Guitar straps for Black Sabbath

Posted on by Ryan

In March I was asked by Heavy Leather NYC to create the artwork for custom guitar straps for Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath for their 2013 tour. The pen and ink illustrations were laser engraved by Artifact Publishing on Leather and Vinyl and then sewn and assembled by Heavy Leather NYC to create two one of a kind custom guitar straps.

Needless to say, it was a supreme honor to create something for arguably the two most influential musicians in metal history.  Thank you to Rachael at Heavy Leather NYC for approaching me with this project and Dylan at Artifact for doing such an amazing job with the engraving and cutting.
