FX-II
(Because you keep wanting more bitchin effects!!!)

DOLLA BILL

Since us kustom painters are always accused of being greedy bastards,...lets at least make some money from the ridicule. Not only is it a kewl effect. But this is one of the no-brainer stencils that even my cat could spray. The kewl thing about this stencil, is that the way it is laid out, you can get an infinite tiled effect in your graphic. Let them think you spent three days weeding the artwork!

DRAGON SKIN

This is one of my favorites of the new line, and I have used it a bunch. It is based loosely on a type of stencil used for rendering rooftiles, cobblestones, and fish-scales,..besides snakeskin, or dragonskin. The internal patterns are for repeating within a graphic, or masked flame layout, the large curved positives, and negatives allow you to render the scale effect on round objects, and follow a curving graphic. Simply lay and spray. You will be amazed at how fast you can lay this effect down.

GEARHEAD

I used this for the first time in japan on Signals "Drift Skyline" Everyone thought it was either computer vinyled, or hand cut out. While a computer does save time in many situations, I could have sprayed this effect in the graphics of 5 cars before the vinyl on one of them was weeked. Stencils are no better, or worse then any other tool out there for painting. Used properly, the worst stencil can blow away the best freehand, or computer cut design. Just remmber,..right tool for the right job. Stencils do not replace anything, merely accent, and improve.

NUTZ N BOLTZ

With the gearhead fresh in my mind, I wanted to go mechanical in another way, so I sketched out this design. It looks killer as a pearlescent effect, and is very popular amongst the racer boyz out there. I have even seen it used on the interiors of cars as a repeating theme design. Very kewl. Good for point, and shoot work, and even better with a little freehand magic added..

PUZZLED

Another point and shoot no-brainer. But a kewl one. This looks killer in graphics, especially if you use the individual puzzle pieces to have flying around the artwork. It is a simple lineart stencil, but includes a few negatives, and positives to make your life easier.

THE BLOB

Since I have been influenced by the tattoo industry for years, it is only fair that I pay back a little. The Blob is a tribute to the classic ripped skin,...or torn muscle rendering that is famous in the Tattoo industry. A classic filler, or connecting design between tattoos, this pattern also works well in murals, between skulls, or as a background pattern in flames, or any other graphics. A kewl side note: a number of tattoo artists have already told me that they are using it to aid in some of their layouts.
