I'm the painter/ manager at Hot Rods and Custom Stuff in Escondido.

I've been where I'm at for 5 years doing high end show cars and hot rods. I am influenced by a lot of the guys on the list, love the 60s/ 70s Kustom and lowrider era. Always trying to paint it a little different than the next guy and always trying to improve. Very excited to be picked, appreciate it and stoked that you guys have this platform. Thank you! Andy

Jason Mattox - Timebomb Kustoms

Location of shop: Bloomington Indiana

Years painting: 10 years



This wild little trip started for me about ten years ago. What started off as a hobby soon turned into a career that involved a lot of travel, hotels, and show after show. I started out by pinstriping cars and helmets mostly, painting monters and shift knobs, and doing a bit of lettering. My true love has always been custom paint. A year ago I bit the bullet and bought an air compressor and a couple of paint guns. The rest is history. I call Bloomington, Indiana home base these days. I travel a lot less and do more custom work out of the shop. Painting helmets and tanks have given new life to the career path that I love so much.

Jon Raleigh - Milwaukee Wisconsin

Years painting: I've  been painting motorcycle tanks for 5 years, but was trained in fine art drawing and printmaking before that.



Hello, I am Jon Raleigh from Milwaukee Wisconsin. Well, ya see, I'm not saying that I've been everywhere and I've done everything, but I do know it's a pretty amazing planet we live on here, and a man would have to be some kind of FOOL to think we're alone in THIS universe.

Awesome work everyone. There isn't a single piece of craftsmanship in this group that isn't pure quality. You all should be very proud! Amazing stuff here!

Very hard to choose, all very good, just different style. I asked the wife to pick the top two, she picked two different than what I did.
