EST

EST Handed off my next book “Boneyard” to the publisher this weekend. All junkyard/derelict aircraft work, from 2006 to 2018. It’s gonna be so bitchen. This one was in my book “Night Vision” so it didn’t make the cut for the new one, but it sure freshened up nice using modern editing techniques. 1970s Northwest […]

X-mas Gas

Between my holiday obligations and the cloudy, rainy weather, I wasn’t able to get away to take pix for the full moon this month. Instead, I stayed home and made the same painting 15 times as gifts for some of the VIPs in my life. Here’s a shot of 10 of them. All the joy […]

Imperial Cloaca

Imperial Cloaca With the disappearance of over 100 Chrysler Imperials at the “Imperial Acres” junkyard, I wanted to share this detail shot I made in there a year or two ago in tribute. The key is still in the trunk lock, ready to go.  On the surface, the idea that they were all scrapped is […]

Fish

Scratched into the back door of a 1960-ish Chrysler Imperial, on the lot at Big M.  Maybe it was the owner’s dog’s name and he always sat with his head out this window.  Red, white and green from the Protomachine flashlight, in 51 seconds of deep shade, at night.

Overnight Sensation

Overnight Sensation

Restored ’58 Plymouth Inside the barn at Big M.  “Hey John, what’s that big pile of records?” “Those were mine when I was a teenager.”  Right on top was one of my personal favorites from the ’70s: Frank Zappa’s “Overnight Sensation.”  One of the all-time great surrealist album covers too.  All I had to do […]
