I had an art opening first friday in December to show what I have been working on lately. It's an installation at the Base gallery in the bottom floor of the Leedy Volkous Art Center. The show will be up until the end of January 2012 Baltimore.

A while ago I participated in a kustom kulture fashion show called UnScene. I was planning on just sending models down the runway in all black with my pieces as the highlight. I got asked to model for a fellow designer in the show, so we actually decided to collaborate as well as have me model for her clothes. I requested I to be put in a Punk Rods dress to represent for the car club im prospecting with. We were both very proud of the end result. I pinstriped handbags and shoes to match her dresses, and I also pinstriped some pieces for her to screenprint onto each piece of clothing. Over the course of preparing for this show I gained a great friend and colleague I absolutely adore her work. Each piece she creates is custom fitted to the model, (or you, she can make something out of whatever you want!) Check her stuff out at saumfrock.com

Couple of weekends ago, I was a vendor at the Gear Grinder carshow in my hometown of Kansas City, MO. Saturday turned out a pretty decent crowd, I was painting all day. The show was held at Knuckleheads, a very fun venue.

Here is my biscayne, her name is Karmilla she got to KC about three weeks ago. There is already hours of work put into it, although you may not be able to tell that yet, but its coming together. I ripped all the nasty interior out and vacuumed out all the dead wasps nest from the interior trim. She sat in a barn for about 8 years so you can imagine the dirt factor. I pinstriped part of the dash last week....pictures to come soon!
I know I am the worst at updating my blog.....so here is a few photos of some recent work. I also am the proud owner of a 59 biscayne now, so that takes up a lot of my time, I will post photos of the progression on that as well!

So I have been fairly off the radar for the past year. I blame my lack of updating on my defunct laptop which magically decided to start working again about two weeks ago. I spent the last year working in an automotive repair shop, and while its handy to know how to fix cars, its not something that I can realistically see myself doing for any prolonged period of time. I keep getting called back to customs and body work, which fit with pinstriping pretty darn well. I'm making it my goal to be at as many carshows as possible this show season so I will be surely updating my blog with new work very very soon. I have alot of stuff that I haven't been able to publish because of my computer. And for christmas my mom bought me a digital camera!! So, I digress, the point of this blog is that im back in the swing of things.
