Happy New Year everyone and wishing you all the best in 2015..........
Wow! A New South Wales '32 Vauxhall ^.. that's different Bob, I like it (traditional Holden front end too..)
I gotta first w.i.p. sketch;
-Happy New Year-
Season's Greetings to you all!
Here's a few from The World's first Hot Rod Show in Whangamata...
Nice work Bob, Cruisen and Spoggie. I never up this late, but I have Friday off.
One of yesterday's/today's sketchbook marathon on crappy paper. The car is called a "Marion".
^ Bitchin'. More, encore.
Shit man, I bet it's cold in Milwaukee. The hills are up in flames here, 110+°
Happy New Year HAMBers!
My buddy Gonk did this for the coming Muscle Car Madness car shows 25th anniversary.
Both cars pictured are coming down for the show.
Sorry for crappy phone pic.
Nice work, Bob, Spoggie, Crusin', Beebing, Frogz, KiwiJeff.
Great work guys. Love Fridays.
...a few old Chevies...
Subject matter may be slightly OT, but still car art. This has been hanging on the wall in my "work/storage room" forever. Painted this back in the early 70s during my pop art comic strip phase. 24" x 24" acrylic on canvas. Stretched the canvas myself and made my own shadow frame.
Yeah Spoggie, it's colder than a Witches...
I've been to Perth a few times in July, which is your winter down under, mild compared to here.
Hey, is this a cool site or what? you never know what or who you might find exploring.
Yesterday, I was checking out this neat thread,
INSPIRED BY ED ROTH, PLOWBOY AND RACERDAD.
A very talented metal fabricator named Dan Stevens (member name Steelsmith). He mentioned his older brother the creator of "Rocketeer", none other than Dave Stevens!
I thought this Dave Stevens Art would be appropriate for the FAS. Unfortunately, Dave has passed away from leukemia in 2008. Talent runs in the family and Dan Stevens is equally talented artist in metal work.
57 Corvette ~ Bob: She's sweet Bob... love the car too! Very cool! I wondered a bit 'til Spoggie clarified.
Spoggie: I dig "Middleton"! Baby sits cool and low... and I bet slow over the tracks p.s. Thanks for the link!
Cruisin': Love the angles and variations on a theme!
beebing: You did come in early; crappy paper worked well Sweet Marion marathon sketch! On the Stevens Art ... I want one of these; I'd take one of the space crafts too!
Frogz: Red Hot Tiki rolls low...and cold... and warms the heart!
kiwijeff: It's cool Gonk!
Wild Willy: Cool scene! American tradition and fun!
rustyl: Love the Chevs! Your art always makes me feel like goin' on a search and rescue mission... I'm goin after that '51 Styline first!
wojojo: She looks happy ...and 70's! Dig the comic art form!
I posted two of these last week, Franky and Grandpa. The other two are new for this week. I'm practicing on wood for possibly painting my son's Firehouse table here in Fremont. Gary

Happy New Year to all on the H.A.M.B.
Thank you, Ryan, for one of the coolest places on the Planet we call Earth!
Here's to a blessed and prosperous 2015, even if it aint so monetarily...
I'm posting retreads this week with a sneak peak at a partial on a project (GTO:1969) that I'm currently buried under. Should wrap today. There is a period correct Olds and wagon in this somewhere to make it qualify by osmosis if not in total theme.I'll throw up an old favorite with a doll so all will be forgiven…
Great work Bob! Spoggie! Cruisin' Frogz! Beeb(Marc), Wild Willy! Rusty1! Robber! Y'all 'er ROCKIN" Cats!
(I'll be back to check the rest!)
(These images are for H.A.M.B. eyes only, for now. I am in the process of coloring it and will be posting a Face Book Contest with the finished product. Hope-a you like-a!)
PS… no guesses...
Here's to your toast and you as well, Jigger!
P.S. I-a like-a!
When I see piles of heaps... it actually triggers piles of memories for me Thank you!
Happy Gnu Year, All
'55 gasser WIP.
Oops, who left the gate open? some goats got out. (Mark)
What's Gnu with ewe? Good ones Mr. Varin-Maeus!
Sorry I missed you, Wojojo-eu! I really like that rendering a lot, good job man.
Not Ba-a-a-a-a-a-a-d Marc. Nice strong sketch work there my friend. I guess I left the gate open. Between the Goats and the Gnu,
it's got me feeling a little sheepish.
Thanks Mark, I love your figure drawings.
