Spring Almost Gone, Summer Almost Here!

Hey y’all, thanks for stopping to take a look at what we’re doing in our virtual studio today.

This year we are attempting once again to set up a ‘shop’ for the season.

It’s been awhile since we’ve done the ‘airbrush booth’, but after last year’s wedding entertainment gig and local mural works with much positive feedback, we decided to once again open up a booth for the season to see what comes of it…and we’re super-busy just getting ready from signage…

…to making designs…and decorating…

MainView-Still working on it

We ‘re not totally up and running yet, because we got a late start to the right opportunity but we can totally do work for you – even if you don’t want airbrush, we can still make sketches, sculptures or whatever you need to fill that ‘empty space’ in your home, workplace, or ‘blank area’ on your clothes, helmets, motorcycles, cars, etc.

Fortunately, for our sanity, and probably unfortunately for travelers , a traffic light is being put up in front of the store to allow more visual connection to what we do and where we are. We are hoping this helps business…

We are really excited about this new venture but this doesn’t mean we are out of the mural business, but does mean we have more lines in the ‘water’ for income’s sake.

Well at least we’re half way there…time for a cold one and a very, very small break.

Adding New Life = Greens

Thanks for stopping by our little virtual studio to see the progress on our latest  mural. The mid-ground colors…

On a giant mural like this we attack in different ways, a lot of general (base coats) colors get worked on throughout the room before we start adding the details, which will be on our next installment. We also layout things a few ways from opaque projection to by-eye sketching with a paint gun to brush work which allows for some cool textures that are almost impossible with airbrush…or would take too long.

This episode, we start to work in the greens to the work to add a taste of life…so refreshing and…I’m gonna have to order more of it! But check this out so far:

Fluorescent Green is an astounding ‘base color’ (sometimes FL. Yellow before this!). It has the transparency to allow the blues and darker colors to come through (allowing for shadows later), but still has the punch for highlights…AND it makes it own light. So when indoors, I like to use them for part of the base because it seems to cause all the other non-florescent colors to also ‘glow’ to some degree. It really livens up the color. HINT:Trade secrets found here! Can also see some of our animal cut-outs awaiting their colors too…Img2014_08_30_16-37-24 Img2014_08_30_16-37-36Here we have toured the whole room and we can see a little of the front right of the stage behind a tired artist:

New Blog But Not Our First Rodeo

Howdy y’all! We appreciate your stopping by our virtual studio and gallery. We will eventually be adding homegrown music to our site so bear with us as we get the ball rolling…

Today is our first day of posting our work, but we have over 20 years experience, so you’re bound to see some cool artwork, and eventually music and video. We will post the newest works as a post, but the older work will end up in the portfolio.

Our current work is happening at Beachside Community Church in FWB, FL. If you’re in the area, stop by to see it in person – you may even catch our artist there! I’m sure you can also get a tour of the new build as well.
