Drivin’ me wild


This is the most recent photo of the Mercedes Pens with additional pens glued to the sun roof. It was shot at the marina in Berkeley during Art Car Fest 2007 on the last day after How Berkeley can you be parade. Harrod Blank author of the Art cars book asked me if he could take pictures of the car.

Also there was a recent article by Len Vinas and Jessica Barcenilla posted in the Golden Gate Xpress called Drivin’ me wild. It features the Mercedes Pens, Darwin, Eartha Karr and the Sashimi Tabernacle Choir Artcars at the recent Artcar fest 2007. Check the multimedia button on the upper right hand corner.

New Fake Grass Interior in Mercedes Pens


Memorial day monday I completed the Mercedes Pens interior using AstroTurf Type Fake Grass. I Bought a nice 6×9 piece from Home Depot, and with enough hot glue and staples I lined each interior panel and the carpet with it. Took me all afternoon by I did it, and sure beats that nasty old grey dirty carpet that the car came with.


I also finished decorating my dashboard with all the nice pens. A little velcro on the back of each pen allows it to stick to the cover.

And a special thanks to Mark who not only put a link to his blog epromos blog but sent me a box of really nice Zig Zag Lite Pen. I gave them all away and then one day they will all come back, empty:)

Mercedes Pens Door Finished Using Gel Pens


I finally finished my first door panel on the Mercedes Pens Ar Car. I managed to bend a whole bunch of Gel Pens with a heat gun and glue them on the painted door panel in the shape of a tree with 100% Clear silicone. I wanted to see how much further I could take my art using pens. And this time I was able to go a step further by combining acrylic painting as a backdrop for the 3D pen sculpture mounted on the door. One down three more doors to go.

Mercedes Pens Door Pannel Getting a Face Lift

Here is the driver side door panel witch I decided to paint over because the “Mercedes Grey” wasn’t working for my mood. Grey is fine if the rest of the car is grey and your into that sort of drab depressing color. Since my car now is a tad more cheery than that, I decided to paint. This scene has got to be my favority, calm peacefull, full of posibilities. It also represnents growth and hope for the future. The next step is to create a tree created by benting pens with a heat gun and glued right over this scene. I started yesterday and I hope to have this beauty mounted back on the door by the end of the week. Stay tuned.
