Here's some more pinstriping I've been messing with. The first panel is from the inside of the ZZ Top Eliminator album.

Nice work. Do you do hand lettering?

I'm doing a tow truck in Freeport and my hand lettering skills have vastly diminished from lack of practice.

Rip, hand lettering is on my list of skills to learn, but I've only been playing with the pinstriping at the moment. I lettered the ZZ Top logo using my vinyl cutter to make a stencil, then used a lettering brush with One Shot to fill it in. There was actually a small amount of skill involved because I had to do some free hand where the yellow and red meet. If you need a vinyl cut stencil made for your lettering job, let me know and I'll cut it for you.

Trublu, if it helps, I'll pay for the stencils...... I don't want you to think I expect them for free.

Ripper, yea, I can do that vinyl stencil for you. Lettering like that is super easy as all I have to do is type it in, adjust it to your size and cut. If you know the font style, that would be very helpful. All I need is how big you want the lettering. Let me know and I'll cut it today. As far as paying for it, you can buy me a beer. Let me know ASAP as I'm leaving for South Carolina on Thurs to attend Dru Blair's airbrush school. You can email me at jtairbrushart@aol.com and I'll give you my phone number.
