Painted In Blue

Tony "josiesboy" Gonzalez is a full-time leathercrafter and visual artist originally from New York. He is the owner of Painted in Blue, a creative house that originated in 2017—specializing in pushing the boundaries of leather creativity.

His leatherworking journey began in late 2019, after buying his first hide from Tandy, and he started flourishing all through the quarantine of 2020. Starting a new craft in the middle of a global pandemic was tough, but he has often said that leatherworking has kept his mind at ease through the difficult times. Two years into his craft and residing in Philadelphia, he has two main goals. The first is to feed his creative spirit at all times, and the second is to inspire more young black and brown people to continue this tradition.
