5 Ball Racing Team Art


Art for t-shirts, hats, and stickers

This above art was done for Keith Ball's (Bandit of Bikernet.com), Bonneville efforts. At first he used the design below but, then he asked me to modify a unused design originally proposed for the Chop 'n' Grind team.


The first design. As usually Keith wanted a pin-up


The original Chop N' Grind art


Digital color study

The designs were kept simple using only black, orange, and yellow to keep the printing cost down for the t-shirts and stickers. The color study was later done for a painted version I did for Michael Litcher's Stay Gold show in Sturgis. After the painting came back from Sturgis, I wanted to do some additional work on it. When I get the time, I'll post the complete procedure (step by step), of the painting process on Bikernet and a link on this site.
