Hi! I was referred here by 406nova (but have trolled around here before, because I have a crush on Ben Hermance's art lolz) (oh and Lemorris is my brotha from anotha motha, in case you were wondering).

I like unicorns, long walks on the beach, and foot rubs. Oh, and beer

lolol

My gallery is in my sig - I'm kind of a 'Jill of all Trades'. Started out doing 'toons of my mini truck club members' cars, then paint designs for Doug Starbuck. Then I met my ex, who at the time worked 'in the industry' (automotive aftermarket) and he introduced me to people... well I networked, got better at what I did, and started getting published.

Come 1998, I wanted to learn how to do shirt layouts in the Mac, so I got a G3... taught myself Illustrator and Photoshop, and was thrown in the deep end of the pool at Mattel as a temp graphic designer for Hot Wheels, which led to a long stint in the die cast industry, then a couple 'normal' graphic design gigs (turd polishing), then a brief time at a technical clothing design firm, and now back to 'turd polishing'. All this time I've done the 'car stuff' on the side.

So now I guess you could say my skillset includes:

* Vehicle renderings!
* T-shirt design & seps
* Paint design
* Vinyl graphic/Wrap design
* Graphic design - logos, print media, ads, catalogs, etc.
* Web design
* Technical apparel & product design
* Custom illustration
* Project car help - including proposals - I've consulted a few peeps on this in the past, since the ex and I built a dozen or so cars for SEMA, etc.)

I can also make a mean avocado sammich, and my container garden is the shiznik.


Hi everyone

Default Time for an introduction

Been strolling through here for several months ever since Chris Fesler told me about the website. I know some of the other artists here from other forumns but figured I had a spare moment and would give a short intro, just to say hi.

Default photo shop request

I have a photo shop request. I am planning on doing some body mods on my race car when I get done with my charger. What I have is a 2003 neon srt-4, that I started running in time attack events last season before I deployed.

I am planning on upping the hp a bit, and building a few things for it, to give a little better handling. I have already made a couple of aero mods to it, and would like to improve upon them. I would also like to run bigger wheels and tires for it. I already have in mind what I would like to do to it.

I just do not know anyone with enough photo shop skills, to make my vision come alive. If someone would like to help me, I would be more then happy to pay you for your time.
thank you, MANNY..

Hi all, name is Otis. I have been referred casually to the site on a handful of times by a few people. A few days ago a friend from another site pushed me over here with nothing but great things to say of all of you. When I first logged on and noticed some of the names of members I was a little taken back. Quite a few of the names I have been following around the web, unbelievable artists.

i have had an interest in art from childhood, ashamed to say I had a rather extensive Graffiti career thru high school, found and fell deeply in love with the tattoo world from dads biker friends by two, dipped around a little working at tattoo parlors in my twenties, got married had kids, quit drawing cuz my hands hurt from this thing called work.

Cars, well pretty much loved them from the day I road home in one back in 73. Really tho, have loved cars and everything about them for as long as I can remember. I remember seeing Kris' Camaro concept in the rags and thinking "What a gig, to be able to make those cars on a computer at home, for money" Needless to say at that time having an email account was the extent of my computer savvy.

Long story short, last year a friend gave me PS CS2 for Christmas, I played with it a little, thought wow this is fun, PCSed to Ft Bragg, put it down to learn the ropes of being a stay at home dad. Picked it back up a few months ago and have been really playing with it hours and hours almost every day. Made a few cool pics that met me a few cool people, a few of which have commissioned me to work something up, ( feels great, but at the same time, I didn't realize how little attention to detail I was paying on my own stuff). Working on a picture for compensation sheds a whole new light on detail.

Any way just wanted to say hi, and let all of you know how honored I am to share space with you. You guys are some of the best conceptual artists around, and it is truly an honor.

Welcome Otis, great story. I've done a lot of tattoo designs for buddies in the past. There's some amazing artist in that industry too. I hear you on the "life happens" thing. Sometimes I wish the day was a few hours longer so I could get more ideas on paper and still have time to play with the kids.

Now you have to post up some work!
