POW! WOW! Long Beach 2016 went by fast, we (Gary Musgrave and myself) wrapped up another mural for POW! WOW! Long Beach. We were honored to have been asked back to do another painting for the festival. This year we officially joined forces and named ourselves “The Draculas”. You can see our mural in person at the Westin Hotel located at 333 East Ocean Blvd. Here’s our profile on the POW! WOW! site
The Draculas are a Southern California-based duo comprised of artists Gary Musgrave and Jeff McMillan.
