hi all,

wanted to share some of the stuff i've been painting up: some for swaps on here and others for friends/customers . . . enjoy!

also, if anyone is interested in learning to airbrush i would be happy to answer any questions you might have.  it is an intimidating hobby when you first start out, but i know a few tricks, the better brands for supplies, and i have a list of great youtube videos.

for instance, before i start painting something complex i will draw it out on the shirt in chalk, first.  the chalk mostly blows away once i start painting, but it allows me to have an idea for placement, and any residual chalk washes away.

this is one of 15 backpacks i painted for a local youth group.  everyone's name in cow print

when i work at the booth i have customers ask all the time "is that hard?"  airbrushing is like drawing at an easel, using both hands to hold your charcoal without the ability to rest your hand somewhere to steady it, and without the ability to erase.  so, is it hard?  sure, at first it's hard.

Oh I am so glad that you posted these. I have been stressing about getting pix of these online but I have had a week of either computer issues, internet connectivity and now camera issues...arrghh..I hate technology!

I really really wanted everyone to see the amazing artist that you are and so I am so glad that now people can! I adore your work and really want to learn how you do what you do! can you point me in the direction of those videos you mentioned. I did buy a compressor and a couple of guns some time ago, but they are gathering dust. They are probably not really good ones, but it would be nice to learn to do something with them!

edel - my boss is kent lind and he has a whole series of youtube tutorials that can help you out.  the first one is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InUui4QNMW0 and i am sure you can find the rest through that video.

we use a combination of iwata eclipse and vega airbrushes.  the iwata eclipse runs $80ish per gun, but they give great crisp lines and they are the best for the price.  all the black writing and outlines are done with iwatas.  you can get decent results with less expensive guns, but if you want to be more than a hobbiest you'll want the upgrade.

let me know if you have any questions.
