Greetings to all. My name is Alex, 25 years old, and I was born and raised in Northern Colorado. Although I didnt grow up around hot rods, I chose early in life to make them my passion. In particular traditional hot rods and customs. I taught myself how to weld when I was 16 (when I saved up enough money to buy a welder) and the same goes for painting, bodywork, and fabrication. Dont get me wrong, I screwed a lot of thing up learning on my own, but I love to learn new things on my own if I can. Its crazy what you can learn by reading books and magazines. But above everything else, I am an artist. I have been since I first picked up a pencil. I studied printmaking at the University of Northern Colorado and it is my favorite media to work in. My main subjects in my art are... you guessed it.... traditional hot rods and customs. I will post some of my work soon. Please check out my website and let me know what you think of my work www.oldschoolalex.com. Thanks everyone and I am glad I am apart of this community now. I know the amount of knowledge that roams these pages is unmatched. I hope to learn a lot of new things from you all.
