    cool show thus far! here's two knobs i finished over the last two weeks. the first is a pretty nice cholo loco lowrider. mi impala needs one of these i think. watched blues brothers the other day and damned if it doesn't look like cab calloway's character too, what with his hat worn lower than jake and elwood. hat ribbon is all there and has a little feather sticking out of it like most hats did.

    second knob is the late WWI german. i kinda wanted to do one in this vein, but really don't want to do anything nazi... this helmet originated the style that would become the evil nazi icon in WWII. fully detailed, has the liner and chinstrap rivets, as well as the two frankenstein looking lugs up top. these were vents, but stuck out to mount a piece of forehead armor upon to protect from sniping in the trenches.

    helmet debuted in 1916 and was made until 1918. i have one that was painted silver when i got it and had an original in-the-trench painted camo pattern under the silver. scuffed it and found the pattern after i saw the telltale colors through some cracks in the silver. in-trench painted helmets were painted by those with some artistic experience or brush time, and didn't follow the specific patterns used by factories, and mine had an iron cross painted on its crown.

    last pic is a sneak peak of THE BEST SHIFTER KNOB EVER in progress.

    all of these are in wax and await mold making and aluminum casting.

    zee german. the M1916 "stalhelms" differ from the WWII helmets in that they are taller, have the lugs for the armor plate, and have a longer bill out front.

    Nice work chromed rat are you gonna try to cast them in resin. If ya need any advice on casting them shoot me pm some of the under cuts in em might make them a little difficult to do but as always theres always a way to do it it will just have to be multi peice mold.

    Another fine art show this week guys...it never ceases to amaze me.

    Here's a couple things I did earlier this week.

    4" Husker Fink on a wiper motor cover for Don Beason's 54 Buick. Really slick car that I hope to putting some lines on soon.

    Dad's the KKOA Kansas Rep and this is for him to present to the owner of the car he digs most at KKOA this weekend.

    My lettering is still pretty weak in general but slowly getting better. Dad loved it so that's good enough for me.

    NOT my art...
    but these paintings of the Old Custom Car shops are made by Mike Scott aka The Striper from Florida's Murphy & the Striper.

    He started out by doing a series on the Barris customs all parked in front of the Barris Shop with different signs/differnt years.

    His lates work is from the Alexander Brothers and Darryl Starbird. And The Hartford Armory AUTORAMA 1959. Currently he is working on paintings of the Gene Winfield shop, Joe Bailon and Bill Chusenberry.

    I have 11x17 prints of all of these and they are really fun to look at. Each time I look I see new things and little details I had overlooked before.

    More info on these prints can be found on my website:

    And Murphy & the Striper are ofcoars best known for the restoration of the Cushenberry "El Matador" so Mike made a great painting of that as well.

    This guy, I didn't care for the IFS on it, but couldn't deny it was a cool car, maybe because this guy was out there working it like no other in the burnout box.

    And when deviantart quits being the messed up site it is, this picture will be online:

    Wow the things you guy's have done are amazing, i wish i could draw and paint as good as y'all, and since i can't i've got a project for who ever wants to do it. I have a '60 effie i have to part with and i never got to do anything with it, and i would like to know if some one could to a custom rendering of it. maybe style it like you would a 49-51 merc or shoe box, low, chopped, pan caked hood, cool wheels, peep mirrors, and a heavy flake paint job, and what ever else you think is cool. here's a pic of it now, pretty sad lookin'.

    i do cast multiples of most everything. i just sculpt in "victory brown" wax because it holds its form in small scale better than clay. plastilina clay absorbs heat thoroughly and quickly which makes it too soft to sculpt without distorting the whole piece. makes it convenient for doing one offs on occasion though, as i can just make the ceramic mold and cast it. for a piece i'll make duplicates of, i make a rubber mold to cast duplicate waxes from casting wax and use those to go thru the whole process. probably make some molds this week, actually.
