My Given name is James Buford Whiteside III, though most who call me friend, also call me Buttrock. I am a mixed medium artist with an emphasis is metalworking & recycled materials. I have spent the last six years relentlessly chasing visions from other realms and pulling them into this world, & this project shall be no different.

I have spent most of my life helping others, no matter the workload, & giving of myself and time in hopes of making the world smile. I have always been a believer of strong bonds and service to community, which is why this next endeavor is so important to see into fruition.

I am currently working on the next level vessel for our journey. This bad mamma jamma of a motorhome is a 1972 Dodge Discoverer 25. A rare bird indeed with just over 3,000 units made by the White Motor Company from 1971 - 1974, this spaceship like land yacht was the first motorhome to be engineered using a wind tunnel, which allowed famed stylist Larry Shinoda to get 10.1 MPG out of this 10,000 pound beast of a motor coach.

Fascinating thing is that while the overall space of our studio on wheels is increasing, the general rules of our tour schedule shall stay the same, which is something we've both already proven to ourselves we can accomplish! In fact, I find the similarities between this new babe & David Lee Dodge to only be a sure sign that destiny is in play as always.

Our goal is to rebuild this beauty, ensuring her both safe, comfortable, & above all, completely tour ready. Stack the walls with the artistic endeavors of those we believe in and hold close, & take their creations on the road with us throughout our journey. This is a small way we can say thank you to those that inspire us, & have been part of our past galleries, 'The Shoplife Showcase'. Whether or not an artist from LA will ever make it to Florida or not, we can showcase their works for them every time we stop.

Above all, we wish to share this journey with everyone, because if you know us, it's all about that endless list of buds we hope to share time with from coast to coast. We look forward to you following our story, & with any luck, we'll share time soon, in a city near you!
