"Art dealer Ruth Ann Brown of the New American Art Union announced the 10 recipients of a special artists' stipend project. Each artist will receive $8,000 --a $7,000 stipend plus $1,000 for art materials."-D.K Row, The Oregonian, October 10, 2007
"As part of the process to transform their iconic “Pyle” of mini-bikes into official public art, the Zoobombers have chosen two artists to help turn their visions into a reality."

"I took it for granted until now, but Lavadour is a brilliant colorist. In these paintings, specifically the multi-paneled ones, he juxtaposes colors from different panels to dazzling, dramatic effect, stirring the eyes so much with activity and music that you feel you're watching a fireworks show in the heavens."
