My name is Josh Duffy, and I was born an artist. I have tried to escape from what I am many times
and always ended up with a pencil or brush in my hand. Like my mom always told me, “it’s like
diarreah it runs in the genes”, but it sounds better when you say it rather than to read it. She is an
extremely accomplished artist, and I feel sometimes as though I live my carreer in her shadow,
although we lead two completely different paths in the artworld. I have been around art my entire
life, and making a great living off of it has never been a question for me. All of my family, including
my mom, dad, stepdad, and my brother are all amazing artists, and work hard at what they do to
be the best. I have that same drive instilled in me, although my mom has paintings all the world
over, including a painting that was carried into space on the ‘94 Edeavor shuttle, I am hoping to
achieve the success and recognition world wide as she has. Who knows maybe I will meet an
astronaut one day and sleeve him up haha. Until then I will be tattooing, painting, drawing, playing
music, and raising a family. Afterall, I wouldn’t be doing what I do without the two biggest
inspirations in my life, Family (and friends), and HEAVY METAL!
Here are just a few books that I have had the absolute pleasure to be included in, which are all
available at mementopublishing.com
