Here is my list: Paint & Vinyl Artists .

I see now I need to add a few! Thanks for the links.

I am quite surprised Cassatto Airbrushing hasn't been listed yet...

This is Mitcher T's latest creation. He did an awesome job on our boat and was great to work with.

i'm baaaaack!

It's true. I did semi-retire after my wife, Jody, died in 1998. The final straw that led to my hibernation was the constant abuse from Pat "Miller Lite" Houghey, now of Active Sonic Thunder USA. But he's okay once you get past the facade. At least he had the good sense to team up with Jay. And Frank.

Pat really does some fantastic collision work, though. Go see him when you back your BMW into your outdrive. (Seriously, he builds an incredible boat).

Honestly, I think that Chris at Grafik EFX does some solid work. I feel honored to even be mentioned with him and some of the other fine artists out there.

BTW, I didn't major in commercial art- i have a BFA in painting from The Memphis College of Art. Additionally, just to set the record straight, Gail was before me, but I did the first "Fine Art" crazy paint jobs on boats. The "Low Profile" 41 of Ken Denison (1988) was my first McManus Apache.

Thank You for not forgetting about Geo. Mike's gone but I still do top notch work like he has in the past.

My site is www.coolgrafix.net or www.geographicscustompaint.com

Again Thank You and see you around OSO and the odd race site.
