Cool Stuff Guys!!!
This "35 Ford Roadster Custom" original sketch will be one of the pieces offered by the SEMA Care Silent Auction...
Here is my on Topic contribution for this week.
R.I.P mister mormowski.
I was going to try and find a pic of this and post it- forgot that Doc has it now! Pretty early piece, I was just getting going painting then, '95 or '96 maybe? I arranged for Norm to sell prints of this back when he hurt his hand to help with his medical bills, kind of weird that the hand is stitched on in the picture. I made him a Frankenstein monster in the painting because when I was a little kid I thought that's what he looked like in the old LIFE Magazine photo.
He was a role model of how to not take life too seriously that few of us can measure up to- Gonna miss him...
My "Wild Turkey" Skull by Norm.................
Well, I'm working on a small Norm bit of artwork and may have it done soon to get in this show but it may have to be in next weeks show. This is one from this week that I did get done with. 20"X24" Acrylic.
I'll throw in a small tribute to Norm with one of my favourite pics taken on Norm's UK visit.
Norm discovers he wasn't the first to carve a skull........
The pic was taken in August 2006 at the 'Royal Standard of England' one of the oldest pub's we have here. Beer has been served there for 900 years so Norm was quite at home....

Thanx Norm would dig it ~sololobo~
Since some of you know I do hand painted woodgrain, I thought I'd toss up a few examples. Not Norm related, unless an individual art form applies. His was clearly individual. Enjoy...
I love the "FrankenNorm". Norm was excited to see it at my Christmas party. He signed the back for me. This and Cherry Pie are my most favorite of Weezie's work.
Cool, thanks. I like that version too.
I wish I could show what I did. you will just have to look for it on the news stand....
Rest in peace norm
Fantastic woodgrain, Highlander - Sure looks dead nuts real to me. I sure would love to watch you work on that some time. Beautiful stuff - by far the nicest I have seen!
Holy smokes Doc., I knew you had a great collection of all sorts of art, didn't realize you had that many Norm Skulls. Wow, awesome.
I Never met him but was really inspired by the man. Looking at pics of him in this thread and on one of those pics he appears to me like the sun...
so I quickly did this... Sun will never be the same...
sorry its a repost but i figured it would fit well this week
Thanks bro. You're welcome to drop over on the next one. Some time between now and xmas I'll be doing a 33 Packard limo set in "Butt Walunut" with the standard elm trim. Something like 13-14 parts to that one
For those who don't already know, I do this with brushes. No hydro, no rollers, no decals, no silk screens. If I showed you the burl brush you'd call me a liar...until you watched it happen.
Hey Doc, one heck of a collection...I was fortunate enough to see a lot of your stuff "in the works" while visiting Norm at various times over the years. Here's a shot of the infamous walnut "trunk" or "box" that he built in late '74 or early '75 for my 32 Studebaker President...funny note: No one remembers me or the car, but always say "yeah I know that car - it's the one with the box on the back"! Also my two skulls and cane....He was a helluva craftsman and will be sorely missed........RIP old friend, Joe
This is why I couldn't be a graphic artist.....another deadline I couldn't beat....
Here's what I did get done (reference image shown by someone else above):
Great job, some people just have TOO much talent!!
...around here - I feel like an "also ran".
Thanks for the hat tip nonetheless....I loved Norm. Never saw a picture with him in it that didn't make me smile. There are very few people in the world with that kind of charisma.
Awesome show so far, guys!
I really wanted to do something Norm related this week, but time just got away on me.
So, the best I could do was drag out this old piece I drew up about 12 years back when I was showing my Norm 'tribute' T-bucket. It's a board I made up like a fake magazine cover, incorporating other stuff I was doing at the time, or had planned for the future.
Marker, acrylic, and vinyl on board.
....at least it's got Norm's name on it!
RIP Mr. Grabowski
nice stuff everyone....an old one from me....
- T'was cool meeting you at 'Chopped' Weez. This Norm piece is bitchin +.
Putting this in the show ..
Radical stuff ...........,
Is that the same 58 Caddy that has the carburetor gasket issue
