    Ya know you guys with all this talent just make me sick :mad: I can't even draw a good stick figure person and here you guys do all this unbelievably cool art week after week. That's just not fair:D

    Seriously ... I want to thank each one of you for contributing to one of the best weekly posts on the HAMB. I look forward to this each week and am constantly amazed at the talent here. Hot Rod art is such a key part of what all of us enjoy. You guys rule!! Thanks for 52 weeks of cool art.

    I asked Dave and he said he made it. He took a regular brush and a razor blade and cut around the edge till he had about 10 bristles left. He said he uses this one all the time.

    I am amazed at the talent that any artist has, and especially you all on this site.

    Jigger, your cards are of Hallmark quality. Too bad they do not ask you to do a segment for them.

    And Tingler, looking at yours takes me back to when I was a kid wanting to buy the cool shirts they used to sell in car magazines. In fact, they take me back so well, I think I will go beat up my brothers and sisters just like we used to do when we were young. Good being the oldest boy of 7 kids.

    You pinstriping geniouses, I still cannot see how you line those mirror images up or get all the lines to end up in the right place.

    And to think I used to pay no attention to art class teachers 'cause I never saw a reason for learning art!!!!

    Happy Holidays to you magnificent artists and your families!

    holy hell. Some of this stuff is unreal. Anyway, new guy here, some friends said there was some great artwork shown here on fridays and they weren't kidding! so I figured I'd humbly drop some of my stuff.

    Your artwork is amazing. Do an intro in the intro section and tell us alittle about yourself. I'm very interested to know if your artwork is used for these resin like casts of cars I've seen that look EXACTLY like your artwork, about 8 inches square cars, very heavy when you hold them, mostly tuners. I've seen them at finer gift shops and almost bought a very cool looking '70's VW bus. Were your renderings used by chance for theses?

    Thanks! and Nope, those aren't mine but I know what you're talking about. I actually hadn't ever seen them until I stopped by a car museum while on vacation last weekend. Think this is the spot?

    Got Zach to paint that for my dad, the sign holder is from the 40's or 50's... but we never had an insert... Dad's been talking for a while about painting an insert ourselves or getting zach to do one...

    Thanks buddy, it looks great! Dad will be very happy...

    Amazing stuff as usual. Was flicking through a mag while having dinner the other day and found a feature on Tingler's art - it inspired me to try a quick scribble and see if i could come up with anything. This was the result, although it took a few goes at getting anything faintly like a face. Sorry if it brings the standards down to earth like a sack of spuds - I should probably stick to bashing bits of metal about!

    couldnt resist messing up the 3 window with some old lettering. (looks much better in person) - it'll be sanded off soon for fresh shiny new paint.
    the car sits here at the shop, cant wait for some dork to say: ooooh this is where the old outlaw ended up. i used to watch that car run B/GAS at the strip. HAAAAAAAA!
