Aged hand lettering today...

I hand lettered this 1949 Ford F-6 today, and gave it 50 years worth of wear. There is only one way to produce realistic aged lettering, and that is to hand letter it. Almost every time that I see "faked" old lettering, it's sprayed through a stencil and buffed off in random spots. This is not how lettering ages. Old hand lettering fades in the strokes, and is very directional. This can't be duplicated in a sprayed field. I have studied and geeked out on old faded lettering for years. It's a real joy to produce lettering that is very believable.

Four Lanterns winery...

I just finished and hung today the main tasting room signage at the Four Lanterns Winery in Templeton/Paso Robles. Raw steel with Stainless on aged rustic wood. A great combination!

Just finished up these early 3.5 gal Panhead tanks for a friend of ours. They were her fathers tanks when he was a young man. Now that he has passed away, they will serve as an ern at each of his childrens houses.

Devil's in the detail...


This 1951 Triumph Thunderbird build is turning out to really be outstanding! Anyone who knows Bryan Thompson, knows that nothing escapes his eye. Every part of this bike has been looked over, re-worked and manipulated for the better. I again am so proud to have a small part in this build, with the hand lettering and pinstriping. There is so much that is still "top secret" that I can't show yet, but belive me, it's out of this world! If you like early custom Triumphs, then this is a bike to see. I'm sure it will be "everywhere" once it makes it's debut at Born Free 6. And the truly crazy thing is that this bike will be up for grabs on Saturday at Born Free, if you ticket is pulled! But a bunch of Born Free 6 raffle tickets, and get your chance...


Volcom Stone...


Honored to be asked to paint the award skateboard deck for the Volcom Newport 500 surf event. The theme this year was Nascar inspired, so I was tasked to create a painting along those lines. I was given full creative control, without a lot of restraints. The only stipulation, was that the stone logo must be somewhere. I also got to choose the deck. I went with the Vision Gator shape from like 1984. My own influences from my youth, are all over this board, from the Richard Petty colors, to the 80's deck. Then to find out that Jim Gray (G&S sider) at Inkgenda was making the blanks and the transfers was even better, totally 70's / 80's! A big thanks goes out to Volcom, they were great to work for, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
