Lightbulb Z4 M Coupe Art Car

For the past 2 and 1/2 months I have been working on a new painting. Scatha is now an Art Car (not to be confused with an "official" Art Car). And she has a new website: www.myartcar.com

If you can, come to Bimmerfest 2011 and see her in person. There is MUCH more detail in the design than cameras can capture.

-Definitely NOT a wrap. Check the website under "The Process" and you can see it evolve step by step.

I did!

You have got to drag your butt over to ZFest in Greenville in September, everyone in the country will want to see the car up close.

Porsche's will run and hide and Lambo's will follow you around like puppy dogs! LOL!!!

I've seen some the "official" art cars in person... Scatha is my favorite.

Wow! I'm a "simple yet elegant" kind of girl but I LOVE this. It is truly a work of art. I am incredibly impressed; you are an extremely talented man.

I remember we were talking about Earl making your car into an art car. Maybe it's time to reconsider...

-Pretty much everyone who saw it touched it. Some kind of compulsion I guess. Not a big deal. The only thing that pissed me off was when a hoochie decided to plant herself on top of the fender/hood for a pic without any thought to the paint, car or owner. I presume she was doing that throughout the show. Worse is that she was wearing a metal-studded belt. Luckily fat ass saved the paint. Everyone else was pretty respectful. I had a FANTASTIC time, very interesting to get feedback from so many viewers. The only people I didn't get any feedback from was BMW NA, who was all of 10 feet away with their transporter. Go figure.

"Hootchie with Fat Ass" You need to invest in some plastic chain and stanchions to rope off the car for display. I am glad it did not suffer and injury's.

BMW NA - "Not thought of here!" You won't get response one out of them, if they acknowledge you did that and later they do one themselves they can't say it was a coincidence. IMHO.


Best regards

For those of you in the LA and SD areas I'll be bringing Scatha to the BMWCCA LA event at Specialized Coatings in Huntington Beach on Saturday, and the BMWCCA SD event at Spanish Landing on Sunday.

That is briiliant. I don't usually like mural style art cars, but I have to say that is very striking. The colors and flow really compliments the lines of the car. There is a lot going on, but amazingly it's not too busy. I like the wireframe effect a lot.

Great job.
