• BOMONSTER and Gene Winfield Hang the Same Art

    bo-blog-winfield-print

    Gene Winfield is legendary among generations of hot rodders and custom car fabricators. Well into his eighties, he travels the world giving metal fabrication cutting and welding classes, painting cars and signing autographs. I live near his California shop but it doesn't matter because I see him at every show I vend at. I created the above piece of art for him featuring his Mojave desert shop, his custom Cadillac "Maybellene," the movie car "Reactor," Jade Idol and his '27 T dry lakes racer. In the foreground he's shown driving his Pacifica concept truck with a pin up girl and welding tank in the front seat. He liked it, endorsed it and I printed it. You can purchase it here.

  • BOMONSTER Experiences the End Times

    bo-blog-rain-dogs-flap

    I met Flap and her friends out in the Mojave desert behind Gene Winfield's place. They were out enjoying the sun with their Mad Max style "earth cruiser" purpose-built rides. "Cars for the end times" I called them. Hers was an '87 Pioneer but I thought it looked more like the 2027 model.

  • BOMONSTER Digs Kellisons

    bomonster yellow kellison j5

    I dig Kellisons. Maybe because I have one but I really dig Kellisons when they are finished because I don't have one. Mine is unfinished and rough and so when I see a nice one finished I feel all at once jealous and inspired. Tom Duttrey from Olympia Washington was driving his 1961 J5 just days after finishing his. I had seen it earlier online for sale without the graphics and liked it but I thought it need just one thing to finish it off - a BOMONSTER sticker.

  • BOMONSTER Rides in The Krowvette

    bo-blog-2-krowvette

    Corvettes are funny. Everyone likes the 50s and 60's cars - and the new one - but you don't hear much about the early 70's models. The 80's and 90's cars made everyone forget about the brand but I always liked the 70's 'Vettes. I had never been in one but I always liked the way it looked. My lifelong friend Joe Krow lives up in Washington and bought a really nice one so we went up to see it and go for a drive. It was smoother, quieter and faster than I thought it would be. Definitely worth the trip.

  • BOMONSTER Drives into the Ocean

    bomonster-trailer-on-beach

    When you're from California, you don't go to the ocean much because there are usually too many people and not enough parking. But that's not a problem in Ocean Shores, Washington. It's a friendly, foggy little beach town near the Quinault Indian reservation. The most amazing thing to me is that you can drive on the beach for miles. And our BOMONSTER trailer follows us everywhere.

  • BOMONSTER Gets Kicks on Route 66

    bo-blog-2-blue-swallow-hotel

    Road trips inspire. We happened along this cool New Mexico hotel on a Route 66 journey and I thought it was the perfect setting to scratch a new piece of BOMONSTER art using an old '36 Ford hot rod stopped under the light of the hotel sign to check the oil. Inside the car, the girl calls about a room while their old dog takes a break next to the warm car. This limited edition litho print is available by clicking here.

  • BOMONSTER Graffiti Gets Tagged

    bo-blog-cadillac-ranch

    Outside of Amarillo, TX sits the Cadillac Ranch -  an art installation of ten pristine used Cadillacs planted in a field by a group of artists named Ant Farm along Route 66 in 1973. Since then a million visitors have painted, pounded, ripped off, cut tires, kicked in windows and generally trashed a cool thing. Since I can't undo what's been done I added to the graffiti with traveling artist friends Jack, Nancy (shown), and their traveling executive assistant Emma - who I call "Pink." I spent a few minutes adding my signature BOMONSTER face and stood back to admire my own work and watched a family of Iowa farmers (not shown) walk up to my masterpiece and tag it with their own uncreative squiggles. My "art" didn't last two minutes before it was tagged. Before I could think too much about it, it dawned on me that I had covered up someone else's work who had covered someone before them and so on and so forth all the way back to the original artists who had planted the cars in the first place. It was a short lived thrill.

  • BOMONSTER Gets Face Painted by Squindo

     

    bo-blog-squindo

    If you're a fan of Metallica you know Tony Squindo's art. He's the unofficial official artist for the band.  BOMONSTER doesn't have an unofficial official artist but if I did, it would be Squindo. He presented me with this portrait and it made me instantly want to put out a record and use it as the cover. But I have no music talent so it'll just hang on my wall instead.
