Been a few minutes since I posted last ... I've been pretty busy these last few months with work and school, and now getting married in August! Here are some shots of work I was able to do at two of Utah's best 3 day Car Shows, the Rat Fink Reunion and Cache Valley Cruise In. For anyone who hasn't been to either of these shows I would highly recommend you put them on your calendar for the coming years. This was my first time attending the Reunion in Manti put on by Ilene Roth, widow of Ed BIG DADDY Roth, creator of Rat Fink and world renowned Kustom car builder. You get to hang out at their ranch in Manti, display your artwork and meet tons of amazing artists, walk through Ed's old garage which has been turned into a Rat Fink and Pinstriping museum, hear live bands and so much more! If I have my way, I'll never miss this show again.
The Cruise In, is Utah's largest 3 day show, held in Logan, UT. It averages 900+ cars every year in the Cache Valley fairgrounds... complete with a Poker Run on Thursday, Show and Concert on Friday with a big Classic Rock band (This year was REO SPEEDWAGON) and of course the main show on Saturday full of beautiful cars, trucks and vendors, swap meet etc. Saturday night they draw a raffle ticket and give away a restored classic car! The show concludes with a 2 hour main street cruise where the town is essentially shut down while the Logan county residents line the streets with lawn chairs and blankets to watch as hundreds of classic and custom cars/trucks cruise up and down main street making noise and showing off! Both are favorite summer traditions of mine and I look forward to many more years of attendance and pinstriping! Thanks for looking here are a few recent projects!
Oh, by the way... I am now authorized to use Ed Roth's characters
in my artwork... this includes Rat Fink, so I'm open for more
than just pinstriping now! If you have a project,
give me a call and figure something out!
