just finished this one today.
That's cool Gary. Saw it on FB when some mutual friends "liked" it...didn't realize it was you. Dig it.
Some stuff from this week.
Outstanding work Gary ........
Thanks Josh and Bob. Those bikes are AWESOME! ... and Bob; I'm diggin' Bowser!
We drove all the way to the Lone Star Roundup with ACME and Grundy, covered the booth walls with lots of hot rod art for sale and this scratchboard original sold first. I had fun talking with real artists Squindo, McPhail, Shawn Warcott, Weesner, Timebomb Jasin, Crash, Low Cab, Norwell, Ben Mitchell, and so many cool HAMB stars and fans. Next time I'll bring more bike art. Big thanks to Lone Star Mopar for retrieving my banner which "blew off" the fence and saved me having to pay a big fine for littering the fine state of TX.
Just finished a new T Shirt Design for the online site I'm launching....
hey bomonster you have really cool stuff. ive never bought anything art related but i looked at one of your prints and bought it right away and am really happy with it. Thank you
I so hate you, just like every one before it, that is just spot on! I couldn't turn out anything close to that (And in school I was meant to learn how to!) But no, I spent all my time doing physics and math! What a NERD!

Hey Bob, Great work !
Is THAT "Attitude ?" Or What ?
Gary, I dunno how I missed yours but I did. Very cool image that one, is it just me or is that slightly 'softer' than your normal work?
Thank you Smoke'........much appreciated.
Next month........it starts!
...No big new piece here this week, just this little reminisce on olden days 'round here. Something bigger next week..
Nice work again guys!
Doug over at Cowtown Speed Shop, Independence, MO had me do a T-shirt of his dad's '29 Model A PickUp:
thanks ger im as proud as a new papa this is my truck and i love it .you truely are an artist thanks very much ron (hotrodlane)
You fellers are all rockin' the joint. Here's a little doodle I did earlier in the week...
Wow there's already so much kool stuff and Friday's only 30 minutes old!!
Bomonster- your work always amazes me!!
jdustu- really bitchin sculptures!! I love metal work like that. There's a kid in my shop class that made a "metal" band you'd probably dig. I'll try to take a pic of it.
Dutch Courage- very kool work, man!
Jigger- Van's rule!!! There's a guy that lives under the overpass (yes, down by the river) going into Fortuna in a freakin sweet early 60s Dodge van.... Every time I drive by him I have visions of almost exactly your sketch...
Tonight (geez, It's past my bed time) I'm the featured artist at my high school for McKinleyville Art Night. I'm super pumped for it! Anyways, here's some last minute pieces I literally just finished. I'm gonna be doing some live work on a couple cars there too, I'll post those next week.
My mom uses to be into photography, and I credit her for both the photos and the idea.
I've really been diggin on asymmetrical pieces lately. Just gives it a little more work for the eye to do I think.
If anyone local is interested the show starts at 6pm and is at McKinleyville High School right in the front parking lot. Free hot dogs and root beer floats, too!!!
Never mind Christmas, I wish every day was Friday!
Salut les hambers !
A 61 bubble chevy for me this week!
Made on my Ipad, while travelling in a train. I used a awesome software called "artrage" ...
Great work everyone! here are a couple photos I took with my 1953 Argus C3 using Tmax100 film
Here is a new scratchboard piece I finished I call "BarHopper" I wanted to try a fishscale paint job on something so I decided to do this. I had fun. The actual tank is only about a 1 1/2" wide. Original is 9"x12". Lots of fun. Hope you dig it! Nate Grice
Good morning.....a couple monochrome shots today...
BUICK 59: WOW what a photo. That picture screams speed and horsepower, you can almost hear the whine from that blower!!
EVERYONE ELSE: Fantastic work also! It's going to be a very good show!!!
Helsinki American Car Show 2012
dig it JJ
Fantastic start to the show.
Gary, that is one fine piece!,
Josh and Bomonster are becoming a given that anything they post will be better than the previous weeks offering!!
Corvette Bob, your skills always amaze me.
Dutch Courage, you are just an outright Pro.
Jigger, I always look forward to yours, you draw what is in all our heads!
Forey, Wish I could be there.
Spoggie, Very cool, I really like the style.
If I missed anyone, it's because I'm old.
One right on the edge of 63, the Chrysler Turbine, burning the weeds.
Great work guys. Here is a bit of this weeks work.
