My art, race helmet design and painting have been my passion for over twenty years. Countless hours learning my craft, times when I was just building this business and just scraping by are all made worth it when I received letters like this. I designed and paint Derek’s Bell race helmet years ago he looked me up recently and sent me the following letter.
I just happened to run across your website while searching for my name online… Just a little vanity check… Though I stopped racing a few years ago and have rid myself of all of my old helmets, driving gear and other things associated with the sport, I still CHERISH the artwork you created on my last helmet and it sits PROUDLY in my office…
You have a VERY special talent and artistic eye that is rare. And can take this compliment from someone who spent 35 years in the motion picture, television industry as an artists (cinematographer) in his own right…
Very best to you, and thank you again.
