Seeds that stuff is great. I'm also a big fan of this style artwork and I've been playing around with pinstriping for about a year now. Awesome work bud. Do you tattoo or anything? Love that old Ford with the arm and shifter coming through the roof. Nice job. Post more as much as possible and maybe give us a link to buy some prints?

The Avanti caught my eye too. I'd like to see more. And I love the Grand Masters trompe l'oei paintings. So I enjoyed seeing the Falcon grille and headlights.

Hi Gary!

What a gallery of great work. You got the knack of flames, for certain!

But my favorite is the grille & headlight work on the Falcon. I've done a few of those, and I can relate to the amount of work involved. Reminds me of the Funny-Car art that the big-name racers flaunted on their rides back in the 70's. 

Bravo!

Thanks Claude, yeah as a kid I was always amazed at the work being airbrushed on the head lights and tail lights of the funny cars of the early 70’s , even though I’ve airbrushed most my life I was never asked to try my hand at it till I was in my 40’s !! Lol,  first a 55 Chevy drag car then a 63 Chevy nova drag and this 65 falcon drag car , and a couple years ago a 69 Z/28 drag car, there a lot of fun to do , I would do everyday if I could!!

Gseeds send me a mail on here man I'd like to commission some art work and see what your prices are.

Looks like he hasn't been here since July. If you're interested and have a Facebook account check out Cartoon drawings of cars, trucks and bikes. Lots of very talented artists working in numerous mediums from pencil to digital. Many of them accept commission work. It's a public group so you shouldn't have to sign up to see posts.
