i'm diggin the scratchboard!!!!
nice work to you all....... i'm really liking this stuff....!!!!
i actually have quite a few to share this week...i've been so busy getting ready to set up shop at the Lake Havasu Rockabilly Reunion.... so "bombs away"
these two are 16 x 20 canvas paintings. the top one done exclusively in 1 shot. the bottom one done with enamel and acrylic.
1shot on a cigar box that I painted a charcoal metallic outside, and black with microflake on the inside.
this one's still in progress... i'll probably finish it today. then take it to the booth to get a nice thick clear coat this weekend!
1shot on lawn furniture!
keep up the art show... it's my favorite part about fridays!!!!!
Giant Pez dispenser. Eyes light up and plays the movie theme. was sitting on the shelf so I striped it.
awesome art as always. last eekend I went to the Supernationals here in New Mexico and worked to donate to the Ronald McDonals house. Here some of the stuff I was able to get a pic of.
lowrider bike fenders
...and a couple new ones from Johnny Ace and Kali.
DollKustom, Yep I was there! I didn't know what to expect in the middle of all those tumbleweeds but the up close access to so much kool made it one of my favorite shows last year. I'm hoping Gene W checks out all this art awesomeness today.
51ddmae, Wild mix of work. "Picnik" is classic and deserves to be on a shirt.
dustdevil, Keep scratching! Crazy you mention Jr High art class - that's what I'm drawing from too. Secret's out.
Ah, I did the base for the '29 Seagrave I posted last week. Here it is setting on it.
Who you callin' a goon, ya GOON?!?
**** just so you're aware.. i do know how to spell cadillac... the lettering on the painting i posted reads ca-DIE-lac because it's a hearse.. a funeral car... just a play on words.... i already got one PM about it... so i figure there's a few more that missed my intent....
Bo.. i'm sure somebody will let him know you're shouting out... last week i had one for Kirk jones.. he was on the show board lickedy split!
Some shirts & sticker logos I've been working on:
Heres a few pencil and marker drawings.
Lol your a goon you goon your lucky your my pal rob,jk
Nate loving the work super sexy..
and the darth vader helmet is priceless!
thanks guys for all the awesome feeback..
I know art tastes are very personal, but just wanted to compliment your work. The graphic appeal (particularly of the first two) is fantastic. I'm headed to your website next.
Good to see you on here finally DD! Great work as always, hey Denise very kool stuff keeps spilling from your mind. I still love your kustom cars!
Some nice work here gang.
I posted this very late last week and shortly after the show as pulled to, understandably, reduce traffic on the H.A.M.B. So, if you will indulge me a bit, I re-present the latest in the overtly Off Topic, (with permission) continuing saga of what
was and is the hidden history of the BETA project...
(Note: all styling cues and similarities to real cars are intentional and are intended to
stereotype the designs of that era.)
I even envisioned a body style more in keeping with the intermediate sized 'Personal luxury Car's" long hood, short deck design theme. I opted for the more Riviera like styling with Ford like cues.
And here's the next one...
Wow, this flats racer got me to thinking about concept; If the original SoCal bellytank car was a discard from a WWII P-38 (correct?) what modern war implement would make for a lake-car?
Great work everybody.
54 caddy dash that i striped fo my contribution.
OK HAMB, I haven't posted in awhile (been hiding at motorburg) and trying to rehab a busted shoulderblade.
First off; I'm pointing at these artists:
• D.D. Mae - Welcome!
• NateGreco - "Yay Pinup Grrlz"
• ToyGhoul - "Frankenstein"
• Doll Kustom - "CaDieLac
Second; Number 20 in my Drag B'Rods™ series titled, "Yank Chute Now!":
• I did a step-by-step on motorburg, just click this
• Have a great weekend everybody!
Does this count? I call it "DeToNaTiOn!"... 15 coats of nitrocellulose lacquer over a hand-made honduran mahogany body with tortoise-bound figured maple headcap and fretboard, gotta rub it out this weekend and assemble... I've got a matching 8w vacuum tube amp in the works for it built from the same mahogany/maple with a keyed ignition switch for an on/stby switch too.
Kustom helmet I designed and painted for a friend that races at Portland Int. Speedway. Layed out in 1-Shot with a Mack 000.
Chris... thanks sweetie..i'm glad you were also one of the ones to twist my arm to come back to the hamb!!!
