The other great thing that happened this weekend besides the auction of the Comet for charity, was the debut of the trade show booth that I designed for Stewart Warner. I'm really happy with the results and Inspired Exhibits did a great job turn my vision into reality. The really neat thing is that my Granddad, Hershel Hill retired from SW after 20 years. My Dad worked there for a summer as a kid, which makes me the third generation of my family to be involved with SW. Pretty neat. The brick tower took me 4 days to paint the logo on both sides. I shot the gauge photography and Tim Sutton​ shot the cars (except for the Valiant photo not seen in this photo). Special thanks to partners in crime Josh Russell​  for walking in me through a major project like this, and Kevin J. Tully​ for working with me for the past 3 years to land them as a client.

Happy Birthday Corsair

Here is a patch design that I created for the Commemorative Air Force Dixie Wing's Corsair. Who doesn't get excited by the sight of a Corsair screaming in above the palm trees?

Boyd Coddington '40 Ford

This is the '40 Ford retractable hardtop that I designed for the Hot Rod Magazine Boyd Coddington contest back in 1997. The winner would have the car built by Boyd, and would get a set of the wheels that they designed for the winning entry. I placed in the top 6 and the renderings were on display at SEMA. When I spoke to Chip Foose on the phone, he said they liked it but had just finished a '40 Ford for Micheal Anthony of Van Halen so didn't want to do another one so soon. Boyd got into Government trouble, so the winning car was never built. I was really into the Billet style in the early 90s, so it was fun to try to design a car for them. Little did I know almost 20 years later, I'd be designing cars for my own company! Lol.

WWII Victory Day

Artwork I designed for EAA for a proposed Victory Day event. Unfortunately the event never made it past the planning stages. I really like the finished art though. I wanted to have the museum's P-38 "Marge" flying right overhead of a jeep to convey the idea of a living history event. Look for this art to be taken over by Warbird Rescue for future use.

2015 and 1973 Dodge Challenger Giveaway Project for Napa

I was asked to design some matching Napa Dodge Challengers to be given away at Napa Expo in Las Vegas. I did about 25 versions before client landed on this Charcoal version.

Jefferson Swap Meet '55 Chevy

Here is the 2nd design that I created for the Jefferson Swap Meet and Madison Classics featuring a '55 Chevy custom and a gorgeous pin up, 2 of my favorite things!

Here's a sneak peak of a Tshirt that I'm working on for a new client. I reimagined my '36 Ford coupe as a barn find for this one. Finished art coming soon...
