painting I did of Keino

keino painting, originally uploaded by Richard Grabbe.

I've never painted before but I thought I'd give it a go and this is what I came up with. I know that my technique needs to improve, so I will keep on practicing. I think this turned out decent though. It Is oil On illustration board. I started out with the airbrush but decided to try the more traditional route. I have always been inspired by his work, and I thought that this image was such a cool angle and perspective that i decided to paint it. If I did not have things like this to do in the winter I think I would lose my mind. I'm gonna try to hone my skills a little more

My black bike

I built this from butted and straight gauge tubing. It's gonna be my going to the local dive bars and keeping it DUI free machine. It's getting an Alfine 8 speed internal hub and has internal routing for all the cables. It's not super light but it should last a while. Its about 5 pounds the way it sits.

WWF belt

This is a guy I know who's getting the wwf world champion belt tattooed in it's entirety around his stomach. He got in contact with the guy who designed it to get the line art. It's truly phenomenal.
