Great stuff, I start every Friday checking this out. So cool. Here are a couple shots..
Bomonster. great shot of Tom. Ive known Tom for quite a few years, great guy. Dig your rendering of Franco in his shoebox. Todd.........bitchin work as always. Heres a couple from me. New t-shirt design, poster for Gambinos Sit-down, and my tribute to Roth 'n Dutch called "Big Daddy Ken"
Awesome start so far guys! It's great to get back into the swing...here's my art swap for Zombie... a few weeks ago he drew me up a sick 57 Nomad Gasser...so this is what I owe him. Thanks Z and I hope you guys dig it!
One I've been playing with....
really nice work this week!!!! ive been burnt out on art since art college and havent picked up a brush in years. i really admire all of you guys who post new things up every week. for the past few days ive been going thru the art sections here and slowly feeling that spark come back....so much so that last night i blew the dust off of my pencil to sketch something on illustration board for the first time in years.maybe one day i will have a nice polished piece to post up here. wrapped around my small studio walls are prints from weesner, von franko and robert williams for motivation. you guys who post here dont understand what it means to a guy like me lurking in the shadows every friday to try and get that spark back for me. one day id like to feel the same thing bombster felt when he set up with the big boys of lowbrow. again thank you to all who post on here...it means alot
Nate you are insane! Awsome!
Mark, being an old Rambler guy, I really like your Marlin.
WOW, your daughter has so much talent, and at such a young age. I'm just blown away.
X2 , very nice
Good work folks
Cool stuff here today. Dig those bikes Todd.
This one's been around for a while but I've always liked it.
This caught my eye. I'm a big fan of Dali's art. What a great talent your daughter has. Please encourage her to continue to draw (anything!!!) and not waste this artistic gift.
I finished up this beer fridge for our local biker club. It was raffled off last weekend during their annual rally. So I started in on this beanie helmet for another biker
Found some of my drawings from the 70's will post over the next few weeks! You will see some I had to trim the paper it was so bad. Anyway hope they are good enough for the show.
Great show, per usual.
This art is not mine, but I was fortunate to come across it.
First, I believe this to be a Norm Grabowsky hand carved shift knob. I wasn't able to verify with the owner.
In the current issue of "Rod & Custom" (August 2011) there's a great cover piece on the Starlite Rod & Kustom shop with fantastic photographs by Tim Sutton, a participant in these Friday Art Shows.
Here's a couple photos of the shop truck, "El Durti Martini" mentioned in the article but not shown. I caught it last year at the Good Guys Orange County show.
Have a great weekend!

Awesome work this week as usual, Fridays rule here on the HAMB
A box I did for our Local Show this weekend "Hard Luck Award"
Nice show! Great work everyone! Here's a couple of shots more.
Smart piece Martin!
Thanks Glenn. I'm going to tweak and repost it in a bit.
I'm with the rest of them.... great drawing! Keep pushing her. My 15 year old daughter is the one who' s got a pencil as her 6th digit on her right hand.
I've tied to get here to draw something for the HAMB as she also likes old cars
but she won't budge. Yet. Also, when not drawing, she's writing or practicing one of 3 musical instruments... way ahead of me at that age.
Jimmy, great stuff....thanks!!
hahah!! lots of fun in there!!
Heres a few shots of the kreepy hand that i posted this morn... i finished it up this morn..
Dart165, I love that drawing, great job!
Everything else looks great too! Jamey, you can definitely operate a bead roller like no one else!
Here's a trophy I built for a show in Woodland Hills California tomorrow.
Super inspired by everything here! Attached is a sketch I worked up last night. Happy Friday everyone!
Keep going! It's looking good!
Thanks Robbie the thophy is dope... hows the knee???
Excellent TTV work... I cheat and use PShotoshop.
For a no talent bum like me to see talent like yours not being used is a shame. You have the talent use it. Nice start, thanks for posting. To all the other artists GREAT SHOW!!!
Dash for one of the summer rides for a local bike shop, yet to be cleared. Only the lettering is my work.
Dynamite start on the FAS.
