a friend of mine hooked me up with some seventies naked beauties, that led me to the idea of paying a tribute to wes by copying some hand drawns from his book...

this is a work in progress...

Here's a graphic I did yesterday using the "Wes technique", pen outline then photoshoping in the color.  This one is going to be rice papered on to future NLC boards, and I am really proud of how it turned out.

You should be proud Ryan! That would also make good tattoo flash art. Where's Barnett???

I'm honored! I found it, painted it and sent it and the next day found out that 4/13 was Wes' birthday. How cool was THAT?

A Wes Homage ... seen by some before.

But even though I am a working artist and have many of my own ideas ... this (tailored to me) is PROUDLY my only tattoo ... I would just hope that Wes approves ... or at least he does not want to cut my arm off and pummle me with it.

I had been wanting and planning this for 30 years!

   Wes

 I was stoked when I stumbled across the dog on eGay. Just a natural for you! I haven't painted anything that small in years. The eyes are fading.

 The pinstriped board you mention was supposed to be my "play" board. It is set up with old school Megatron trucks and a set of 70mm Krypto Hawaii wheels we got at Town & Country Surf Shop in Wikikki (sp?) I was supposed to attend a pinstriping panel jam a couple years ago but my stepdad was in a nursing home dying with cancer. I took the wheels & trucks off and sent the deck and a good friend from Canada had several of the guys lay some lines on it. Each guy used a different color. The Rat Fink was painted by Joe Sulpy Sr., the host of the jam. They put so much work and love into it that I didn't want to bust it up.

 Sorry to run on and on, but it's just a way of giving thanks for the kindness and consideration of others.... Here's a link to the page, the pinstriped board is toward the bottom. http://www.weirdtrip.com/Skate/
