Only time there is to much salt is when you are cookin! Rockin salty stuff kids. Jen the curve is awesome. That white Riv is over the top cool. Love the big sss grain bins in the background D.G. Thanx you all ~sololobo~
Just a simple Spalted Birch Wood Skull this week
Oh man, That would look good as a shifter knob in my truck. I really like the way that wood turned out.
Here's my inside fender of my 49' ford....waiting on parts to put the front back together and got bored
Good Lord Jeff, these three kick ass.
Really nice FAS, everybody! Here are a couple of Buick water colors I finished recently...
I can taste the salt!!!
"The Souped Up Coupe"
"The Fastest Fish In The World"
"Alex Xydias and the So-Cal Streamliner"
I LOVE your new watermark, Ed!
Great show everyone. I found a customcory shop floor scrap. It relates to the floor scrap I found from last week
Last weeks floor scrap.
I will produce this TIKI-totem to be used in the X-treme car show Helsinki next month. The height will be approximately 90''. The material for this 2-sided item will be 1,5'' Viscom-board.
Thanks guys..a great show!
Great stuff everyone... I dont have anything new this week anyone here wants to see, but I did find a box of some lost old stuff a few weeks ago... so, here's an oldie in the theme of Bonneville.. some concept art I did for Winfield several years ago.
i wanna go fast
photography not art
still not art but an offering...
Not up to the par of so many of the true artists on here but one of my favorite captures from the KKOA Leadsled Spectacular Run What Ya Brung Drags.
Thanks for all of the inspiration, this thread is FANTASTIC as always!
close but no art
Haven't posted anything in a long time, but I got salt fever, so heres a before, and after I did a while ago. Looks like I'll be missing it again this year. gave it a shot though. Always next year.
Great show this week! It's been months since I've had the opportunity to get back on here and be involved! I've been away building an empire of apparel, skateboards, and cornhole board designs...it has taken up all of my free time but anytime I have some car culture related art I will be bringing it back here! Keep up the awesome work as always guys and gals!
Another one out of the park! Spalted Birch is a great wood to work with anyway and your designs bring out the best in everything....Amazing.
So it's all about salt, eh? Some of my past work......
That is so cool.
Thanks for the new screen wallpaper
Awesome show folks.
I have some old, some new to add to the salt...
Atleast your stuff fits the theme...
And no need to ever apologize, certainly not to me, anyway - I never tire of lapping up the eye candy on the FAS. Great show this week.
You know I love you Tim...... And love sarcasim too.... And after 3 pokes at art, your right... Those are beatuful photos
Finished up the design for Firebird Race Way and it was printed by our very own OddRodGarage.
Great show again guys!
I feel I need to clarify what I posted late last week. First and foremost, photography IS an artform! F-stop settings and depth of field settings on cameras are black magic and voodoo to me. I assume non pencil-and-paper artist wonder how we decide what color to use, or how we come up with our poses or light sources. I have no problem with people taking their own photos and tweeking them or adjusting them.
I do have a problem with people making photo collages ( usually using other peoples photos ), tweeking them with photoshop filters and adjustment sliders, and then passing it off as an original. Whether you allude to the piece being an original, or if you don't correct other people when they think it is, it's not right.
Making photo collages, to me, is like putting bumper stickers on your car. It's doing something visual, but it's not art. Especially if you didn't take the photos in the first place.
Computers are tools, not unlike an airbrush, a camera, or an oval template. Typing keys on a keyboard does not make you an artist.
Again, I know this idea may not be popular, because most people don't want to put the incredible amount of time or work in to be a good artist or photographer. That's what I think.
Nice shirt, JJ! You and ORG make a great team!
First timer here. Here are some cool door prizes given out at the Open Wheel Picnic a week ago,and one that I made.
