Grace Sharington And Eric Tessmer interview

“Once upon a time, there was a boy from Wisconsin that had a choice to move to the big city of Madison or far away to Austin, Texas. He was raised by wolves and disciplined by cougars, so he picked Austin for the Bar-b-que. By the way, he plays guitar in his free time. Somehow this has gained him a reputation of being compared to legends like Stevie Ray Vaughn.”
