My Tribute Was Featured!
So, I sent the Ryan Dunn Tribute I painted a while back to Dickhouse after a call for submissions to be used in an ‘upcoming tribute’ to Ryan. I’ve only just managed to watch the tribute that someone had kindly uploaded to Youtube, because it hasn’t been broadcast here in the UK yet. And if you look closely during the collage of tributes, mine appears in the bottom right corner for approximately one second.
I am so happy for my work to be featured even for such a short amount of time in a programme dedicated to the life of Ryan Dunn
Here’s a link to part 3 of the tribute on Youtube, where my work can be seen at approximately 10:20.
