Default Artist recommendations B&G

Iím looking to get a really elegant half sleeve done - Iíve always wanted to get something done by Jun Cha but books closed until 2021 and a whopping 6k minimum.

Mumia is another favorite of mine, but out of country.

Looking for really clean B&G artists in US that donít have their books closed for the indefinite future. Mainly looking for people who do Greek godís, but will look at people who have similar style to Mumia.

David Vega is the only bng artist I'm interested in atm. Though he is more hyper realism than those 2.

Funny you mention him, I contacted him a few days ago and waiting for a response. His stuff is insane. I didnít even know he was in Austin (where I live).

The only thing I wonder with his is how well theyíll hold up since the shading is so light and minimal line work.

Man I seem to not be in the loop for any of the Austin based artists. This dudes work is really solid!

Here is healed work he posted. I think he says he works in layers so if so that could explain it healing well even though it looks so smooth? Plus he is only 200 per hour at the moment, so he is a decent bargain. I'm just waiting for him to reply back to my email...

Got to see her work at the San Diego convention and her work is nuts in person. Haven't seen healed in person yet.

Oh I know Jamie, her work is insane. A lot of the local B&G artists in my area talk her up a lot, so I'm a little surprised they didn't mention Vega after seeing his work.

I want some B&G so bad after looking at good work, but I"m just too loyal to the neo trad
