Dead Rider coming!

 So the art guild I belong to is doing a Day of the Dead exibit.  I like that holiday so I decided to do something up for it.  It's me so it's gotta involve a bike.  Day of the dead...so it's got to involve a skeleton.  Easy....


Final sketch at work

Sketched on watercolor paper




Yeti for Fat-Bike.com

Well this one was a bit of work.  I worked up a bunch of sketches for Gomez to see what he'd like.  I worked on that for a couple weeks.  Finally came up with a decent one.  Worked that one up.  Here's the result.





Timberleaf Commission

After seeing a few of my other trailers Timberleaf trailers asked me to do one of there's.  Here's the result.  It was a fun project.  I added some details of my own.  Like the kettle and pour over coffee filter.  The owner sent me some personal photo's and in one they had some hand crocheted flags, so I added those also.






Hot Rod Vespa

I've been trying to get better sketching with my wacom tablet on my computer.  Here's a hot rod Vespa I did.


RV going anywhere?


 I had a thing for making some funny RV and camper's for a bit.  Here's the result.






Puch to the gut.

Commission for a good friend.  A Puch scooter.  I also did a "fun" painting of this same bike.  I actually did that one first.  It was a fun bike to paint.

For Odin!

I had been debating about painting a bike for Odin's this year.  I had thought about just offering up one of my other done paintings.  I had started a Surly Straggler a few months prior and it had just been sitting in a rough sketch phase.  I had been looking at my art work and how I've progressed over the years.  One thing I thought I liked about some of my older pieces was the roughness of the painting.  I was wondering if I could get that quality back.  Not as precise.  Loser edges.  So I picked up the Surly rough sketch and went to town.  I really like how it turned out.  I also added a raven to the top of my signature to show that this was for Odin's Revenge.
