My First Cover!

Well it happened- I finally got the cover (as a photographer) of a national automotive magazine! I have been writing for Ol' Skool Rodz and Car Kulture Deluxe for quite a few years now, recently taking photos as well as writing the articles (I used to just write articles relying on others to take the pics).

This shoot featured the lovely Lisa Leopard posing in front of Big Tom and Carla McDonald's '51 Henry J Gasser, aptly named "Mr. Nasty." Behind Nasty is their other a Gasser, a 1956 T-Bird (previously featured in Car Kulture Deluxe). When I opened my mailbox, I couldn't believe my eyes. I had no idea until then that we actually got the cover. Very cool indeed!

Invisible Surfers - Straight from Hell!

Just got the artwork done for the new Invisible Surfers CD entitled Straight From Hell!. This will be released on my Go-Kustom Rekords imprint here in the U.S. of A and is the second CD I have put out by these guys. The cover art features Tony Ririe's '29 Ford Hot Rod and Pin-Up Model Kitty Mansfield. I shot all the exterior photos with the cover being a composite of Kitty layered on top of Tony's Hot Rod. We shot in Toy's small garage and I had to remove the cluttered garage background, replacing it with fire and an open highway.
