Micklethwait Craft Meats Trailer , 2012 5m x 3.2m acrylic on metal trailer
This is Tom. He’s a long-time friend, a native Texan, a fellow former military brat and an extremely talented cook/charcutier/barbecuer. Last October, as Tom was preparing to fulfill his dream of opening is own barbecue location, he asked me if I would be interested in painting on his trailer. Being that I am a great fan of his barbecue and avid supporter of my friends making moves, I jumped at the opportunity to show my support and be associated with such quality product. In November, I went down to Austin and painted his trailer. I didn’t have any preliminary sketches but after a couple of beers with Tom we quickly agreed on what was going to happen. I can’t endorse Micklethwait Craft Meats strongly enough. Austin and the surrounding area has a lot of bbq…some better than others, and MCM is truly one of the greatest. From the various styles of ribs to the brisket…from the pork shoulder to the daily variety of sausages…from the potato salad and cole slaw to the house made pickles and house made sauce (not needed, yet a magnificent embellishment)…it’s all superlative.
