The Evolution of an Artist: Thom Jones

Both Kevin and I have been waiting on this one to drop in its entirety, The Evolution of an Artist: Thom Jones. Seattle based furniture designer builder, metalworker and motorcycle builder Thom is a bit of a jack of trades. I first became aware of him through the Harley/chopper world and soon after saw his amazing furniture he builds under the name Semigood. This is a great little behind the scenes look at the evolution of an artist; from writing graffiti to building furniture to building choppers it is all a natural progression for an artist like Thom Jones.
