    What an Honor. It must be cool to have you name amongst the most respected artists. It's well deserved, you have created a community that pushes what we are all doing here to another level. Congrats Ryan, the shirt is sick.

    Here are a couple pieces I worked on this week.
    One an Italian hot rod, and the other
    a colorized sketch for a future rendering.

    Ok I was having a little fun with a sketch I did for my next metal sculpture. This is the pencil sketch for the project. It will stand around 3 feet tall and done out of welded pieces of metal. The next one is when I was having fun.

    Ryan, I like it! I thought I would put on a old one because I can.:D Someday I will finish it. I like pen&ink stuff, reminds me of underground comics etc.

    Lounging in The Gallery w/ a cocktail & digging on all of that killer orig. art was a blast last year. Sadly though, I blow most of my "disposable income" on my heap & my walls are outta room.
    Oh well....I can always drink & dream:D
    Any of you folks who have yet to go upstairs & check this stuff out during roundup, I highly encourage you to.

    Ryan, ordinarily I don't like to pump the egos of guys who have TWO great cars in their garage and run with the cool crowd already. But you have really done something real and beneficial for thousands of people, so it ain't ego - it's well earned.

    So go forth with pride, mr. hot rod lovin', keyboard poundin', cyberspace keeper of the traditional flame-guy!

    We recently did the signage and menu boards for the Austin Grill Custom Burrito Shop in Fairfax. This is a miniature version of the "EAT" arrows that we do for their larger restaurants. It's all aluminum, 1-shot, and some nasty smelling chemicals to make it rust like steel. Killer burritos at this place, too!

    The Franco art looks great! I hope to get a shirt at the Roundup. I'll be trying to get to the show at the Continental and check out the artwork there also. Maybe someday I can get my art in there. When at the Roundup stop by my vendors booth and say Hi and check out my paintings. I should be at the meet and greet also. I'll be the guy with 3 rugrats running around. You may have seen 2 of them running around last year at the Roundup with goatees made of real grass (no, not that kind).
    Heres my contribution for this week.
