ADVANCED PINSTRIPE ART
by Timothy Remus
the days of Von Dutch, hot rod and motorcycle enthusiasts have used
pinstripes both as stand-alone art, and as a compliment to a flame
or graphic paint job. Timothy Remus uses over 500 color images to
present the work of 11 well-known pinstripe artists. Each chapter
presents one start-to-finish project and an interview with the
artist. The photo sequences take the viewer from the initial sketch
to the finished design. Text explains each step of the artwork, the
interviews explain the artist's choice for paint and brushes. The
artwork, often complimented with gold leaf or airbrush colors, is
done on panels as well as various vehicles and components. Advanced
Pinstripe Art brings the reader into the shop of some of this
country's best pinstripe artists, for an intense and intimate how-to
lesson. This is pinstripe school, taught by masters, brought to your
own home or shop.

Auto Art Magazine
Even before the heyday of Von Dutch and Big Daddy, the ultimate
way to personalize your car or motorcycle was to lay some wicked
lines on top of the paintwork. Done with a steady hand and an eye
for style, pinstripes speak volumes. In How to Pinstripe, acclaimed
veteran striper Alan Johnson teaches you everything you need to know
to get started, to further your mastery of the form, or to simply
understand how a good design comes together. Following a primer on
the history and evolution of pinstriping, this book launches into a
step-by-step guide to the pinstriping process--from choosing paint
and brushes that suit your style and abilities, to preparing
surfaces, experimenting with symmetrical and asymmetrical designs,
striping freehand, and using grids and patterns. While stressing the
importance of finding your own style and having fun with the hobby,
Johnson also explains the basics of color theory and unique
considerations for antique and classic cars, hot rods and customs,
and motorcycles. For more advanced pinstripers, theres also
tried-and-true advice on apprenticing and working car shows.
Illustrated with color photography throughout, How to Pinstripe
is the perfect source for beginners and veterans alike.
