Hewey, I may have seen that book a good while back. It really is a cool book if it's the one I'm thinking of. I really never thought of doing a pinup painting, but it's a good idea. Maybe one day, I'll get the nerve up. I never used to paint faces, but I'm enjoying it now. Thanks for the tip!

Here's the skateboard piece for the Self-Propelled Show at A Stuart Gallery. It's enamel and chrome bullets on a skateboard blank



...and here's the latest commissioned painting that even further feeds my Munsters fixation! I hope you like it....

Thanks so much, tiki5-0, Monkeyman and Tikiwahine. I do miss being here as much... I don't have as much surfing time as I did before because my work schedule has changed totally and I'm busier. I guess I can't really complain about that....

Thanks, Johnny P. The Herman is on the smooth side of masonite. I actually like painting on the textured side better now, but this was ordered to match my Grandpa's Speed Shop painting which I painted when I was experimenting with the smooth side. Other surfaces I like to paint on are stretched canvas and baked enamel aluminum.

Nice and nice. Al and Fred never looked so good. So, when is Lily due to be immortalized in One Shot? You can't do GrandPa and Herman and not paint Lily. Full figure, please. Great work Sam.
