Sunday Sign #24- Batch of helmets

The scene shop was closed this week, so I spent that time painting these babies. All three are for sale, so if you want one, better nab it before someone else does! The flake on them will knock the eyeballs right outta your head! I'll be putting these 3, as well as the other 2 I've done recently on KSL and eBay soon, I'll post an update when that happens. If you're interested in getting one for yourself, you don't have to wait for that. Just get in touch with me by whatever means you have. Just in time for riding season!

Spooky Lithographs for Sale!

Also, for anyone who didn't see it on FB, I recently made these weirdo 2-color lithographs, based on an iconic image from Kenneth Anger's "Scorpio Rising". The loud yellow green is custom mixed, and all 8 prints are hand prepped and pressed, as well as signed and individually numbered. I've only got a few left, so get 'em before there's nothing left! $20 a pop, plus shipping (unless you're local). Get in touch with me if you want one!

Sunday Sign #Sorry- Comix Work!

Sorry, everyone: it's been a crazy busy week(end), which meant the Sunday Sign for this week had to be sacrificed on the altar of der Hauptmann von Köpenick. I've been cranking like crazy trying to get this comic and the Pulp Zine (like I keep saying, more on that soon) done by early Summer, so other things are having to take a bit of a back seat at the moment. Keep stopping by for updates on the comic and zine, as well as new Sunday Signs!

Sunday Sign #23- Sketch Book Drop Shadow

Time's a little short this week, so here's the first half of what will be a drop shadow label on my current sketchbook.

Sunday Sign #22- Husky Bell Helmet

Tonight's sign isn't much of a sign: it's only got one letter. I've had this old Bell dirt bike helmet kicking around for awhile, and I decided a week or two ago that I wanted to paint the Husqvarna logo on the back of it. Once that was done, I realized I haven't done any pin striping in some time, so I pulled a few goofy lines on it. It's for sale, so get in touch with me if you want it.

Sunday Sign #21- The Fokker

I spent yesterday afternoon at Creer Sheet metal lettering Ed's radical '57 Bug rod. He loves the old WWI Fokker fighter planes, so wanted that to be the motif for the bug. I unfortunately don't have any full body pics of the bug, or it's killer custom fabbed bomber seats, but it's all definitely a sight to behold. I also gave him the plate for the bike, which looked great installed.

Sunday Sign #20- Derby Helmet!

This was a really fun project, done for my friend Caitlin's roller derby helmet. I should have some better pics later this week. Her clever derby name is "Velocity Rapture", and her number 75, since Velociraptors lived 75 million years ago.

Coming Soon! New Comic Project

I made these character design drawings into little promos for the comic project I'm working on right now, der Hauptmann von Köpenick. The comic tells the true story of Wilhelm Voigt, an unemployed ex-con in turn of the century Prussia who got creative in deciding to pull a heist. I've been wanting to do a comic about this story for several years now, and I'm stoked that I'm finally getting to make it happen. The art should be done early this Spring, with copies available for purchase hopefully shortly after that. Keep an eye on the blog ( or follow my tumblr: http://dangersartpad.tumblr.com) for updates and additional sneak peaks! (I'll also be posting soon to introduce POISON: Pulp Zine, another cool illustrated project I'm working on that you can get your hands on late Spring/Summer 2014. Stay tuned!)

Sunday Sign #19- Creer Sheet Metal

This week's sign was super fun. Ed Creer at Creer Sheet Metal asked me to do this for him, as well as some lettering on his '57 VW Bug (which I'll post when I do it in a week or two). This metal plate is off of a Schwinn Cycle Truck that he restored and wanted the company name on, as well as it's original phone number (the "FR" stands for "Franklin"). I'll get some pictures of it posted when it's actually on the bike, but here's the finished lettering.

Sunday Sign #18- Puck

Tonight's comes from Shakespeare and Kenneth Anger. Pretty fast and sloppy, just practicing strokes.

Sunday Sign #16- Grandpa

This was another gift, this one for my mother. While I'm sure my late maternal grandfather wasn't the first to use this phrase as a personal mantra, it's his use of it that matters in my family. The color scheme was inspired by his career as a mechanic for John Deere. This photo comes from the sign's current home, my mother's sewing room.
