Autofest

Great weekend at Autofest,
lots of very nice cars and people

The charity auction was one of the best to date!

Below is a sample of what I painted Sunday, it's Penelope Pit Stop on a bowling pin and is far from finished, keep checking back for updates.

Things to do

Still things to do around the 'new to us' house, lots to do, sort, unpack, so no work on the paint studio to share.
But on a sidebar I can't believe some people don't check/change the furnace filter...

Practice, Practice, Practice

Not much of that has been going on around here just moved 12 days ago.

This SIGN 'pun intended' is from an old sign painting book Unkl Ian gave me.

New paint studio

We have move and I get to put together a new paint studio!!! It's not big, which for me is a good thing, I have a tendency of collecting too much stuff!
So lean and mean from hear on in.. Easel will go up on the right side with storage behind and the tool box will have a table top added.
Check back for up dates and I'll be documenting my lettering practice.

New DeWALT Jigsaw!!

For years I have been taking care of my old tools and thought if they work why replaces them, last month I bought a new DeWALT DW317K Jig Saw to replaces a 30 year old B&D my Mom bought when I was 10.

Well I should have bought one 20 years ago, I think I would have saved weeks of cutting time. The DeWALT DW317K Jig Saw  jigsaw is a dream to use (yes I'm name dropping and linking this to amazon). The DeWALT jigsaw has a variable speed trigger, tilting blade and quick blade release. No more flat head screw driver gouging into my fingers, while I try to change the blades.

Just awesome, I'm saving up for some more new DeWALT tools to replace the relics I'v been using for years!

My hope in buying some new tools will be a return in time saved, looking for feature like quick release and quick change.

New Toy

Moving soon and got a new toy for when I setup shop, bought this Electrio Pounce machine to speed up the time it takes to make stencils.

Candy & Toys


Uturn cleaned up and striped for a slower moving location, hoping it will get noticed.
I cleaned it up by removing all the stickers and changed the mechs over to 25cent.
The green is to same colour as the company logo where its is going...
