Sharpie Motorcycle Helmet by PinstripeChris Sharpie Motorcycle Helmet by PinstripeChris
Just got a customers helmet in the mail for some artwork to be done and thought I'd share the last Sharpie Helmet I did. This is done completely freehand using Sharpies, then I clear coat it when finished- these pics are prior to clear.

See more cool stuff like this on my website!

Very cool! I'm trying something similar what do you recommend for clear coat? Is it some kind of spray?

Holy lord. I feel as if the curved surface would prove challenging. I did a pair of shoes and it was bad enough lol
But awesome as always :)

Thanks! It took about 5 hours to do the ink work, but it was quite challenging for the exact reason you said. It's what I call a 'constant curve'- it's never flat anywhere and you have to try to adapt your method to the shape. It's always great to do some extra challenging ones :)

You know those zebras-like paintjobs they use when testdriving concept cars. They should do it in style and hire you to design them ^^ Do you ship to Europe?

That would be a killer job to have, but they use vinyl wraps for those to keep it cheap which is no fun. I do actually ship to Europe- is there something you'd like?

not me directly, but I have a friend who just purchased a new motorcycle. A custom helmet with Kawasaki-Green highlights might make for a neat, personal gift :)
