The 13 artists included in book are Dwayne Vance, Brian Stupski, Randy Ricklefs, John Bell, Eric Brockmeyer, Michael Miernik, Max Grundy, Jimmy Smith, James Owens, Justin Chin, Thom Taylor, Larry Wood, and Steve Stanford.

FutureElements Expands

Well I have to say I have had the pleasure of working with a few Deviants on here that have been very talented. I have had to hire other designers to help me out with large scale projects and it has been a blast. I would like to give a big welcome to Hoi
:iconnumioh:

He has joined me for a more permanent position to help with all the entertainment work FutureElements has been doing. I started FutureElements a year ago now and things have gone very well. Hoi will be a great asset to the team and I am very excited to have him on board. The workload has increased a lot and I have had the pleasure of working on several movies and doing the pre visuals for them. Hoi really has some serious talent and can draw mechs like no other. So if you haven't seen his page yet go check it out. His stuff is sick and I hope to be as good as him some day.

Sorry for the lack of post, mostly do to being so busy. I am also launching a book in January of all my Hot Rod art along with a few other Hot Rod artist. It will have loads of new stuff in it. I will post it here when it comes out. Thanks and take care everybody

New Hot Rod Art and Pics of Rods

Hey I figured I would show you guys what some of my latest prints look like. They are done all on metal this time. I am only doing a run of 15 because of all the work and cost involved. I posted the process and all the materials I use to create the art. The photos don't do it justice at all. They are much more impressive in real life. Here is the link to go check it out Metal Prints


I also uploaded some pics from the LA roadster show here.

Hi everyone,

I just received this and I am sure a lot of you will hear about it eventually. So please read and it affects all of us ad artist and designers. Listen to the MP3 and it explains everything. Long story short people will be able to use our artwork however they want if we don't stop this now.

The message below will be self-explanatory. There is an important issue facing us as artists, related to the copyrights of our works, which corporations wish to control and take at our expense. You could lose ownership of the art you create.  We must put a stop to this immediately unless you wish to see others owning and plagiarizing your art.   


This is too important to ignore please participate and forward to your others.

Congress is rushing these bills through to a floor vote. The House will start marking up their version of the bill at 2:00 today; the Senate will do so tomorrow. To try to stop this bill, we first need to slow down the race to get it passed.

FROM THE ILLUSTRATORS' PARTNERSHIP

Take Action: Don't Let Congress Orphan Our Work

We've set up an online site for visual artists to e-mail their Senators and Representatives with one click.

This site is open to professional artists, photographers and any member of the image-making public.

We've provided sample letters from individuals representing different sectors of the visual arts.

If you're opposed to the Orphan Works act, this site is yours to use.

For international artists and our colleagues overseas, we've provided a special link, with a sample letter and instructions as to whom to write.


2 minutes is all it takes to write Congress and protect your copyright:

Don't let Congres Pass ORPHAN WORKS BILL!

Journal Entry: Thu May 8, 2008, 11:52 AM
Very Important info for all artist!! Congress is trying to pass a bill that will affect all of us!!!

Hey I just received some very important info that is very important as an artist we fight against. Long story short, Congress is trying to pass a bill that will not allow us to keep the rights to our work. It would allow any corporation or any business to use our work in any way. They could come onto Deviant find work they like and use it. They say that if we want to protect our work we would have to registrar it with a registry that doesn't exist and we would have to pay to protect every piece of work we do. Every sketch every doodle and if we didn't then anyone could use however they want.

This is too important to ignore please participate and forward to your others.

Got to share a few things.

2d artist magazine did an interview with me for the current issue. They asked me some really good questions plus the mag is really cool. I got a subscription and it is very well done. You get free Photoshop and painter brushes and they interview some really talented artist, I felt very humbled in their presence. They also have some great tutorials. Here is a link if your interested in reading the article. Interview It is about 8mb so be patient it has a lot of my artwork and a new piece I did for the article.By the way thank you to everyone who has left comments I have been reading them I just can't reply to them. I have over 1000 messages so it's a little hard to get to all that. I officially launched my business as well and sent out a press release and things have started off very well, in fact I have recruited a few people on Devaint to help me out. If your interested I still have a few prints left of the two Hot Rods so let me know if your interested in purchasing them.  Thanks again for all the comments!
