This is the latest job, I have the next 3 weekends booked up so I will be posting more soon! I had a lot of fun with this chair, it's gold vinyl (if you can't tell).

Okay so I have a new idea for a photo shoot I would like to do. I have been wanting to make some who I am/what I do post cards for a while. I get a lot of people who don't understand what pinstriping is, and rightly so I wouldn't know what it meant either. Anyhow, I would like to replicate this photo I found of Kenneth Howard a.k.a Von Dutch. I think it would be cool because it would be a gender reversal, and it would pay homage to the guy who pretty much invented modern day pinstriping. Sorry the photo is kind of blurry, it was the only copy I could find...but you get the idea.

Okay, here is that tan purse finished. I discovered that it does not stay shut once you put a bunch of stuff in it. Sorry (Jesse) but I can't sell this one. That really is a shame, it's like having kids (not that I would know anything about that) you like all of them, but secretly you know there has to be a favorite somewhere in the group. Plus, it's great advertising.

I got the second color finished on this one Thursday night, and I just got the photos back! I am really happy with the way this one turned out. I had kind of a slow weekend, no custom jobs. I did however paint a mess of handbags for my good friend kip's shop Solaris Massage. I painted the doorjams on my car this weekend. Those pictures will be up soon, it started getting dark and I couldn't get a decent shot.

I have some handbags available at Solaris Massage in the River Market. (106 East 5th St. B/T Walnut and Grand). I have sold all but three! I have been working on some more lately but this one I have a really soft spot for. You don't really see too many vintage tan bags, plus my mom found it for me. :) It's begging for a second color, I think I might have to add this one to my collection.
Here is the scuba tank I have been working on...I still need to add the second color, i'm planning on using process blue. I'll upload another picture of the end result.

The third job I had this weekend was for the drummer of the Mokan Flames. His floor tom is red glitterflake. I loooove glitterflake finishes. His only requirements were orange and red striping, another great customer.
Another job I had this weekend was my good friend Joshua's Carburetor. He chose red and black, which happens to be my favorite color combination. He is the proud owner of a 1964 Chevy c-10 pickup. We are planning to stripe the entire thing once the primer is applied. I think this turned out pretty good, it was a really really small surface to work on, and there were a few jagged places, but all-in-all a good end product.
I had a few jobs this weekend, one of them was a custom job for the lovely Seagren. She gave me a vintage black patent leather purse to work on, the only requirements being that it be pumpkin orange and white. These are probably my favorite jobs, when they have a general idea of what they want. I really like hearing I don't know, whatever you think looks good. My dog really liked this purse too.
