Help Budrock Design a Guitar Pick!

Hello Willie Fans,

After looking at all the great 80th birthday poster art, I thought some of you might be interested in helping me bring a little hapiness to those hard working stagehands across our country who help us set up the Willie Nelson & Family Road Show.

I am accepting artwork for an upcoming gimme guitar pick that will be printed for me to personally give away to stagehands and spotlight operators who help me during set up and tear down of the Willie Nelson & Family shows. This will be a souvineer for them for a job well done.  A keepsake.

It will be laser printed, It will not be hot stamped, so there are no limitations due to dyes.

One idea……………………….I helped hang Willie’s lights (with lighting instruments)

another…………………….I ran a spotlight for Willie Nelson (with spotlight)

another………….. I helped hang Willie’s Texas flag (with Flag)

another…….I helped Willie get “On the Road Again” (person pushing a road case) or (lifting an amplifier)

I am open to other ideas…………..

Gimme something to look at………………

remember this will be printed on a tiny canvas approx 1″ x 1″ in this shape (below).

This is a downloadable template….for reference

I will be accepting artwork via WilliesLD@aol.com

Looking forward to some awesome submissions.

If yours is used, you will receive credit for the Design

Thanks,

budrock

Lukas Nelson & the Promise of the Real Guitar Picks (thanks, Guthrie Thomas)

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Singer/songwriter/artist Guthrie Thomas incorporated the art of Micah Nelson into these beautiful guitar picks for Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real.

“Although, Lukas Nelson, is the son of the Great Country Singer, Willie Nelson, ‘Make No Mistake About It ‘  this young man is Excellent, not only with the songs and music he writes, but as an individual as well, with the courtesy, the kindness, and all else that goes with being a genuine person.

I do not say this because I work for Willie Nelson. I say this because, not only have Lukas and I met, I’ve heard him play, and I’ve spoken to
him on the phone, and, as a side note, I did not call him.  He called me just to say thanks.

Willie Nelson Guitar Pick of the Day: Willie Nelson & Family 4th of July Picnic 2013

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

pick

“Good 4th of July to you Linda..! And, here is the 40th “Willie Nelson” 4th of July Picnic Pick. Of Course. Due to a slight miscommunication between Dr. “Budrock” and myself, it was supposed to read just Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic, rather I received the same art that read, Willie and Family, so, mistakes happen, although Dr. Budrock took the blame, I, too, must be responsible equally, as we work on Willie’s Picks so close together on these.. So, it is now a Very Rare Pick, much like the upside down airplane on that very famous postage stamp. I see the bright lights in everything. And, since the Family was there, my guess is, Both Dr. “Budrock” and myself, satisfied the powers of the fans in all aspects…”

Award Winning “Willie Nelson Texas Special” Guitar Pick

Monday, May 27th, 2013

Congratulations to Budrock Prewitt and Guthrie Thomas for award winning guitar pick design!

“I just was notified that Dr. “Budrock,” and myself, that this “Willie Texas Special” Pick designed by the two of us won “First Place” in the U.S. Die Makers Association, or something along those lines.  I imagine we will get a small certificate of congratulations to hang on the wall. Of course, no one but Willie Nelson on this earth has picks made like this one. Well Done, Willie & Dr. Budrock…  And, sincerely, thanks to our “Die Makers” for submitting the final pick to whatever association Die Makers are members of…We do not make the Dies for any picks, just the picks…

This is one of the rarest picks on Earth, and, by far, one of the hardest and most difficult to print, let alone hold, possess, or own…A true collectors quest. This Willie Pick is printed 8 Times on “Each” pick — one of the most difficult as well, as you get 7 times to screw it up. Once we get to “Willie’s Signature” which is the last stamp made, we’re home free. The Misprint rate — Two in 10, and the misprint count starts with the very first pick, and the very first Die. There are 8 dies for this single pick.” — Guthrie Thomas

Way to go guys!  I treasure my guitar pick collection, that’s for sure.

 Thanks to Budrock, Willie Nelson & Family’s lighting director for sharing a picture of this guitar pick:  “I had this idea about a week before this show. The Guthrie Thomas Company did a rush job for us.  This design was done by Guthrie Thomas after a short phone discussion.   We only printed a very limited (144) number of these event picks.” — Buddy
