    You beat me to it Ryan, I had watched that today twice and had thought of sending you the link.
    I need to see the final result...at Chopped next weekend hopefully.

    It would be cool to see it build to some sort of resolution, wether that's rolling it out of the booth for a shot of the completed work from above, prepping the products to spray it, or something else. As it sits it just sort of, fades...

    That said, I'll take this approach over "the most bitchenest fisheye lens in the world" approach any day.

    That was amazing. That guy has some incredible skills, especially when he's free-handing those long cuts with a razor blade. That is so hard to do.

    I would LOVE to see the finished product!!

    A very gifted artist at work . Damn steadiest hands I have ever seen ! Can't wait till next week to see what's next ! I really enjoyed the music as I was listening to the rain hitting the roof on my garage while I was watching him working on a vision that only he could see ! To be that young and have so much talent !

    Speaking from experience, what you can't "see" happening is the almost machine-like control over the pressure of the blade. Too much and you get the dreaded spread between the colors on a hot day. Too little, nasty ragged edges of the finished line. The other thing you can't see is the nearly 3D vision it takes to get there, to see it finished in your own mind like a blueprint to builder. The tape in and of itself is an art form, yet temporary like something nature lets us see for only a few days, then it's gone. The tape gets wadded up into a sticky ball of glue and paper, tossed in trash, it's job is done.

    This is the juice for the craftsman. This is the reason that to the right eye, a car that's perfectly blocked out in primer has look that inspires. It's not kool because it's primer, it's a clean sheet of paper. It makes the car's lines look like they may never look again once covered in glossy smooth paint. Same with a perfect bare metal finished body. The craftsmanship is there, naked for the whole world to see, ready to be dressed in a classy outfit of individual color. You're right Ryan, it's these things that really do take you in. It's a vision coming to life. I almost don't want to see the finished product. I like imagining all the different ways and colors that it could be. Thanks bro...

    Some good video work and some talented taping work too. Can't imagine how much time that much take. I'd probably be dead before I ever got it done. I can't even seem to manage getting a 1 solid color shot onto my truck, let alone 6 years worth of taping.

    The one other thing that hasn't been mentioned is the concentration and focus needed to mask off the patterns . After about a half hour or so you can't see straight and start going crosseyed. Beer only makes it worse .:)

    Wow! ... I second what bob-o said! ... I've always enjoyed your posts in the "Friday Art Show" threads, but (until now) had never checked out your website ... You're quite a gifted artist:

    I wonder if Ryan is related to Kyle Ford? I met Kyle a couple of years back @ the Salt & then the HAMB Drags......Oh yea, "Nice!"......This video is like watching a spider build it's web, mesmerizing with great detail to catch all.
