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.
