I met John Pickens while painting at PROJECT in Vegas. We chatted for a while and after the show we reconnected. He owns and runs John Pickens Clothier, a menswear boutique in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Incidentally, I have driven through Shreveport on at least 6 occasions while traveling from Atlanta to Fort Worth and back again.
