    Thanks....do you know of any similar software for a PC?
    I think you have excellent skills and creativity.

    Well the equivalent to keynote would be powerpoint on a pc. I haven't used a pc in a long time so I am not sure of it's design capabilities. Photoshop or Illustrator would be the programs of choice, but more complex to learn.

    I am pretty solid in both Powerpoint and Photoshop and could see where you could combine the virtues of each to create what you did by importing shapes. I thought there maybe another PC related illustration software out there...maybe not.

    Adobe Illustrator is probably best for 2D illustration.

    I like the Gulf and the first Martini designs the best.

    Gulf may be played out, but the Gulf 917K is so imprinted on my mind since childhood that it's hard to pass up.

    Maybe the Mark Donahue Blue Sunoco livery from the Trans Am days?

    Orange Jagermeister BMW?

    I do like the Sunoco colors as well. That could be interesting.

    Mike,
    Would something like the rust scheme you show only be doable as a one of a kind? Can't believe say a run of 200 would be doable because of the intricacy of such a paint job. What do you think?

I know beauty is all in the eyes of the beholder though.


    Do you have any more details of the McLaren paint job? That's possibly the most amazing thing I've ever seen. Ever.

    Thanks!

    Thought of the pink pig, but would be more appropriate on the Shiv

    Don't have any details, just know it was featured on the Paint My Bike Facebook page which is a company in Australia that does lots of custom paint jobs.

    Tough to say, I am sure it would be possible to do on a larger scale, but not something most the current bike companies seem to want to take on. A few years ago, I always thought it would be an awesome idea for some of the bike companies to have an "art" series. Specialized is kinda doing this now with the McLaren, and now some of their rider editions which are limited number frames. I think it would be awesome to have some art designs, where they only made 5 or 10, even 20. Make them very limited, and let the rarity and artistic appeal of the frame sell it to those special riders who are looking for something a little different.

    OP I love your designs and work, can't wait to see what you come up with. I'm about to strip my roubaix down and give it a little bit of love with the paint *** as well.
