New "old" sign for my buddies chopper shop...

So this is something a little different. I distressed a panel and the pinstriping but I left the gold leaf shiny and nice. It adds some cool texture...Hope you like it Tony!

A panel for the talented miss Shelby Johnson...(aka SHMAJO)

This is a panel I did as a trade with fellow artist Shelby Johnson also known as Shmajo. I did some grind work on an aluminum panel and then did a rainbow effect using House of Kolor candies. For the lettering I used green varigated gold leaf and for the stripes I used a custom mix of lime green and light blue.
Thanks for looking!

Two really cool bikes...

I have been busy as of lately and haven't updated this as much as I should but here are some of my most recent jobs...the Black metric chopper was built by Tony Colluci of Colluci Customs and features Rose Pink and Baby Blue stripes and the Honda Goldwing trike belongs to Dave Davis, a retired military vet that I have a tremendous amount of respect for. They were both super fun jobs to do and I appreciate both...and for good measure I included a picture of my beautiful daughter Lailah having a blast with Skip a Sock whom she LOVES! Thanks for perusing my ramblings! :)
