      Hi, by drawing, I assume you mean the prints that I’m offering here. The prints are limited editions of only 250, and yes they are numbered and hand signed. I usually include a bunch of extra lazer prints along with the art of myself with the original painting, and other goodies. I hope this answers your question and helps.

    My friend and band member has purchased one of your “papa het” paintings. The problem is I love it too! But I feel as though having the same painting would be odd. Couple questions, What would it cost to paint james hetfield in a different way? Also, we are in a band called Diablero ( check us out on itunes!), if I sent a photo of us playing a live show to you, could you paint your own interpretation of it? If so what would that cost. I’m working off a firefighter wage but i have a blank spot on my wall that needs to be filled 🙂 37″ x 26 or larger would be great. I’m not too experienced with art but i’ve seen the “papa het” piece up close and it was spectacular. If you need me to answer any questions let me know! Thx- Mike ogilvie

      I’m with Mike, but would curious if it would be possible to have a painting of the entire band from the early 80’s including Cliff Burton.
      Your Papa Het is incredible. I love the detail and the speed of his right hand.
