Great interview. If you're a big fan of Coop, get the Devil's Advocate book. Mine's setting on my coffee table as the center piece of the living room. There's a comment about "ritual amputation" being the next phase in the body modification genre. To quote Coop, "Blame me if your kid comes home with a wooden leg." I never laughed out loud so hard when reading a book in my life. I'm pretty sure that devil with the cigar will have lots of staying power. A fellow HAMBer did this one for me. At any rate it beats the shit out of a tribal arm band

Great interview.
The hot Wheels thing was sort of a back door deal. The set was done for a Japanese collectors' show, so Mattel corporate was a little more cool about letting me do what I wanted, than if it had been for a domestic release. It was great working with Van and all the other creative people at Hot Wheels. They were just as excited about the project as I was!

Nice brush work ...i do agree
Congrat's on developing a great talent and passion for art, very inspiring indeed.

someday i hope to render hotroddin images with such grace with a brush, black ink and paper!

...other brush masters are Dirty Donny, Alan Forbes, Jimbo Phillips and Court Johnson (80's Powell Peralta graphics).

thanks for the interview Ryan!

All those guys are awesome, but I must single out Jim Phillips as a big influence. That Screaming Hand is still one of the coolest logos EVER.


Just like the guys who say "It ain't a hot rod if it doesn't have three pedals!" I think you don't really become a "real" artist until you learn to ink with a brush. Mastering that brush is one of the most challenging skills you can ever learn. You gotta keep doing it, too. I started inking something today after being away from the table for a couple of weeks, and it was giving me fits for a while, until I settled into my groove.

Rev. Grimm: I lived in Yucaipa from '88 until '91, so it's very likely. I worked at a t shirt shop on the main drag, across from the high school, called "T's by C". I was driving a black 68 buick skylark GS around then. I lived in a little red house about fifty feet from the 10 freeway, in front of "Pat's Pots", a business that sent out those trucks to suck shit out of septic tanks.

Ah, the glamorous life of the artist...

I had a chance to hang out with Coop at Bonneville, but I thank Ryan for asking all the questions I didn't get a chance to ask. Great interview man, thanks.

Coop is a ruler..!

him and he's wife have always been the nicest people.his a hell of an influence on the up and coming artist.he's given me countless pointers and sugestion .and i had the honor of striping his car 3 years ago..

Coop is a ruler ..!

it's good to see guys like him to come up and be successfull.we have some of the same back ground..growing up in a pro cowboy/jock universe..it gets a little wierd being that skater punk in class..so good for him.

Coop is a ruler ..!
