More hotrod porn

1932 Ford highboy. Finished the suspension and side corner panels. Right now just sketching in the driver and determining the setting. Just drawing a car wouldn't be enough since it has to have context. I am thinking possibly a desert road setting.

Bad Wolf Bomber Art Prototype Deck

This is another Bad Wolf. The first batch was used as tests to mount rivets and do different distressing methods. They were painted like how you weather a WWII era warplane model kit so those boards are a week away from being done and will be mind blowingly rad.

It was pulled from the cue to be offered as is and prestine. Imagine an airplane delivered fresh to a forward fighting unit and it's yet to be beaten to hell. So this is the pristine version.

About the Rivets:

The riveting is a precision alloy non-ferrous button-head 3/16 DD "fastner" used in aviation and were used in WWII(since the birth of aviation) and came from Boeing circa 1940's. These are precision drilled to match the convex of the board and are NOT held in with glue since I they were only drilled through 2.5" plys and are held like the originals by it's precision hole which the drill hole is .00-1,000th smaller. It wont ever come out. The board was printed white and is in a mixture of enamels and acrylics and cleared 3 times at various stages and was silkscreened then airbrushed and the hand painted.

A6M "Zero" profile prints

These were created in December to accompany a special Mustang deck we produced in a limited number. These measured 22"10" and came in two different variants with different markings depicting various times and operations during WWII.

Very limited and sold out.

Deadly Dame Pinup Poster

This was released as a skateboard deck 4 years ago however wasn't satisfied with it then so I decided to do a redux of the image and change it to a what-if WWII bomber pinup. After several test prints I decided on two variants.

There was only 2 made of the off blue background and faint yellow bones.

The final came - Classic Purple or - Classic Red

20" tall by 14" wide.

Mizz .45 Redux

The original image was done back in 2009. However I decided to refine the image by making the woman more exotic and added in the deathly wisp of gun smoke.

A sample of the original unpublished image.

Quality and coming through...

Over the holiday season some mail carriers damaged prints in transit and leaving my customers with a few crushed tubes, ruined prints and in this case the mail person just let the tube in the rain against a door. As my policy states I replace a print at my costs regardless if I had nothing to do with it. I don't believe in penalizing my customers for the fault of the U.S. Postal Service. To stoke the customer out I replaced the prints from my own collection.

Viel Prototype print

Limited to 3 pieces. 20"x 12". Reason to make only 3 was to just proof the image and see what it looked like in it's raw form. Singed and dated and numbered in a seres "P1" for prototype.

Hotrod project sample.

I've been working on an unnamed hotrod project for a month now. It's to be a Ford Highboy. I've 11 hours into already and suspect I have another 10.

Here is a sample to check out.

Regal Crow Pool Deck in Teal and Pink

This is a 33"x10" custom one of a kind prototype deck I did back in 2008. At the time I printed a handful of decks but at the time I just thought they where not right for release or seeking to make more then just a few. Yet it was fun printing various colorways which is part of the figuring it out process which leads up to the final release.

Ipod Kamikaze Death Punk Point Prototype

Here is a prototype deck I made several years ago. However there just wasn't enough funds to put this board into production. Super clean 2 color tip to tip print and is a followup image to the Ipod Kamikaze. Limited to just 1 prototype.
