To sum up my e-mail it went like this:
"OMG! Giddy, giddy, giddy! What a surprise!! OMG...freak out."
(well, not really, but it WAS enthusiastic with lots of exclamation points.)
I asked him 3 questions:
- Do you spot cars and create? or do you prep them?
- Was this your truck or someone else's?
- Do you have a hidden camera inside to watch reactions? (because ours were probably pretty funny)
He took time out of his day to write me back and answered all of these!! So, I thought I would share.
#2 - This truck was his friend's who lives in Texas. It was done for Killeen's "Take 190 West" art festival that was on March 2nd.
#1 - He prepped the side window to do another one but the weather won and he only got the back done.
#1 - For events, (yes, you can hire him...DO IT and invite me, k?) he has a special method for preparing vehicles but claimed he still loves the "natural canvas" of a really dirty car. (I LOVE THAT!!!) He also confessed to drawing a silly face on a car at his work building because he couldn't resist. (LOVE THAT TOOOO!) He respects people's property and doesn't want to do too much on a car without permission but sometimes can't help it. (Who wouldn't love to walk to their car and see something??)
I give you permission!!
and now....#3 - no camera but he did say he loved the idea! (awesome! I think Sandi gets credit for the camera idea - def something she would think of..haha) He talked about a show with his ideas but I will keep those his secret and not ruin anything and keep my fingers crossed it happens. It would be so fun to watch!
I borrowed this image from a www.neatorama.com story because I like to see faces of people I read/write about.
Kind e-mail, kind smile, awesome art, awesome day!
