Wow. I just found out while standing in line at a convenience store. Some random guy was complementing me on my tattoos and asked me who did them. I said Pat Brabham...and his eyes got real big. "You did not hear?" he said...and then he told me the sad sad news. RIP man. You gave me my first tattoo when I was 17 way back in '97. And years later you gave me a sleeve. I wish I had known you better, that is my regret. Thank you for the tattoos; thank you for the long conversations about art, music, and the things that we both despised/disagreed when it came to people/culture; thank you for the couple of prints of your amazing art and the Christmas card painting especially (it was by far one of my favs). You will missed and NEVER forgotten. Hope you have found rest.
