1940 Woody



This is a 40 Woody that I just completed for a local t-shirt printer. The shop is called Hot Dots, and the owner, Ed, commissioned this for a little project he is putting together, and when all the bugs get worked out, I'll see if I can write a little more about it. But for now, I'll just have to keep the particulars to myself. As for Ed, he has been doing this for a while, and it shows. His office is slammed with all kinds of hot rod art and memorabilia. His walls and shelves are literally covered with old car mags, die cast models, rat fink statutes, and everything else in between. For a car nut like me, It's fun just to look around the office. But the one thing that really catches my eye, is his example pile in the far northern corner of the room. This is a drafting table where he keeps his print examples. Different type of screen designs, and direct print samples pretty much cover the once used art table. Looking though these shirts and swatches, is sort of like reading a resume. The work he does is top shelf, and the artists he employ are really a cut above the average "hot rod-freak with a crayon", like me. I thought I knew what I was doing, until spending a few minutes with Ed, Now I'm sure of only one thing - I've got a lot to learn, about everything.
