Some new Moto-Art for the man cave

These just came in today courtesy of

www.owenARTstudios.com & http://twowheelart.com/

Very happy with the quality of the paper and the printing..
These crappy cell phone pics don't do them justice at all.
Now I need to find a good framer.. Any suggestions?

best framers in town is called red barn picture framing

(281) 498-6266
9850 S Hwy 6
Sugar Land, TX 77478


owned by two brothers that are a little weird but they know they're framing. been running the place themselves for years. Although framing isn't cheap i find them a much better value and quality of work then other places i have tried.

did you filter some of these in photoshop? They look great, you might wanna consider putting them on mounting board, you gonna pay several hundread for custom size framing. Are they a standard size, if so hit up hobby lobby,or just get some that are a little larger and cut your own mattes. Who printed and what kinda cost?

LOOKS GOOD...I still gotta get my Spies framed that I plotted off. It's huge.

I'm considering a sticky foam board and then just hang, but I'd like to have some sort of plastic framing, but with it being so big the cost is probably outrageous. Notice my 11.5 Ariat boot for size reference.

Consider cutting you own frame from some nice Lowes 2 x 6's, stain them and staple the prints to the back of the frame with a backing board!

I think you could even put some clear plexi glass ovre them.

Took them all to Michael's for custom framing / matt work on the big ones and bought some pre-fabbed frames / matts for the small 8-1/2 x 14's.
Hopefully they come out nice.
I didn't even do the fancy framing or glass and it was over $900 in framing!!
I never buy for the house anyways and these should last forever once they're done. Will post pics in a week or soo when I pick them up.

AWESOME! I love motorsports art. We don't have as much wall space at the house here as compared to Atlanta, so all our old stuff isn't even out :(

Where did you get the helmet box? I wouldn't mind having one of those.

Actually found em in my mom's garage.
My step dad(ex) made them I think. He made a lot of stuff from acrylics.

Pretty sure they are made for football helmets, like the ones on ebay. Work just fine for moto helmets though.
