Below, that's me, Erik Culver, in my shop circa 2013. I'm sure I still have the flannel shirt. My new years resolution in 2012 was to build something of my own design and sell it to someone. It wasn't much of a vision, but concrete enough to propel me to start OldBoyCo. Later that year I'd step off the cliff into self employment. It was the spark that lit the flame I can't put out.
Old Boy lives on in spirit, weekend welding, night sketching and the occasional commission.
If you'd like to speak about an idea, commission, or learn more about a national student art marketplace called ArtStartArt I ran between 2017 and 2020, reach out to me. I am currently the CMO at EarlybirdCBD.com - definitely worth checking out as well.
