Happy Friday ......Guess I'll kick it off this week.

Lordz of Kustomz Mercury, shot a few days ago.
Here's a sneek-peek of my next painting, I think oils this time (16 x 20)
Newest. Oil on Canvas...
Bad ass photo!
Posted the studies for these awhile back....here's one of the finished products.."Old Masters" series...."Old Masters"... of our passion
(signature not on original)
Dig it Hotrd32! Dig it man!
Thank you, that shot of the Merc is outstanding!
Would be awesome if you did a step-by-step! I am trying to learn how to paint with acrylics and oils - it ain't easy!
Spreading the word again,check these out........
Ive missed a couple of weeks.....but have been shooting everyday
Not sure if I already posted this Willys Gasser T-shirt for Cowtown Speed Shop?
Awesome shots John!
Well...it has a car part in there...I welded it up as a tool actually, to flail at the damnable blackberry vines. Turns out it just snags them and drags them all over my stupid self as I scream like a little girl and run for the first aid kit....Oh well, it sure looks cool hangin' on the shop wall!
The welds are ugly to fit the look. I had the bad guys from the scifi series Firefly in mind. It looks like something the insane space baddies would cobble together.
So far so great! Bob I love that cruizin scene! Here's what I've been working on lately... "Back to the Kulture"
I really loved the 3rd Back to the Future where the Delorean had a set of red steelies and whitewalls.....1850's so this is Hamb friendly...haha
that merc is so stunning it hurts me to know it's never gona be mine!!!!
Wow..your photos are over the top John!!!
Hope I'm not going overboard wit dis one... I had a good friend of mine down in Fla. draw me up a picture of what a new pony would look like if it were done up as a "gasser"... And this is what he came up with.... Thank you Don!!!
Heres some welding hoods flaked,kandied,&striped & a bowling pin for a Stray
Awesome start guys!
Couple point & shoots from me...

Speaking of Cowtown, Here are a few of the designs I did as show t-shirt vendor for the late, lamented Cowtown Nationals in Kansas City, which ran from 1980-1994.
This one was airbrushed, reproduced as an offset-printed trasnsfer.
Line art for screenprint.
Airbrushed mockup for screenprint design
one that i sold at this last Billetproof Fl..johnny
i risk getting caught on the internet at work on fridays so i can look at the friday art show....nice stuff
Same here! But it's worth the risk.
Thanks to all who post, I really look forward to these Friday Art Shows; nice arrivals this morning, as usual.
Erixon: interesting work. Very Regionalistic.
Here are a few older one's.
Here are a few things that I have been working on. I have sculpted all of these by hand, made my own molds, cast them in resin and painted them up. Hope you like the finished product.
Here are the first 2 in my artist series. Artist series will include hand strung hemp stitching on the shift knobs, custom paint colors and a glass dome display for showing them off. Regular all resin versions will follow soon for functional shift knobs.
The next is more of a sculpt than a knob.
Flying Pie - i found a cool wall sconce to mount this one on and painted it up to match.
Last but not least is my Zombie hand shift knob. This evolved out of a phone conversation with Jason of Timebomb Kustoms. Still needs a couple of finishing touches like its display dome and base painted. I will post pics in a few weeks once it is finished and under glass. This can be used as a shift knob or as desk art.
Thank you Slim!! Gotta give a BIG thanks to the artist that drew that up for me.. Don Garrett! He also a member of our "scale motor cars" model car site..
Good week so far, hoping to finish up my cross for torque fest and get it in the mail asap. I will post pics later today hopefully.
