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.

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.
The brand new MegaSpeed Custom Car & Truck Show will be taking place in a week and a half’s time right here in Toronto and I will be smack in the middle of it all pinstriping and painting some panels alongside some of Canada best pinstripers.
So if you’re planning on attending, stop on by the Brush Rush North section and come and say hi.
Make sure you check out some of the other great artists that will be there: Chris “Curse” Stapley, ”Danno” Drouin, Nick Veldhuizen, Christian “Melks” Melchior, John “Mask” Maschke, Craig “Thrall” Williams, Darren “Swag” Graham, Rob “Jr” Valentini, and a whole lot more.
Finally finished the art piece for London’s Haunted Tattoos Xmas Noir Exhibition that will be taking place on the 16th of December.
So if you’re in London between 16 December and 16 January make sure you pop in to Haunted Tattoo (159 Holloway Road, London) to check out the great work from some amazing artists.
One Shot on wood!
It has been a while since I’ve had chance to photograph anything and a couple of weeks back I was lucky enough to have attended a barbershop’s one year anniversary party with a great atmosphere, hot rods, bands and free booze.
I was able to grab some great shots of the day which have been published on the Toronto Rockabilly website (www.torontorockabilly.com) and will be published in a Canadian publication in the next couple of months.
So I thought I’d share some of the photos:
