Tiki God

The Challenge - One on one combat with an infantile stone Tiki God that fights dirty.  He kicks and bites, it's ugly.  No class at all.

The Prize - One hot 1957 Chevrolet pickup in Baby Blue. Well worth the danger, I think. Besides, she's got a big knife, so I think she'll be okay.  And then, on to Tiki God 2, where there's a '39 Dodge to be had.

11x26, painted in watercolor.  Contact me for purchase info.

Monster Truck Monster

Submitted this week to the Threadless.com "weird" challenge.

It started as a 1936 Ford Dearborn cab-over conversion, but quickly morphed into something else, something...  otherworldly. Something that ate hitchhikers with the cool nonchalance of a one legged seagull eating cold french fries in a Utility Burger parking lot. The world shall tremble at the tentacled terror called Monster Truck Monster!  Coming to a T-shirt near you, I hope.

Voting for this design may be accomplished here, if you are so inclined.

Began as a pencil sketch, finished in Photoshop.

Burger Break

"What's for dinner?" 

"Fish.  AGAIN!!" 

 It's another day of the same old, and it's enough already.  You need something new and different before you go mad   So climb out of the ocean, swipe yourself a Chevy wagon, and drive to the nearest Utility Burger for the Heart Stopper Value Pack, with Bonus Fries and an Atomic Chocolate Shake.

Because even lobster can suck if it's all you ever eat.

Painted in watercolor, 9x23 inches.  Contact me for purchase info.

The Low Power Wagon

Another low riding, completely impractical, and maybe impossible 4WD hot rod pickup. 

As with the first Impossible, the important part of this build is to get the body to scrape the pavement, while preserving the four wheel drive system.  The fact that the body has been sectioned compounds the problem, as there is now less space inside the sheetmetal in which to cram all the workings.  What do you do?  Relocate the engine to the bed, or the passenger seat?  You'd have to re-engineer the front wheel driveline.  Smaller engine?  Why bother?  What's the point of a Power Wagon without the power?

Can it be done in the real world, or is it doomed to be only a screwball idea on watercolor paper?
