Many of you may not know this but Simon Watts has been striping forever. Just look at how old he is and you know it's true. He's been featured at one time or another in just about every hot rod magazine in the world. If you've got anything you'd like striped come by and have a chat. It's well worth convincing him to drag out his brushes.

It led to looser a style that eventually influenced my painting style and is now influencing my tattoos. It's kind of different but I think it works and hopefully some of you will find it interesting too and allow me to make a mess on you sometime:)
I loved this fact because it did a couple of things. It helped me overcome my inherent need to nitpick and overthink my art. It really loosened me up creatively and introduced a more subconscious or "Unthinking" element to my work. Instead of trying to be a control freak I totally loosened up in everything I did. From my drawings on up.
Years ago when I was living in London I used to run around in the middle of the night leave my mark. And because the cops don't like you making a mess in that pristine little city, you had to kind of work fast to avoid capture. Having to work fast ended up having a huge influence on how I drew.
