I haven't got to post much art in 2011... Not for lack of doing any, just been a CRAZY busy year. New Shop, New home, New job = not a lot of Internet play time. So, here ya go. Some of these may have been posted before, if so- Sorry.
I always like to check in on Fridays for a quick glance and some insperation. You guys KILL IT every week! My hats off to you all.

Thanks for the goods in 2011, and here's to a CALMER 2012.

Joshua Shaw

This year I've been hitting a few shows with my pop up store selling my BOMONSTER art. Seems like every show I attend a few of the same guys hang out, buy my stuff and tell me they're starting a car club and want me to design a shirt logo. Every show it seems they add a few more "members" who also buy my stuff. It must be part of their new member initiation because they always end up dropping a couple hundred bucks at my booth and telling me they want me to design a shirt for them. So at the end of the year, I figured they've already paid me enough to get a logo in return so I dropped this idea on them (all they told me was they like early 60's Chevy trucks):



They flipped out and told me to go nuts. And while I was at it, I thought I might share my process with this FAS. I usually start with a drawing to establish proportions and composition. I don't get too detailed - just the basic outline and maybe some light direction. What you don't see here is the truck reference photos from my online scrap pile - many of which I grabbed off the H.A.M.B. Then I transfer the drawing to a clean piece of scratchboard by rubbing the back with pencil and then redraw over the lines transferring the design onto the scratchboard. The size of this piece is 16 x 12.



I work on a flat table top taping the scratchboard to a drawing board. I work with a desklamp close to the work to see the faint graphite lines. I use an Xacto knife with a #16 blade. I wrap tape near the end of the knife to cushion my finger tips from the constant pressure of scraping the surface. Whenever I start a drawing I usually attack what I think might be the trickiest to pull off. That way if I mess up, I can start over without losing too much work. In this case I must have thought the eyes, arms and bent truck would be the trickiest.



Once I had the trucks looking good it was time to knock out the type. I really like the look of hand drawn type but also appreciate type design so the font needs to be accurate under the loose lines. I also like to leave some black showing so it's not 100% white so I felt thousands of parallel scrap marks were the way to go. Since I sometimes get lost in tiny lines. I jump ahead and scrap some lines to establish a line angle on each letter. That way if I'm veering a little off course I can readjust as I get closer to the pre-scratched marks. By taping the scratchboard onto a drawing board, I can also spin the work to fit the angle of my hand. I'm best at clockwise scraps from the 8 o'clock to the 1:00 range. Counter clockwise scraps from about 12 to 7. I constantly spin my board where my wrist works best.



After defining the letter forms with a thousand scraps I add some detail to the letter edges and generally touch up the trucks until I start to think I might have ruined the whole piece. Once signed, I scan into photoshop and fix any funny edges. Then I make an eps file and open in illustrator. I rasterize and do a live trace adjusting the setting a couple of times until it's closest to the actual scratch. Once saved it is a clean vector file which can be screen printed, reduced to a business card or blown up for truck graphics. The Wreckers loved it and that always make the effort worthwhile. Maybe now they'll stop asking for a shirt design.

Thanks for this great write up on how your great pieces of art come to be. Although I don't comment on all of them, I think each and every one is truly remarkable. I hope I will meet you in person sometime at a show next year.

Wanted to include this, a photo sent to me by a happy customer. He wanted a display stand for a knob he purchased awhile back. A "Spark Plug" stand seemed to fit the bill. Thanks

OMG. I remember I had this mag when I was a young teen. My Mom caught me with it I probably would still have it, if I'd had it laminated back then
