it's a photo, you know that right? not a drawing or CG.
Great stuff as usual. Love the streamliner on the salt flat (even though it frustrates me that that place is so far away). Hotrd32 - are those pinhole photos? They've got a great feel. Good to see someone else having a go at the watercolours. I can recommend the waterbrushes by pentel. They hold the water in the handle so you don't have to balance pots of water - great when you're out and about. All of my watercolours have been done with one of those and a tiny Winsor & Newton palette.
Haven't done much drawing this week but did get a chance to do a very quick one of this dragster at a local car show...
Dan, thanks man, much appreciated. You have posted some great photos again this week and I really like the treatment on them, especially this one:
Actually, it is not a photo in the true sense of the word.
Based on a photo... yes... but hardly a true photo.
A lot of work went into creating that picture beyond taking a photo.
Another Friday and I've got a little bit a' pinstriping to show!
Latest Newsreel: BLACK BANDITO
Are you using a wood lathe and wood cutting tools?
Did these last year on the doors of my buddy's t-bucket for his wedding present.
My 4 year old grand son and I was setting here looking at the Friday art show, when he seen your work and said "STOP I like that one, it's cool I need that for my room grandpa, get it for me"
Fantastic work everyone
New logo for my website...
Lettering I did on an old Mustang tank.
Hey, looks sharp, I designed that for Jimmy Flintstone.
You've really "got wood" on this one! Nice work.
Yes they are, thanks
Hotrd32 - are those pinhole photos? They've got a great feel.
As always, amazing work by everyone....
I've finally dragged myself into this centry & got a fancy ass DROID phone, it has a cool camera application on it, coupled with the 5mp resolution, it makes for some cool pictures.
Spent last Sunday with my club brothers wrenching on Ray's caddy....and maybe having a drink...or 5
And a couple from the point n shoot....
What to do when you have a head off the motor...
Great Stuff as Usual guys! Ive got a few things this week, one slightly OT & the other is Hats I did for Jerry Walker a Design by Keven Carter.
Next is a SEABEE design for a Vietnam Vet Going to a Reunion this weekend. The Design ended up at 127,000 stitches/6 hours sewing, 14 inches x 18 inches tall with the Seabees lettering Arched above and CMBU 302, NAVCAT Teams, Vietnam '70-'71 below. The design was so big that it had to be hooped twice. I worked from a 1965 waterslide decal that I found on line for the colors.
Keep it up guys!
LOWCAB = Infuckincredible Stuff.
Pontiacres - Nice Seabees! The attention to detail on that is out of this world!
@ Pontiacres Ranch:
The detail on that SeaBees-piece is amazing!
Thanks for sharing.

Great show this week guys,This is what I was able to crank out for the week...
Very cool...would have loved to have printed this job...
@ Hotrd32: That 1st pic with the guy looking over his shoulder is really great. I'd like to imagine that this is how it was back then...
@ Dutch Courage: Your work is as always top notch. Attention to detail is almost scary. Clean yet authentic.
@ Johnny Jalopy: Nice Batmo-rod idea! Somebody out there just HAS to build it now...
@ Lowcab: Been following your paintings for some time now... Nice!
@ Katzenhammer: Love that clean hotrod and that tattooish design Marx did is very cool...
@ po'boy: Love your striping on the guitar. Definately something else!
@ jwhitey: That's a cool idea! Made me smile...
@ Britt8m: You've got guts to post a bug on here, but I love it!
@ Notrod13: That pic is absolutely out of this world...
@ timebombcustoms: WOW! just ...wow...
Haven't posted here for a long time. I still haven't drawn a car of any sort lately, but I think these'll fit right in:
^ RustRocket Deluxe - t-shirt design for one of my favorite forums: ratrodbikes.com
I did this some time ago but it finaly made it to the printers this week. (I didn't do the url-type though...)
^ Wild at Heart. Acrylics (50x100cm) A painting I did for the Wild at Heart-show in Rotterdam (Holland) a few months ago. I know: No wheels at all, but it does feature some sort of tradtional flamejob ;-)
Great show guys. Glad to be part of it again.
Cool! I have a couple more to do and I did this one last year....
Great logo - I like it!!
For those who didn't look at the Bob K thread. Rising Sun on the salt.
Great show folks. Just amazing work.
I finally have some stuff to post for the show this week.
First up is a skateboard deck I painted for a benefit auction for one of the guys over on Volksrods that was in a bad car accident. All 1-shot by brush...
and then a cooler I striped for a buddy of mine....
and finally some HAMB friendly 'toons I did for the kid's coloring contest that we hold every year at the Cruzin the Park car show in Michigan this weekend...
and the cover art...
Here is my contribution..Just some of my sortof recent work..been a dry summer for creativity..Christopher Zelasko...Newbie..
I am a newbie. Hope this worked.
Hope this qualifies as art. Bought this Ideal 55 cooler at a garage sale for $20, rewired it, cleaned up, and painted. I has a bottle opener that said "Lucky Club" on it, so I designed a logo, and made some stickers. By the way, it works awesome, so I'm getting rid of the shop fridge, and using this for my beer.
lookin awesome guys makin me feel bad for not having anything to post!
