Aultman Taylor decal project nearing the end.

Just a quick update on the Aultman Taylor decal project. Some of you may remember when I first started the project,  how little I had to go on. Fast forward to today, and you can see the almost finished design. I hand painted the master artwork to a stage where it could be scanned into the computer, and then will finish up using Photoshop and Illustrator. The finished piece will then be digitally printed to create decals, instead of the traditional way of silkscreen and die cutting, that used back in the day. This has been a very detail orientated project, testing both my brush skills, and also my computer skills. I believe you have to be able to master both skill sets to survive in doing this type of work. The nice thing about using the computer, is how much flexibility you have in making changes and tweaks, not to mention, not having to wait for the paint to dry. Here's a few updated pictures of the project. I'll be doing a full re-cap of the entire project in the near future, including a pictures of the finished decal, applied to the tractor. Thanks for dropping in. Funny, when I was a kid, I use to get in a lot of trouble for drawing on my friends wall and whatever I could find, now I get paid for it. Who would have know.
