    Hey there,
    I thought I'd share with you all some photos of a custom painted Ukulele I did for a charity event here in New York City. 10 artists were each given 2 Kala Brand Ukuleles to decorate as they see fit. 10 of which were auctioned off to benefit the children's charity *Hi-Art* at the prestigious Haunch Of Venison Gallery which is owned & operated by Christie's:rock . The other 10 are each being given to an important or influental person in the world. Mine is being given to the Dali Lama and my friend Faiyez's is being given to Michelle Obama :lolol 
    Ukuleles were used as the event was put together by David Barratt of
    The Beatles Complete on Ukulele and it was his wonderful idea.

    One of my Ukuleles has Jazz and Optimus on one side, and Bumblebee, Ratchet, & Ironhide on the other. In the photo by the window you can clearly see Jazz and the back of OP's trailer. Sadly, I couldn't get any good pics of the other guys but they're on there :)

    Wow, you legend! That is a totally amazing ukulele, and it's great that you managed to sneak in some Transformers!

    Wow, it's going to the Dalai Lama? Major kudos, my friend!

    Thank you all :)  I'd imagine the Dali Lama gets all kinds of promotional items, "swag", gifts etc. being beloved by many as he is. I actually proposed my uke be given to George Lucas :lol  and of course when I first heard the details of where the event was being held I though "wow, that's the kind of affair Bruce Wayne attends"

    This is yet another fine piece showcasing your nice, bold style :) 

    (FYI: it's still "2-D Art"; "3-D Art" refers to 3-D renders; "3-D Art" that's physical, three-dimensional work are "Customs"/"Non-TF" :) )
