Justin Catania New Illustrator of Vagabond Journey

A new wind of talent just blew into Vagabond Journey.com.

It is a wind that comes through the hands of man who plies an ancient craft within the turning wheels of modern time; it is a wind that is pent up inside the slender frame of one of the most amazing artists that I have ever met in the world.

I am very excited to announce that the Brooklyn based woodblock print artist, Justin Catania, has begun topping off the articles and travelogue entries of vagabondjourney.com with his illustrations.

Justin is a patient carver of wood in an age of high-speed-everything; he is a plier of an ancient art but does so with the senses of his own time: his methods are archiac, but his products are living, breathing, here and now.

Justin’s art acts as a hinge between the old world and the new, as he lives his own time while singing an ancient song.

In point, he is a man who can take a chunk of a tree and turn it into something beautiful — something that will you gasp and ponder.

I am honored that we will now be riding down this river together.

Lets see where it goes.
