my mother would point out at least ten places on your sculpture I could hurt myself, therefore, I love it...
Not really that artsy but I'll play along
Thanks guys, I seem to have a knack for building sharp objects! The thing hanging over the fish head is actually and engine valve from an airplane motor. We drilled it out in the lathe to make it slip over the shaft, in doing so it caught fire because it was sodium filled! Awesome!
Amazing idea... that you basically put just one cut into such a simple shape, that blue cylinder, and that cut "revealed" the two basic shapes needed for a car body absolutely floored me. Very, very cool. Gary
BOP-Nut, ct1932ford, thank you guys, much appreciated ........
my offering to :thee inland emperors
That is one seriously fantastic custom!
Here's mine for this week. The stock car scene from '70 was just finished a couple of days ago. (water colors)
Dan, good to see you here, your stuff still rocks as always! Do you have prints of that last one (the yellow sprinter/midget) available?
Jen, really liked the sign, either someone has an eye for color, and how they work together, or they don't....you have the color eye.... but when I clicked the photo, and saw the variegated foil work on the helmet....well....to me, that was badass...foil work like that just screams drag racing to me....and anyone that screams drag racing is a friend
Amazing work, everyone! Inspirational for sure!
Friends keg fridge i did this week. Started it six years ago. Need to fix that old stuff now.
I love this one. Reminds me of Jim Phillips' skateboard/surf art!
My friend is building a 37 Dodge gasser. He is going to leave the body the way he found it and just focus on the performance. Did a little drawing for him (oh yeah, his last name is Moore, for the spelling)
Amazing work everyone! Here's my contribution. Enjoy the weekend,Brad
Ok I drew a picture of a car this time

Fantastic work everyone! Here is my humble contribution. I did this sign for a buddy who put his F.E.D. in a local indoor show last weekend.
The yellow Vic was chopped, channeled, nosed & decked into the green example. In 3d of course. I had shown it here last year i guess, but added (or removed) some tidbits. Here's another render:
Its been a rough couple weeks! Heres a tribute to my Dad. He was one of the greatest body men in the valley.
Make every day count!
