As for lettering artists, Jeff Devey, Eric Reyes, John Pugh, Brian Schofield, Lane Walker and Braun Bleamer—not to mention local legends Dennis Smith, Robert Cosgrove and Scottie Kania. And let’s not forget Glen Weisgerber. These are all designers/letterers who hammer out amazing work every day. I’m fortunate to call all of them my friends. That still inspires me.

I also get a lot of inspiration from the motorsports, motocross, mountain bike, downhill mountain bike and snowboarding worlds. To me, that’s the cutting edge of the industry. The bicycle world has some of the best color schemes and color combinations. They use amazing fonts and effects. It’s a great industry to get ideas from. Take a look at the clothing, too—great scallops and panels and colors. This can all work into your vehicle graphics.
