“Thousands of people were watching me airbrush.” Along with the watching came lots of questions & job offers. “Here I am, in California, the Mecca of the custom automobile revolution & I told everyone that I was from the right coast, New York.”

I was asked to speak on ERN nationally broadcast radio shows, live from the auction. The discussions were about my history as an artist, the Motion Performance era & of course my reasons for being at the BJ Auction. Of course I gave all the companies a plug, I wasn’t born yesterday!

The event was fun & a big success; therefore I have re-signed to do another completely new piece of airbrush art at the Las Vegas NV, show September 20th.
Look for Gary at the Pep Boys booth!
