I got an email from pinstriper and filmaker Jesper Bram this morning with a sneak peak at their new teaser trailer for their upcoming documentary “Flake And Flames” which is due to be released in December. It promises to be one hell of a documentary that any pinstripe loving, kustom kultured son of a bitch will love.
Jesper is an internationally acclaimed pinstriper and artist and Dirk is a similarly admired lifestyle photographer, and their kustom kredentials opened doors and gave them candid access to top-notch names like Coop, Frank Kozik, Von Franco and The Pizz… amongst many other kustom artists and fabricators. The resulting 75-minute ‘Flake and Flames’ documentary is a pounding drool-fest of the planet’s koolest hot rods, choppers, art and music. It’s a film made with passion, it’s crowd-funded… and for the first time brings you an in-depth look at kustom kulture!
You could be part of Flake and Flames! To contribute to the production (and get some cool swag in return) just go to http://support.flakeandflames.com.
I got the chance to do something a little different recently when Canadian director George D’amato asked me to spice up his director’s chair with his name and some pinstriping. It was not an easy job as One Shot enamel paint and raw canvas do not like each other. But with a bit of research and some advice from some great Canadian stripers it soon got done and delivered. With an overly excited client at the end I couldn’t be happier.
Two great books when it comes to the kustom world of pinstriping.

I was fortunate enough to run in to Terry, the owner and editor of Canadian Hot Rod Magazine a while back, and he was telling me about his idea of doing a graphic/sticker/shirt for the magazine involving a beaver and the Super Bee logo. A couple of weeks later Terry and I were throwing back sketches and finally came up with their new t-shirt and sticker.
If you want to get yourself one of these t-shirts and/or stickers hit them up on the Facebook page to find out how.
I’m happy to announce that the Breath Of Fresh Air Design website has had a make-over with a lot of changes, a new look and a new direction…the true direction.
There’s a whole lot of new work and projects that have yet to see the light of day now posted up along with some great hot roddin kustom work and tattoo flash paintings for your eyes to feast on.
I have also opened up an online store where you can now buy several of my prints and original kustom artwork and I will be adding more items as they become available. Check out the store HERE.
So let me know what you think of the new look-and-feel and click the “Sign Me Up” button to the left here to stay up to date with any new posts.
More exciting things to come…
Finally back from the Megaspeed Custom Car Show this past weekend, and what a great time was had.
It was an absolute honor to be pinstriping alongside some of the best in the industry. A lot of fun was had and a lot was learnt!
A huge thanks to Craig and Darren from Hot Rod Swag for organizing the event. Thanks to Danno, John,Tramp, Rollie and pretty much everyone else for being such great guys, and I look forward to pinstriping alongside everyone again real soon.
This Tiki Lounge piece was one of the panels I completed over the weekend and I shall post some more over the next week or two.
