CigarCraig’s 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways 2015 Day 7: The Cigartist

By now you should know me well enough to know that I try to do things a little differently now and then, and today’s present is something very special.  Eric Whitfield, The Cigartist, is a talented artist and a cigar lover, and has merged these two passions to create amazing art. I’ve had the great fortune to have met Eric on a couple occasions and he’s a great guy, and he’s been commissioned to do paintings for many luminaries in the cigar industry. His work is pretty fantastic. Eric has provided one of his hand painted fifteen count travel humidors for Day 7. This is a work of art and I’m completely envious of the winner, no that I need another travel humidor, but for the beauty of it. I will have Eric’s art hanging on my wall one of these days. Retail Value on this piece is $150.





Now, this is kind of funny. the winner of the Joya de Nicaragua ashtray, cutter and cigars left the comment “Huge fan of LFD!”, and I was tempted to re-draw because sometimes I can be a wee bit cranky in the morning.  I let is slide, who isn’t a fan of LFD?  We can also be fans of JdN, right? Anyway, Andrew, please send me your address!  I’m sure in his excitement he got mixed up!

All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment on the post of the day, if you can, try to post what you know or how you feel about today’s present, the folks donating the gift should get some feedback for their troubles!
