The power of simplicity is not an easy thing to accomplish. Only time, dedication and a big learning curve will get you there. Make mistakes. Take risks and only seek advice from those you admire, those that have followed the curve.

Axalta announce it’s “Paint Outside the Can” contest winners! Submissions were judged on creativity, execution and degree of difficulty.

GLEN MILLS, PA, October 16, 2015 – Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, is pleased to announce its 2015 Paint Outside the Can contest winners. The contest, which was open to professional auto body painters in Canada and the United States, was an invitation to unleash creativity using any Axalta-branded coating system to paint and decorate an unused, standard one-gallon paint can. Axalta organized the contest, which closed on September 15, 2015, as a focus on fun, creativity and to promote and support its auto body customers’ inner artists.

Industry celebrity judges selected six celebrity picks based on creativity, execution and degree of difficulty. There is a tie for sixth place, resulting in seven celebrity picks. In addition, six “fan favorites” were chosen by fans based on the number of photo “likes” that were posted on Axalta’s Instagram website. Finally, one “best-in-show” grand prize winner was selected from the seven celebrity picks. The winning submissions will travel on tour to custom car shows throughout the United States in 2016. Axalta will also display select submissions at its booth at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association’s (SEMA) Show, as well as at other events. All submissions can be found online at Axalta’s website in addition to Axalta’s social media channels.

The winners are as follows:

Grand Prize Winner – Mike “Splash” Burton, “Paradise Pipeline”

Celebrity Picks – Mike “Splash” Burton, “Paradise Pipeline”

Asher Emerson, “Sakura Temple”

· Ron Coan, reality TV star and one of the leading painters in the automotive industry known for show-stopping creations with Mobsteel at SEMA to groundbreaking OEM concept cars

· Danny “Danny D” Galvez, a well-known custom automotive painter and pinstriper

· Paul Quinn, a renowned airbrush and pinstriping artist and instructor in the custom paint industry

· Danny Taylor, a pinstripe master with a 39-year history in custom artistic automotive design

“It’s as much about thinking outside of the box as it is painting outside of the can,” said Quinn. “First and foremost, as a judge for this contest, I am looking at the quality of the artwork. Judging this was a whole lot harder than I expected it would be as the best entries were all of very high quality.”

Chōjun VIP style Lexus

I’ve had the fortune to adorn another VIP style automobile and I have the car’s owner Ron to thank for trusting me to do my thing and continue with the pinstripe theme we started on his air ride parts. I definitely want to do more of this style and the VIP format is a perfect match. Congrats to Ron for taking “best Air suspension” & 1st place in “4 door import” at Bring the Noise 2015!!

Classic Steelie Wheel Stripes

Another set of classic steelie wheels. This time with triple, off white pinstriping. After finishing a four wheels, I can’t stress enough and just how important, a simple look of a pinstripe can dramatically change the look of your project.

To stripe or not to stripe….




There’s a time that comes when someone inevitably passes on the option of pinstriping. This is, in most cases, a mistake. It just looks better! It’s because it adds a level beyond being to simple and not simple-good, I’m talking amatuer simple. Pinstripes add a level of complexity that the job needs in order to look complete, finished and intentional. Now, deciding on the color of pinstriping is another decision and topic for another day.
