Custom frame painters in SoCal - recommendations?

Hello,

I am wondering if anyone can recommend a SoCal based painter who can do some custom work on a carbon frame?

I have a fairly solid idea about what I'd like it to look like (rather, what the concept will be), and would like to find a local artist, who has done this before, that I can work with.

Thank you.

Jim Cunningham at Cyclart https://www.cyclart.com he's good for old school slot cars also. Joe Bell or JB as most people refer to him, he's probably one of the best, if you've ever seen a custom Rivendell, you've seen his work, then there's Brian Baylis in Santee/El Cajon area. Jim and Brian got their start at Masi during the 70's. All do excellent work.

Those are some wild paint jobs. I especially like the green camo.
