Custom Motorcycle. Built It First. Have It Sketched After.

jeffcarr1jeffcarr2As it should be Jeff Carr in PA is proud of his custom motorcycle. So, last Christmas his wife gave him a commissioned drawing of his bike by Jamie D. Boyd, an artist from Ontario, Canada. Jeff tells me that the drawing from this photo took the artist 4 months of work and re-work. Worth a blurb in my Blog. Need a drawing of your prize possession?

    I would like to thank Cyril Huze for putting the drawing that was done for Jeff Carr, as Jamie Boyd is my husband. The Custom Motorcycle and the drawing look great side by side. It takes my Husband so much time to do one, but the outcome at the end with the detail shows you all that the motorcycle is. To have an original you can see Jamie’s pencil in the paper, showing every detail of craftsmanship of the custom motorcycle that the owner can enjoy.
    Thanks again,

    I saw the actual bike and the actual drawing, and the drawing is so perfect, it is hard to believe that someone could do such a beautiful picture.

    I have known for a while about his talent but I was not aware of how much he would go through to do a job. I have a couple of his drawings myself and am very proud to show them to all of my friends and family.

    I just don’t get it , why do I need a ” drawing ” of one of my bikes ? 4 months to do a sketch ? some people have more money the brains . ride the freaking thing and stop looking at it .

    Jamie did a great job. I am very happy with drawing. The detailing is insane. You can actually read the serial numbers off the motor and the numbers on the tires. He didn’t miss a thing. My wife just sent him a bunch of pictures and he did the rest. I think it came out great. Thanks Jamie.

    Thanks Jeff,
    Besides the cash, my reward is knowing that someone appreciates my work.

    Hey RUB ! What’s not to get ? It’s my bet that you do your grocery shopping at Walmart and an evening of fine dining consists of a tube steak and a soda at your neighbourhood 7/11. It must have been a proud day for you when finally didn’t have to wear your helmet to ride on the short, red bus to go to school. I can hear the banjo music playing now. If you actually took your blinders off and opened your mind, you may realize that there are some people in this world that appreciate the finite work that others are able to achieve. It called “art” just in case you were wondering. As far as your “4 months to do a sketch comment”, Dok probably does more in four months than you do in a decade. Apart from raising four daughters (age ranges from pre-school to high school), he runs his own contracting business of constructing anything from an outhouse to a premier log home, often supplying the lumber he needs from his own mill. Then there’s the three HOGS in the toybox next to the Pony car that needs to be beat on (once the snow melts away for another season), and let’s not forget the ’32 Ford roadster project on the go. Then there’s the ’71 KZ Triple that’s been partially restored, not too mention the tractor, the snow machine and the quad runners that all need maintenance from time to time. 4 months is only 120 days when you break it down. The sketch that I am so fortunate to have been done by Jamie was a concept rather than a finshed product of the finshed project. The detail that comes expicitly from his pencil is stellar bar none. Top shelf by far. Now that I have the desired platform to do my project you can certainly bet that once it’s completed there will be another sketch of the finished project. Just one last thing – we make a habit of getting out there and riding – it’s our religion.

    If Jamie would like to list his rates I’m sure Cyril would let him do so. It’s my understanding it’s on a case by case basis depending on what you want and how big, etc.

    Jamie Boyd’s pictures and talent are amazing! He should have his own website so people could see all of his drawings and be able to purchase them. I bought a drawing for my dad as a birthdya present and he proudly displays it right above his TV so he can look at it every day.

    looks like everybody in Jeff Carr’s family is jumping in on this one . Hey Johnny Mac Carr, isn’t the internet great . you can play johnny bad azz running your mouth and not get your lights knocked out . By the way , how much coin did you throw down for your concept ” drawing ” . I can send you one with numbers on it so you can do the coloring yourself . How’s $2000 sound , interested ?

    I guess we’re always gonna have people that dont appreciate art. I’m pretty sure Jamie isnt losing sleep over it. I’m glad Cyril posted the blog about Jamie and his talent. In Cyril’s own words, “Worth a blurp in my blog.” Hope to be hearing more from Jamie in the future.

    As for the rest of you… since we’re all related I guess i’ll see you at Easter.

    4 months for a sketch… we could build 4 bikes in that amount of time!
