Since the days of Von Dutch, hot rod and motorcycle
enthusiasts have used pinstripes both as artwork in its own right, and as
a compliment to a flame or graphic paint job. Interest in pinstriping,
both how-to and as an art form, continues to grow. The best way to learn
something is from the person who does it all day long. Advanced Pinstripe
Art presents the work of 12 well-known pinstripe artists. Each chapter
presents a start-to-finish project done by one artist. These photo
sequences take the viewer from the initial sketch to the finished design.
Text explains the why of good pinstriping - for example, why use a
particular brush, a certain paint, or an unusual method. Quotes from the
artists are plentiful for great advice from practice. Advanced Pinstripe
Art is designed to duplicate, as much as possible, the experience of
spending a day learning first hand how to pinstripe from some of the best
artists in the business.
