Im gonna keep adding more pictures and updates here very soon. But today i finally had a chance to grab few pictures of 2 bikes i painted not long time ago. Not the best shots, took them inside of my friend Bike Doctor shop. We waiting for nice weather and def gonna try my best in taking better shots. Anyways this is better than nothing hahha. Since the last update few bikes received new finish, and i dont know what i was thinking 3 out of 5 end up living my shop without good pictures… at least i cant find any here. Kinda blows. Well green bike its Bike Doctor ride , btw if u around and need someone to wrench ur bike he is the man!!

I have to keep reminding myself to always bring the camera on the last day of projects . Its nice to document the work. But past few months things were so CrAzY that honestly this was last of my worries haha. Anyways here is few of the projects i did in past months. Time for me to hit the grove again !!!
Few days ago i run across of ArtRage drawing software. It works fantastic!!!I need to update my tablet im still using Wacom Artpad 2 , which is like 10 years old hahaha.O well we get the new one some day.
Anyways here is few rough sketches i did. The drawings are actual request and might be used in future project. Its skull ,demon themed quickies. But its fun to draw with ArtRage !!!haha. Plus saving big time on pencils and paper. GO GREEN!!!
Been busy with bunch of crazy small and big projects, mostly not worth documenting. some pinstriping restoration ,some fender bender crap, some small artwork. It was crazy azz month. I did cool scooter repaint . I received it completely trashed .someone brushed and rolled enamel paint all over it and tried to fix it with paint remover!!!! I painted with stage marble effect to give some texture and cherry candy.Lots of work. Wheels, front and rear suspension, all the plastic panels had to be completely sanded ,blasted, scraped before i could even think on shooting primer. almost 3 weeks from day zero to delivery. Glad is done and glad owner is super happy:)
I found couple hours to paint Jim Morrison for the friend in town.
Not really qualify in pinup category but its little on that line. anyway im doing series of paintings on canvas and panels for sale. This is the first one. 24 by 19 canvas , uros and clear . Sorry for crapy pictures , just imagine the painting looks better !!!! haha
Two of my friends asked me for some sketches of their projects.Cuda and Coupe, the second one will done this spring. Will post some pictures of finish cars.
Very nice Harley i had the chance to work on in past 14 days.Yeap 14 lovely days .The tints were in crap condition(paint was shiny with bad body work under)…,engine needed refreshment and on the top owner requested few small customizations. So all together = lots of work.
Check the flush mount caps on this stretcher. Normally the early tanks have small ring( weld) around the filler gas cap. Now it’s nice and flush.From epoxy to artwork, all Hok Paints including kandy and mini flakes. I chose Matrix for the clear and KustomShop for pinstripping.
I spent my weekend painting this goalie hockey mask. The mask was originally metallic red and in decent condition, which made the prep a little easier on me. I started with a fresh coat of white base over the primer, then some toned-down skin tone color, art work and finally, clear coat. It was all done with HOK paints. The back plate piece was airbrushed with very thin sepia and some pagan gold candy. The main mask was mainly painted using traditional brush and finished by airbrush to get the smooth look and to add few shadows. The first layer of clear was mixed with little blue ice pearl, just a small touch. It was fun a project. I’m ready for the next one. 🙂
I resurrected an old hard drive and found a few more photos of my work done in the past. I thought it would be good to post it.
Drawing of rock climber and portrait of a woman. Actually it was modified. 🙂 Per request, I moved the hand.
And airbrushed Tiger cubs. This was done with Createx paints on bristol.
Found some old photos of paintings I did few years back. Those two were my first steps in ab painting. Golden paints and Richpen airbrush.
