Should i tell her ?
Seriously, i've been collecting since i was eighteen, still working on my back, it's a tribute to someone i really loved but passed away, decided to leave us and never had the chance to get that dragon done, guess it was a cool thing to get it for him.
I'm proud in a way, sorry too, my burden,my pain.

Pinstriper, signpainter, photographer, copywriter, mechanic, Scraper*, gearhead, but most of all a great creative artist.
What it comes down is this;
Any surface that paint will stick to can be transformed
into a work of art
when undergoing the ElCheapo treatment,
you can expect a style and design that is inspired by the stuff that surrounds him: Cars, Kustoms, Cool motorcycles, Musical instruments, Roadtrips, Beercans, Tools, Garages , Grease, Gasoline,Oil (you'll get it by now..)and will reflect the bare basics of the scene and the people involved.
Besides his skills and creativity he's a great guy too !
Amazing to see the pinstriping art in progress, lines, perfectly shaped, coming together in a reflected/symmetric pattern, the artist is somehow restricted in the build up of the pattern due to the fact that he needs his fingers in the process, thinking ahead..
I believe that pinstriping is more than adding some lines of paint, the whole design and choice of colours must add something to the whole object being pinstriped, balanced.
One thing that amazes me that EC can still paint those tight lines after a good night of partying hard, amazing, really !
One Kool artist's toolbox !
Kustom tight space lettering ? No problems !
Visit ElCheapo on http://eckw.blogspot.com/ or on http://elcheapo.telenet.be/ to see more of his impressive work, or to contract him to have some real artwork done on your car, Kustom, bike(human or engine powered) or basically anything that has something like a surface that paint will stick on.
*A Scraper refers to a person being member of the Scrapers Car Club

Back in the eighties, we had this huge house with a huge backyard.
Unfortunately we couldn't pave parts of the backyard so our dream skate park never came.
So my brother (+RIP) switched to BMX-ing, from pieces of scrap he'd built this ramp and practiced, practiced and practiced some more.
Eventually, when we travelled to one of the ramps that where within range he'd take his bike and got pretty good at riding vertical.
Pretty cool back then, BMX-ers and skaters sharing a ramp.
Picture taken by my brother, scan from print.

Purpose was to get some clear instructional shots for an article in flyfishing magazine.
This guy knows his way with a flyrod, he's a certified instructor and in my opinion one -if not so the- of the best casters in our country and beyond.
Cannot display more untill the article is "up".
Check out his website, if you're into this stuff, he's the guy to contact to boost your flycasting skills
Film dude, Film !

Actually, i was amazed by the quality of the scan, funny, using an chemical process and end up with a digital result, kinda foolish if you really think about it.
Mamiya 645 1000s, Ilford delta 400
Shot @ bottrop 2007
The camera doesn't have a built in light meter, i usually bring a digital cam along to measure light to get correct exposure settings, my amount of respect grows and grows for those photographers that worked on film, jeez, imagine a reporter, knowing his camera and the way film behaves, knowing certain light-conditions, being able- out of experience- to work without a light meter whatsoever, working fast, changing film...imagine a reporter on a tight time schedule, working on film, capturing an event, deciding what film to use for the available lighting conditions (no, not flicking a switch here to set your iso, film remember?) racing home, developing, printing and showing up with the result, dude ! That-my friend- are the true craftsmen !
And you thought you had skills? Think about it ! Twice....
