Sam Garriott Antonacci: "North Coast Spirits is a portrait book of my art mentors and lifelong friends here in the Pacific Northwest. One of my first jobs here was working as a scrimshaw artist, and my art education really began there. My co-workers taught me a mixture of technique, perspective, art history, and the mythology of the Native American tribes of the Pacific Northwest. Each of the drawings is representative of some quality of these mentors."
