    That'd be fun! I could finally work at something I like to do for a change.

    I know which artist you remind me of... I thought I saw a hint of "Roth" in your work, but now I know that it's really Kelly Freas!!! (Seriously!)

    I'll have to look up who Kelly Freas is, I've never heard that name before.

    But as far as the Roth 'hint' goes, even though I'm somewhat familiar with his cartoons and custom vehicles, I never think of his stuff when I make the guitars, but I highly respect him as a designer who's creative mind worked 'out of the box' in his time, so any connection to him, even vaguely is flattering to me.

    If someone wants to see a little 'Roth' influence in something I've done...it's undeniably present in some of my T-shirt art such as my 'Scooter Madness' design.....though it's still quite a bit milder than a lot of his 'Ratfink' designs..

    This one is my favorite of all you've posted. Beautiful and practical looking at the same time. Gorgeous!

    Lovely... haha.. your designs seem to have a Jetson feels to it. Very cool retro vibe to the guitars :)
