    Hi LLoyd,

    That piece was done by Charlie Callahan. He was actually the first artist we featured at the Low Tide Club in Sausalito. If you look at our home page you can see some pictures we too this week of a huge mural he is currently doing at facebook. You can also see pictures from the show he did at our shop here

    Charlie Callahan,

    Simply PHENOMENAL work! I cannot get over the fact this is not 3-D?! It looks incredible. I'd drive up from San Diego to N. California to see these pieces of art … just fantastic. I studied marine biology and the urchin is a favorite. What a talent you are.

    Lloyd, thanks for sharing the photo! Simply stunning!
