Addiction



When Jonathan from Deathtraps MC emailed me and asked if I would take a stab at illustrating a difficult scenario for them. He asked if I could draw a chopper dude with an addiction problem - snorting the white line off the inside of the curve on the road. The image hit me instantly. When I think of the Deathtraps dudes that is exactly the image I get of them. I love illustrating shit that inspires me or gives me vision like this. Thanks guys for looking me up. The shirts turned out great!
Here's the version with the front wheel added. and a detail shot to really get personal with that freak!

"I have nothing but admiration for anybody that sets up on their own, it takes
huge balls to do that sort of stuff. We’re just far more open to that way of
working. At one point a lot of the outsourcing work was going over to China and
to Asia, but because there’s this workforce a lot closer to home, who speak
English as a native tongue, it’s very easy to get some of those guys into a
studio and working on a project for a year and a half and really grow their
portfolio." John Rostron "Game Industry Interview"

Really grow my portfolio, eh?

Of course this only applies to the artists that wish to fill their portfolios with game industry art.
If you chose that route, you may want to invest in a lawyer.

COC/DiCE Party Ride From....

June 12th, 2011

With my front tire ticking like a time bomb.... every bump and bridge crossed was another lump in my throat. 60 miles out Pete signaled us off the highway and into an abandoned truck stop. He was having an issue with his carb so the rest of dicked around and played grab ass for a while as he got situated. Before getting back on the highway I pinched the sidewalls of my tire to see if it still had good air pressure. The slight pinch released all the air from the tube. I messed around with it for a while knowing that this tube was a lost cause. Brad was on his fancy smart phone looking for the nearest motorcycle shop. It was sunday and I was looking for a 21" tube... odds were not in my favor. Brad made one call and got an answering machine. It went something like this. "If you are inquiring about a Honda or metric motorcycle please hang up now. Here in america we are in the belief that motors are measured in cubic inches not cubic centimeters.. and the only language we speak is English. If you are inquiring about a Harley Davidson motorcycle please leave a message with your name and number if you are in an emergency situation please call my cell at xxx.xxx.xxxx." We knew that this was exactly the guy we needed. I called his cell phone and after a few rings he picked up.... He said "Shit... I'm at an NRA meeting right now... let me see what I can do and I'll get right back to you". Sure enough he called back and said he had a 21" tube and would ditch out of his meeting to help me out. We split in half... Pete, Ratchet, Steve and Meg stayed to watch my bike. I hopped on the back of Brad's bike with my wheel and Jeri followed.

When we arrived at Gary Hash's place we found a very energetic well built man. It was very apparent when we walked into his shop that he was a man of many interests. He had a soft spot in his heart for 60's CH's. Gary informed us that his first bike was a CH and that he had sold it many years back but recently rediscovered it and bought it back. After a little chat... he said let me pull out my tire changing station which consisted of a blanket and some tire spoons. He got on his hands and knees and replaced my tube. After a little more chatting we realized we had been gone for over 2 hours.... we knew the guys sitting at the abandoned truck stop were gonna be pissed. We didn't want to be rude and scurry out the door...... he was a very interesting man with so many stories.... but we told him we really needed to get down the road.

"Did some one say that they like guns!?!?!".... he asked has we walked out the door. You have to see my gun collection. We agreed to follow him to a different location were he stored his guns.... he said we wouldn't be disappointed. Holly Shit.... that we were not. He is a collector of mostly early guns and other early weapons. After another hour or so we finally made it back to some unhappy friends. Hey... we couldn't find the place.....

We ran into these little guys at a gas station in Western Illinois.
