Rollo Banks "Year of the Ox" Design on a mug!
Michael Malone, better known by his nom de ink Rollo Banks, was a brilliant iconoclast and renowned tattoo artist whose mastery of the form earned international acclaim. As the Austin Chronicle’s erstwhile cover guru, Banks created the Chinese New Year series, which appeared annually from 1986 through 1997. The Chronicle is proud to make this collection available to readers as a wearable tribute to our late friend, the inimitable Rollo Banks.
