One of the many romantic concepts of the car culture I enjoy is honouring the traditions of the past.
As we explore new ideas through builds by way of speed and design we will always reference the past in one shape or form.
Pinstriping is a classic example, this art form is the medium of painting lines to draw attention, embellish and highlight the shapes or forms of a vehicle. Pinstriping’s history started before the running engine and today remains a sought out detail to embellish ones ride desired by car enthusiasts.
Liquorice my Little KIA Soul has been my source of pride and freedom because she helps keep my blog alive by transporting me to events and adventures here on Vancouver Island.
It was only a matter of time for Liquorice to earn her stripes and to have her name properly displayed.
The art of pinstriping is something I have admired for as long as I can remember, it was appropriate now that I honour the tradition too.
I believe here on the Island we are very lucky to have very technically skilled Tradesmen, Craftsmen and Artists close at hand. What always sets these people apart is their passion.
I was grateful when my path crossed with Matt. As you can see for yourself we have a real solid contributor to our community. How lucky are we…!
Wether you know Matt in person or not you will undoubtedly know his work as his hand has touched many surfaces.
For Liquorice, I left all creative licence to Matt with simple direction of names and he went straight to working his magic.
I am really thrilled with the end results and super happy to see the different items Matt has striped.
At the recent Grease, Gears and Grooves event Matt was set up doing on the spot work like this 5420 for Christian Dobell, lead Guitarist and Singer for the The Hell Katz.
Matt also did the custom paint and striping of the prize fridge and bench for the events raffle and the prizes for the Car show, both which were hosted by Vancouver Island Chapter of The Roadmen Car Club.
It does not matter what you own yet beauty is often found in the details, so may I suggest getting Matt to detail something for you.
