Art by Joby Cummings
Hosted by Daniel Franzese

About Joby Cummings:
Joby Cummings, born in Palm Springs and raised in rural Texas, discovered his mom's art supplies at the age of seven. He studied graphic design in college, but the allure of the tattoo industry attracted him, and he spent the 90s working in a fast-paced, high-volume tattoo shop, with a brief stint in corporate graphic design. His earliest influences were classic lowbrow art and cartoons like Wacky Packages, Ed Roth, and even early Disney animations. His upcoming exhibit at EM & Co, entitled "Spinobyte", expertly blends 'cute' and 'dark' elements, not normally found together, delivering illustrations and works containing a bit of humor and a dose of the bazaar.

Joby has won numerous awards in the tattoo industry and in graphic design. His art has been displayed in various art galleries and venues, most recently at Velvet Grip Family in Los Angeles, and Solsticycle in Echo Park. Many of his original paintings and prints are held in private collections throughout the U.S. and Canada. His art has been featured in many publications, including Tattoo:Savage, International Tattoo, Skin Art, Tattoo Flash, and Inked. His designs have also been featured in multiple clothing lines, such as Christian Audigier, Scanty Pajamas, Zissou & Spike, BCBG, Vertigo, Joie, ENK, West 49, and Shirt.Woot.

Joby's list of tattoo clients includes many NBA stars and well-known actors and actresses. Joby's illustration was also chosen as the logo image for one of the early Vans Warped Tours. For more information about Joby Cummings, please visit: www.jobycummings.com.

About Daniel Franzese:
Daniel Franzese is an actor known for his interesting choices in cult film and television, from his first film, Larry Clark's "BULLY", to the hit comedy "Mean Girls", to the upcoming, highly-anticipated remake of the infamous exploitation film, "I Spit on Your Grave". In the past five years, Daniel has become extremely involved in the Los Angeles art world, curating several art shows and art parties surrounding fun and unique themes, such as his smash-hit art show at Royal/T, "Crusaders & Haters: Superheroes and Villains in American Pop Culture". The show's opening drew a crowd of more than 1,000 guests, dressed in head-to-toe superhero garb. Daniel's newest acting roles, airing early this year, are on the TV shows "Party Down" and "Burn Notice".
