A bubble custom based on a 1961 Corvette.
Howdy, been busy...
Had this unsold painting hangin' around that I painted at Naracoorte Swap in '13. A stock '75 Alfa Romeo with ugly 5mph bumpers.
Went to English Workingmen's Club for their KK style car park toy rally for Children's Hospital. Sat in the show and proceeded to give this unloved painting a workover. About an hour later, I gave this work to the kids.
Hope a lil' future hotrodder digs this 12x16" piece.
Drew Marlene too. She gave me $10.00 and a wild handmade punk- style sleeveless top, stitched with plastic tube. Bitchin'.
Some photos from Cruzin to Colby in downtown Everett over the holiday weekend put into a framed format.
Nice work Bob!

Jokem, I dig the way you presented these shots and I really like "Gangreen".
Here's a Southern hemisphere Winter sunset pic I took two hours ago, with my cheap ass phone, and then screwed with it in the phones edit program.

My 32 5/W @ Lime Rock Park, Ct.,this past Sunday.
Awesome start to another FAS! Everyone is knockin' it out of the park.
When home computers came around in the early 80's, it was an eye opener. There was so much stuff to experiment with and learn, but that programming stuff was not for us. (Too late for our older minds at the time) But, writing, typing, designing, all came to a method that was a little easier than using a Royal Typewriter and an old art book.
Did the IBM and Apple Computers change the way we looked at things? Yes, did it change the ability of the artist? No. Photographs became easier to clear up, compose, and fix. Writing stories and concise notes became a daily habit. But computer art design was not in our blood.
It will always remain an impressive feat that there are some that can draw things. Whether it is cars, planes, people, etc. That ability is something to be admired. Creativity will always be there, but actual drawing art will be a step back, for me.
Drawings started as simple chicken scratches on my Pee Chee notebook during those slow, boring, lectures in junior high school... to drawings in the borders of college notes, in equally boring and longer classes.
First attempt at computerized drawing based on a Carson Top Ford convertible late 1990's as PC computer programs made it a little easier to use for the everyday person.
I started this one this morning. I liked going to the jalopy races as a kid. S3 was my favorite car. Thanks for all your art this week.

As always Great work gentlemen!
Although I don’t participate much, viewing the Friday Art Show has become an favorite and looked forward to weekly routine for me. Thanks all for making Friday’s better!
Perhaps too new and musclely I just don’t get many opportunities to draw cars nowadays and thought I’d share...
Tee shirt art for the Mustang Club of Central Iowa’s annual show this Sunday.
Thanks Rusty...don't think I need to tell ya how I feel about your stuff.......way cool, and makes me envious.
Rusty...being a pipefitter by trade, your plumbers truck cracks me up, specially the flattened pipe strap screwed to the front fender and the way shits just bolted to the body wherever it can be....I think that's what makes your stuff so cool is the details are so true to life.
