Description
Even before Von Dutch and Ed Roth, the ultimate way to personalize your car was to lay wicked lines on top of the paintwork. Pinstripe speaks volumes about both driver and car when done correctly with two necessities: a steady hand and an eye for design. In this book, veteran pinstripe Alan Johnson teaches you everything you need to know to get started, to increase mastery of this art form, or simply to understand how a good design comes about. With a primer on the history and evolution of pin striping, this book launches into a step-by-step guide to the pin striping process - choosing paints, brushes, finding your unique style and technique, preparing surfaces, experimenting with designs both symmetrical and asymmetrical, freehand striping, using grids and patterns.
Author description
Alan Johnson caught the pinstriping bug at age 11, when his father took him to see Ed Big Daddy Roth at the New York Coliseum. After graduating from Newark School of Fine Industrial Art in 1968, Alan landed a job as art director at a New York City ad agency. In 1974 he moved his family to the country and started his own business, which still thrives today. Alan is also a consultant for automotive paint manufacturers and the author of several how-to articles. He recently launched his own line of signature brushes with The Mack Brush Company.
