“The Python” – For my second Operation Art Strings guitar I wanted to create a design that covered and flowed over the entire instrument body. The imagery of a snake weaving its way over the dense jungle leaves really jumps out via lots of bright colors and fine line work. Creating this artwork was a real labor of love for my fellow veterans that took many hours to complete. I am incredibly proud to be a part of this wonderful initiative through Guitars For Vets and support their important mission!
