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.

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.

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.

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!)

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.
