Ever 3 years a redneck whispers "candyman" into a beer mirror 5 times and this 6 wheeled abomination appears in his front yard with a for sale sign. » 3/21/15 11:05pm 3/21/15 11:05pm

Lap of America. 8,400 Miles in 18 Days, in a Rental Car

Blue Ridge Parkway. Tail of the Dragon. Mardi Gras (on accident?!?). Hail, Snow, Rain, and Sleet. Texas BBQ. Dinner on the Pacific in Mission Bay. And that was just the first three days. » 3/12/15 9:39am 3/12/15 9:39am


Everything I Hate About Buying Used Cars in a Five Minute Window

I enjoy acquiring used vehicles. I don't enjoy the process of acquiring used vehicles. I have friends that get off on it, which is fine. I don't. I was explaining everything I dislike about it to Darla on our way to a local B lot. Not that I had to, she knows me. We were going to this lot to look at a 16 year old Land… » 2/09/15 4:59pm 2/09/15 4:59pm

ICON FJ44, '50 Merc, Triumph, other recent work

Surgery #4 was Friday. New doc, like this guy. Asked him how it went: "This is a very technical term...but your ECU tendon looked like shit. So we redacted it. Also stole a tendon here (points to back of wrist) to reconstruct the (insert actual technical terms here)." That's what I remembered, Darla said he… » 1/13/15 12:46pm 1/13/15 12:46pm

Fighting dirty....

Remember back in middle school, when there was that one know...kinda short, scrawny, always dirty. Got picked on once and only once, because in the ensuing brawl he left NO DOUBT in anyone's mind that he would kick, claw, scratch, bite, and gouge anyone that f@#$ed with him with such a fury that their own… » 10/20/14 10:30am 10/20/14 10:30am

1950 GMC COE sculpture...

My buddy Max Grundy is building a custom flatbed dually '50 Chevy COE, and I'll do a version of that later...but this one is a GMC. They'll both be at SEMA this year, if you're there come by the Skybridge between Central and South hall and say wassup! » 10/03/14 1:04pm 10/03/14 1:04pm

Icon's Derelict '52 Desoto Wagon.

I've done a few sculptures since the surgeries, but this is the first automotive piece. I'm hustling to get ready for this year's SEMA show as I'll be one of the 7 artists in this year's Art Walk (which hopefully becomes an every year part of the show). The man behind Icon, Jonathan Ward, commissioned this… » 9/25/14 8:48pm 9/25/14 8:48pm

Meet April...

Sometimes it's good to find perspective. There's a lot of stuff I don't post about online, but it's been, by far, the roughest year of me and my wife's life. And the hardest moment was when we lost Woodson 4 months ago. » 6/18/14 6:43pm 6/18/14 6:43pm

My Dad is Paul Bunyan (up again in honor of Father's Day)

My folks are the hardest working people know. I'm the oldest of nine kids, and although we weren't rich, we never wanted for much. Mom raised the kids and even home-schooled a few of us until high school(I'm the only college dropout, and the youngest is heading to CCS in a few weeks). Dad worked as a sheet metal… » 6/15/14 1:32pm 6/15/14 1:32pm

I'm back....ish.

I got the all clear from my doc last week. I'm still gonna need to get more work done down the road I think, but I've been out a year(so much for 4-7 months)...I've got shit to do. I wasn't sure how long it would take me to get my mojo back, but as it turns out the hand/eye coordination never really left. The… » 6/10/14 8:36pm 6/10/14 8:36pm
