I'll draw your bike. Or car. Or truck. Or whatever.

    Folks, some of you may know by now that I like to draw. I'm an old fashioned guy, all work is done with an ink pen and sometimes a pencil.

    This year I'm making a push to crank out some more work. All proceeds from this sale will go to raising funds to start another moto/art inspired project I have in mind.

    What I can do: I can draw just about anything you want me to. I love bikes, obviously, and other machinery. That is my specialty. The dirtier and rustier the better. I will draw it, in ink, on paper, and send you the original art. I can also send you a scanned image if you like. I will draw it the way I draw it. It will rule. You will like it.

    What I can't (or don't)(or won't) do: I don't do extensive work on the computer. My work is hand-drawn. I am NOT a professional "graphic artist". You don't get revisions. You don't get to tell me how to draw. You have to trust me. I'll take any input you might have such as favorite colors ahead of time and do the best I can to work with your thoughts but at the end of the day it'll be my art based on your bike. :D Also, I don't want to draw your newborn baby. Its boring, and your baby is fugly anyway. :lol3 I want to draw machinery and cool things. :freaky

    What you get: One hand drawn piece of original art for you to do with what you want. Want to use it for club shirts? Go for it. Wanna frame it and hang it over your fireplace to replace that Thomas Kinkade piece of shit your wife hung up? It'd be my honor. Tattoo on your lower back. Nothing says 'I kick ass' like a male tramp stamp. The only thing I ask is you not use my work to sell things like shirts and stickers for yourself or your business at a profit. If you want a shirt for your business or to resell, PM me and we can talk.

    What I need from you: A couple GOOD photos taken in GOOD LIGHT. Daylight works best. The flashlight from your iPhone in your garage is not what I want. I want outdoors on a sunny day for the best art. I'll do my best to work with whatever though. I like a good challenge. If you are semi-local I can photograph your bike for you. Let me know if you need help with this.

    My rates: For the first five people that contact me my price for ADVriders is $200. My usual price is $300. I also love bartering. I just bought a /5 I might could use things for (esp a set of luggage). Turnaround time varies. I work a full time day job that keeps me super-busy. I work on inspiration. If I feel inclined I might get your photos and crank something out in one night. It might take me a month. It will NOT take MORE than a month. If you have a deadline I need for you to let me know before we get started to see if I can handle it.

    Stay tuned for examples of my work...

    Sweet. Flux is the real deal! I've seen the stuff in his basement that he's too modest to share here. Most of what he's shown here seems to be in a similar vein, but don't pigeon hole him. If I had any need of an artist, I'd go to Flux first. In fact I have in the past.


    In the interest of open disclosure, I have to complain that he once sold me a KTM and neglected to tell me the gyroscope was having issues. Damn thing fell over all the time. Seemed worse when it was wet, muddy, or in the presence of people with cameras. Others who rode didn't seem to have a problem. Very annoying problem to diagnose.

    Thanks Mossy_Crk. Good talking to you tonight, sorry my phone blows so bad at my house! If you thought the KTM had a gravity issue I can only think what you feel about the BMW. :lol3

    Nytrashman, PM sent, but for the rest, size is usually 11" x 14" or 9" x 12". I can accomodate though! :freaky

    Thanks for the replies, y'all! I am working with 5 right now! I've returned all PM's sent to me, sorry for the delayed response: its spring time in the Georgia landscaping world and it's been a busy week.

    I'd still be interested in talking to anyone that has a cool/interesting need! :deal
