behind the vehicle

What really helps drive me to obtain a higher level of output when it comes to many of my projects, are the people behind it. I have the privilege to place finishing touches on a variety of builds. Being the final ingredient on great in-depth projects with either some graphics, sharp details or a full body vinyl car wrap. I start really seeing these individuals in the creation of their projects. At that point you find who that person is. That is, if you pay attention. Their passion and direction presents itself clearly. Their creative attitude and abilities come out to not only show what the vehicle will be but how its an extension of who they are.

Shane, pictured here, is such a technical artist. His personal abilities mixed with utilization of who and whats around him shows real genius. In this case the project became Shane. Starting from his early Volkswagen Jetta build and transpiring into a couple photo shoots and a write up. The story was larger and included the cars builder. Photo by Matthew Vieweger.

This happens quite often and the people that bring me in to help with their project end up being the focus. Its a beautiful thing when occasionally you look just past the car to whats right there behind it.
