seen the prototype and as Joe says "this thing is gonna knock your socks off". He is totally right, it is amazing. I was also lucky enough to be tapped to do the graphic design work for box package. It was a lot of fun. As with all things Kidrobot this is going to be super limited and we are hoping to have some here at Presto for sale, keep your fingers crossed. As I get more details I will spill em.

Three Sixty Five Originals for Sale!!

We have known that Martin was going to sell the original sketches from the new book for a while now, but we had to keep that info under wraps while we were in production on the new book. Now that the book is out we are psyched to be the exclusive agent for the sale of the original art from "Three Sixty Five". All the art is up at the Presto Webstore Martin LaCasse Originals Available Now
The sketches are priced at the amazing price of $65.00 per piece. The originals have that soft grey pencil tone and very subtle details and shading. Most of the sketches are 9" x 12" on a heavy sketch paper. A series of these would look great framed in your studio, or pick up your birthday. A great opportunity to invest in an original that has been published from a seminal tattoo artist.
Also available is a archival print of the slipcase art from Three Sixty Five. This reproduction is remarkable, when we held it up to the original you couldn't tell the difference. Printed on a heavy duty paper this 18" x 24" is a classic. It will also only set you back $10.00  "Three Sixty Five" Print
If all this new product isn't enough we also have a Presto T-shirt. What better way to impress your friends at the club than by rocking a boutique publishing house shirt. Mens and Ladies $8. Presto T

Martin LaCasse's "Three Sixty Five" Is Awesome

The books are finally in. We have come to the greatest part of all book projects, the final product. This book has been years in the making and it has been fun through the whole process. When you read the opening from Martin you can really see what an incredible struggle it is to draw every single day. He was very disciplined and the results are stunning. Follow his journey as he fills a year through 365 drawings, each month a new subject, each day a new challenge.
The book is actually 4 soft cover volumes that feature 3 months worth of drawings in each book. Each set of books comes in this beautiful all over slipcase designed by Martin. The books are packed with very refined sketches, personal notes, and step -by-steps. Each month also features a brand new full color painting created just for "Three Sixty Five".
We are very proud of this new project all the hard work paid off, (we had to scan each drawing three times to achieve the effect we got). This book is a must have reference book for artists, and a great collectible for anyone who enjoys sketch art and tattoo designs. You also will not be able to beat the value -400 pages, 4 books, 1 Slipcase -only $60. It is now stocked and ready to ship at our all new Presto store. Martin LaCasse "Three Sixty Five" Available Now
