Kustom Lane THE ATOMIC AGE

Howdy Folks!!

Here is a poster I did for the upcoming Kustom Lane Show THE ATOMIC AGE, it opens Saturday 2nd of May at 2pm in the arvo and it's on till the 24th of May, so if you can't make it to the opening come some other time, there will be copies of the poster for sale with other bits and peices I am doing for the show.


I've been drawing heaps of stuff but I can't show it just yet, It's got to do with surfboards... well.... you can take a look at these pencil drawing but I have changed Palazzi the surf NAZI a bit in this bottom drawing, the legs were looking funny.... so I changed them (you'll see when I post the inked versions.



And here is a little sketch for a board that is supposed to be called "THE FREAK" but I've got this idea about a mutant surfer so maybe we could call the board "THE MUTANT" we'll see.



Also here is a drawing I did, I still have to ink it but it's for a Melbourne Board Repairs sticker, but I'm not 100% sure because I really wanted to draw some crazy scene inside their workshed, which I'm hoping on Monday I'll be able to go in and study some of the stuff they have there, so I don't know if I'll ink this drawing, maybe just for fun...



Later on I'll post the paintings I've done for the Kustom Lane exhibition, I've got them drawn out but I still need to paint them, so stay tuned!!

Just a little animation thing.

Here is a little clip I've been working on, it has no story or nothing, but I'm doing it as an exercise to learn to use Flash more than anything and to animate to music, I've still got heaps to learn but I am having the funnest time!!
I also put some shit effect on Adobe After Effects that I don't really like now!! ohh well? also I have to work on the backgrounds and so and so on!!
I love the music on this, it's by Parham–Pickett Apollo Syncopaters (W/ "Tiny" Parham & Junie C. Cobb) and the song is called Mojo Strut, ever since I heard it I thought, something need to be animated to this, it's just so jiving and fun! there is heaps more to the song!
hope you like it!

He Ho! BO!!

Hello People!

I present Bo Savage, the surfin cannibal!!



Plus some other characters, I still have to work on....

This guy up top is Palazzi The Nazi, will he be Bo's friend or foe?

And I don't know what will happen to this surfin Elvis but we'll let him hang around, kind of reminds me of the Elvis interpretor at Camberwell Market... have you seen the guy, I remember him from high school... he'd carry his battery powered stereo playing thash metal full Vol. and he'd sing to it, he would frequent Box Hill Station, that's where I met him... He's really out there!!! but he's a nice guy!
