Well this is the MOTEL sign I talked about last week.
Well, finally done. About 38" wide. Based on the Vagabond Motel sign in Fresno.
Hope this isn't too OT. Just think of it as something Route 66ish.
Boss said he was doin' it one more time, and this time it was my turn...
I begged Him and Sue to let me use this shot.
Andy didn't really care for the idea of his image on the design, he's pretty low key. One of the Nicest, most humble, giving people I have ever known...this isn't A$$ kissing either. ANYBODY who has met Andy will tell you the same. I said "pleeeease Andy, let me use this...you look like a superhero, it looks like you should be wearing a cape!" He knows I am weird, and after a pause (I assume to process my nearly incoherent rambling) he says "I don't know, let me ask a few people what they think."
Two days later Sue gives me the OK!
I believe it was another low key Hot Rod Legend that convinced him it was okay...Thank You Roy!!!
Thank you Terri for all of your help!
Love the shot of the single bike !
I am still learning photography -- so please excuse my lack of knowledge but I don't understand how you lit this shot.
The sun (or light) is coming from the right (or a bit behind) causing the shadows -- yet the front side side of the bike is perfectly lit - with no shadows behind the bike. Love this style and was just wondering if you would help me understand how you did it
Your work is simply amazing!
Jigger the dreamer ia awsooome!
As always....some nice stuff!
Mark, while I really like the first sketch, Blue Coupe ( go figure...) " Dreamer " is very very cool. I would have a hard time figuring which one to vote for
Awesome detail and everything else! Welcome to FAS.
Definitely my choice of the three - love it!!

Dreamer is the great one!
Some my new stuff...
16"x20" acrylic on canvas. This will be for sale at the Detroit Autorama. I should also have a limited number (25-50) of prints available. Stop by and say hello if you're going to be there!
I'm having one those crazy, busy OT weeks where I'm too busy to open the mail, kiss the wife, change my shirt, check the HAMB. Then I open the FAS and dig on the entries like the kssmyss ninja star-wheeled dragster, taylorcrawford's gold and white stripes, 49 buick's wolcott relflector shot, dan greenberg's alex gambino chevy pic, lowcab's route 66 motel sign, and many others from the talent-filled regulars and newcomers and it keeps me coming back for more and wanting to be better. Bernie: You should paint your photo of the painting on the wall. Nice still life. BO
Good work guys Here's a few from the end of last year, Barris came over the the UK for a show and was reunited with a few of his old cars. He put the masking up on the Merc to show how he would chop it.

Not 100% sure this is HAMB friendly but it's what I have been working on this week for a shirt print.
Thank you Ken!
