Ep. 195 ”D.I.Y. Punk Rock Vibes” (A Diary Entry with Nick Baxter)

It's so odd to say that Nick Baxter, of all people, has earned his place with me as an icon. He was epic when I started my apprenticeship. He was deserving of much praise then, but at that time, I couldn't find the energy to care. I noted the obvious: That he's an incredible artist with a perpetual youthful look. However, it took another 15 years for me to watch this incredible artist and finally, get to the point of a bit of anxiety in interviewing him. 

Nick Baxter of (Art Realm Tattoo and Art Gallery in Austin, Tx) has always been worthy of respect. When he commits, he does so with his whole being. 

Thank you Nick. It was such a huge deal to me (truly). This show is honored to host your Apprenticeship Diary Entry. 

As always, bless you and thank you, Diary Listeners!
