Welcome !!

Hello everyone !

Thank you for stopping by my website, I’m not much of a blogger or writer for that matter so these may get a little on the rambling bad grammar side.

But i would like to do some blogs on small tutorials , event coverage, where i find inspiration, resourses for supplies, and so forth.

Later this week ill be heading out to Arties party which is a pinstripers panel jam up in Syracuse NY.

Stay tuned

Artie’s Party 2018

Artie’s Party 2018

Artie’s Party is held in Syracuse NY at the Syracuse Nationals car show its one of the largest car shows on the east coast. So what is Artie’s Party? it is a large panel jam where pinstripers, airbrushers, sign painters all get together from Friday to Sunday and create artwork to be auctioned off during the whole weekend usually around 60-70 artists attend every year. The artists travel from all around the world on their own dime to help raise money for the central NY Ronald McDonald House charity . Happy to say we reached almost $67,000 in one weekend! A great feat for pinstriping art.

This year marks my 5th year coming out , before 2013 i didnt really know much about panel jams stayed in my own bubble for so long and feel that events like these are the perfect place absorb knowledge and get inspired by some of the best artists in the industry. Before the show Art Shilling gave me a ring on the telephone asking if id like to help letter up a drag car during the event with Dino Lawrence and Rick Hansen, of course i said yes!
