You know that guy in High School that everyone got along with. He was every guy's buddy and every girl’s teddy bear. That is Shawn of Sink Ink. Shawn “Sink” Sinkhorn has been a friend of mine for many years. We recently found each other again on Facebook. He quickly directed me to his Sink Ink page and I fell in love with his art work. We had him do 4 personalized pieces from Toy Story for Cole and I have to say he does an amazing job. Just take a look at Woody, can you hear him say, “There’s a snake in my boot!”
Shawn hasn’t been physically well lately and it meant so much to me for him to work through his pain and create these portraits for my child. So I wanted to thank him and my readers by introducing you guys. ;)
Please tell us a little bit about yourself.

I do art every day, any time an idea does pop in my head I stop what I am doing and draw it out even late at night if I have a dream about it I get up and draw it out.
