New Studio/Garage Process 10

Ok, at last I left you with no lights, no paint, no trim, etc. Things have progressed nicely. We're just about ready to move in.

Turman Garage

The main bay just needs to be primed and painted and the floor finished.

Turman Studio

Well, the studio is pretty much ready to go with a very few minor things left. I primed/painted/stained all of the finishing.

I learned a whole lot about epoxy flooring. That stuff is crazy. Whatever you do, don't mix all of it at once. Wow, that stuff was melting the bucket, steaming, smoking, hot to the touch, holy crap, I was freaking out. Long story, and some extra $$$ later, I got it done. I'm now an expert on applying epoxy. ;)

I'm thinking the next post you'll see on this will have actual printing studio stuff inside. Then the "Studio Moving Sale" will proceed. Sweet!

Dana's Skateboard - Part 2 - TV Spot!

Turman - Dana Jacobson Skateboard deck

Ok, so a while back I posted about a skateboard deck I painted for Dana Jacobson of ESPN. Well, I had no idea she was going to do this but... she ended up bringing the deck into the studio and after one of the commercial breaks she showed off the deck. My buddy Lonny Unitus recorded the show for me and I took a little snap shot of her on air holding the deck. They're just so cute together! Thanks Dana!

Woodfellas - Illustrations for Seattle Weekly

Turman - Woodfellas

These are a couple of illos I did for the Seattle Weekly. Apparently they have a couple of dudes who run some strip joints out there and it's a little on the shady side. Cover depicts the movie poster from "Goodfellas."

Another First Avenue Girl Painting

Turman - First Avenue Girl

Yes, another painting of the "First Avenue Girl." This one was done for my buddy Simon, who owns the Lord Nelson and Fulwood pubs in Southwark, London. Quite a mate that Simon! Cheers.

If you are interested in a commissioned painting of something I've previously done or something completely new, please feel free to contact me -

New Studio/Garage Process 7

Electrical roughed in!

I'm pretty proud of myself, I did all the low voltage, mainly cause I had to. We didn't spec the electrician for the little piddly work.

I did the black wiring, and speaker cable.

Dana's Skateboard

Dana Jacobson from ESPN recently contacted me to paint a skateboard deck for a Jimmy V's Cancer Foundation and X Games charity event online auction thing (I'll post a link to in when I found out).

Dana Jacobson Skateboard deck

Here's what I came up with.

Dana gave me a clear direction of what she wanted: "Tons of sports stuff, and make me a football player!" Ok, perfect, done!

I don't paint a whole lot, but I'm really happy with how this one turned out, it was a total blast to do! Thanks Dana.
