Franco Vescovi, founder of Bishop Rotary, sat down with OG Abel to discuss the OG Abel x Bishop collaboration.
“To be able to do a collaboration with you, OG Abel, me as a tattooer and as a fan of yours — I'm excited. In 27 years as a tattoo artist, I've seen more people tattoo your art by far than anybody else. You're not a tattooer, but you need no introduction in the tattoo world because every tattooer knows who you are. They've probably tattooed a piece or two. You're somebody that when they see that there's a collaboration with Bishop and OG Abel, man, they're gonna want in. Especially when they see your sketchbook. How many years have people been asking you for a sketchbook?”
“It's a question that I get asked quite a lot. Great to finally be able to say hey, we've got a sketchbook with Bishop. And it's gonna be a sketchbook where you can see the sketches of some of my classics, and how they came about. And also some pages so that you can go and draw yourself, maybe even trace and shade one of the pieces.”
