Every week is shark week. I did a few sketches to post of my favorite fish. I may add to this since my sons have expressed interest. Great White!

Thunderclouds & Lightning

This week I was contacted by Tom Yazwinski from KNWA news to do a story about my lawnscapes. It was fun but I was a little nervous that my design wouldn't turn out with the pressure being on. We also had some friends, Shane & Christi show up and watch. Everything went well and I got about 1 minute and 45 seconds of fame out of the deal. Thanks Tom!!

Schwinn Stingray Makeover

My Father just purchased two used Stingray Chopper bicycles for my kids.  I will admit I am vicariously living through my sons though and their level of excitement over these bikes was minimal compared to mine. Fortunately I live across the street from a master mechanic (josh) who cut his teeth on bikes as a kid, so when it came to getting everything back together I wasn't worried.
We started with the black one and as you may see there was a fair amount of rust on the handlebars and the forks. When we took the forks off the chrome had started to peel which was the main reason we ended painting them black. The stickers had also suffered from some weathering and they to had to be removed. I have to say though the bike looks and rides great. I'm on the lookout for some ape hangers which should make it  look that much cooler! Thanks Grandpa! Part 2 coming soon.
