    Back in 1989, I met Steve as I would walk to UPS in Maspeth Queens. It turned out we both worked at UPS during nights to pay for college. Steve was always the typical artist. What I mean by that is he would see things in our environment that I saw as nothing but garbage or clouds but he saw as something worth drawing…from a dragon to a bunch of zany characters that only he could see. Steve and I became good friends. Eventually, I introduced Steve to a girlfriend I had and he did a tatoo on her back. I saw his work everyday. Steve was and is one of the only people I know who had a dream and chased it like no one else. I have drawings Steve made while we were waiting to go to work back in the early 1990’s. I respect Steve for his talent and his determination to do what he loved. His story deserved an outlet and Steve may not know it but he’s the only friend my Mother actually liked because he was so nice to her when he would call. Steve and I would see concerts together and we even went to the 2nd woodstock together. I may be in Miami now but I always keep an eye out for Steve or his work. Steve has a tattoo style all his own, it stands out amongst the Mickey Mouse tatoos artists that are out there today. Steve I love you brother, keep truckin’.
