• 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.

  • BOMONSTER at the GNRS 2016

    The Grand National Roadster Show is always the show that kicks off our year of traveling to shows to sell my BOMONSTER art & apparel. Since it's held in January there is always the chance of rain and cold weather. But being in Southern California, there's always the chance it will be a perfect weekend too. This year we got both - perfect weather on Fri & Sat and rain on Sun. Crowds came all three days to check out the 10 buildings of show cars and when the rains came, I had a chance to get some pictures...

  • BOMONSTER At a Show and Ends Up In a Film

    If you like live rockabilly music in the desert in winter then you'll like the Havasu Rockabilly Reunion in February. We showed up to sell my BOMONSTER art and apparel and ended up in a video by Jonathan Belda and Adam Deluca. They put a mic on and pointed the camera at me and asked me why I was there. I thought about it for a split second and realized it's all the other people there who make any event a good one or not. Havasu is a good one.

  • BOMONSTER's "Visiting Mercury"

    visitng-mercury

    I like to create visual ideas in which there is a bit of discovery within the picture. At first glance what makes this image work is the surface of the moon and the direction of light across the craters. The astronaut emerges from his capsule in anticipation of being the first person in the world to walk where no man has been before. But wait a minute...what's that in the background? A slammed, chopped, metalflake, custom '50s Merc? A car ahead of its time?

  • BOMONSTER's Kellison Sighting

    kellison-malibu

    If you know what you're looking for, you'll see my primer gray 1964 Kellison Astra X-300GT behind a bunch of very expensive and collectable exotic cars. Near the Emory 356 Outlaw, in front of the garaged '32 Ford hot rod, way behind the Rolls next to the 959 and 911 Porsches and vintage Studie. A beast in the mix of beauties. We were all invited by a friend who loves cars and the turnout at his home overlooking the Pacific Ocean was spectacular. Jay Leno was there in a Gullwing Mercedes survivor and I asked him if he had ever owned a Kellison - since one was advertised with the claim that it was his at one time. He hadn't - which means I have a car so rare even Jay Leno doesn't have one.

  • BOMONSTER Roll Model

    bomonster-david-mann

    I was asked by the promoters of Chopperfest to create a BOMONSTER piece inspired by David Mann's "Day Moon." I don't like to "borrow" too much from another artist but then I had the idea of adding a million bikes behind the original Mann chopper couple representing all the artists and bike builders who were inspired by "The Mann." The promoters loved the idea, the legal owners of the original art loved the idea and that was all I needed to start scratching. I call it "Roll Model."

  • BOMONSTER Likes These Bikes

    bikes-panheadbikes-iron-head-back

    Being the artist, pictures tell stories without words. When I came across these old school vintage Harley Ironhead and Panhead choppers at the Hot Rod Reunion I had to stop and soak it in. Bikes strapped down with dufflebags, tarps, jackets, sleeping bags. It says freedom, adventure, back to basics, pure fun, independence, brotherhood, America, all in one visual.
