Thanks to the retro trend, pinstriping is back in a big way. From Bobbers to tee-shirts, everything is getting pinstriped. I was even thinking asking my painter to do it on the covers of my laptop and iPod. Artwork in its own right, or as a complement of flames or of any graphics, pinstriping will enrich any paint job and correctly used will emphasize a shape, a form or any part of a bike. But sometimes I am horrified to see beautiful bikes with poor (trembled lines) or inadequate (there are so many different styles, and you must pick the right one) or done incorrectly (tracing a line along taping?!?) pinstriping. As many know, I am very fussy on the quality of my paint jobs, and the truth is there are very few painters who deserve the name of pinstriping artists. By respect for Von Dutch & the hot rod culture, use only these masters. It just happened that 12 of them show you their skills in a book called Advanced Pinstripe Art. Each chapter presents a start-to-finish project done by one artist. These photo sequences take the viewer from the initial sketch to the finished design. Not only entertaining, but also useful to define the best style for your own paint job. Advanced Pinstripe Art should belong to your books collection.
