"Sam took on exactly the mindset of our tour, and expressed it visually, and perfectly. He effectively drew the spirit of the bus, and captured the audacity and humor which were the keynotes of our time on the road. Once we realized we were going with an illustration for our 55-foot canvas on wheels, there was never a question as to who would create it. Sam Spratt's warped mind was just what we needed to set the visual tone for the whole tour. The bus turned heads everywhere we went."
-Joe McNally and David Hobby
