Jin ‘n Juice

I had the pleasure of creating a unique pinstriped design for the hood of this car. This was the very first of the Japanese style, what I now call “Shugoshin”, designs. It’s a subtle hannya inspired piece so watch for it around the 1:45 mark as it jumps out at you. Thanks again to Jin of Kyoei USA!

Prius Pinstriping and Shugoshin Designs

Another great car featured in this video by Jin of Kyoei USA. A car I decorated with a little “Shugoshin” design accompanied by long stripes down the sides of the 2014 Prius.

Shugoshin designs are sort of amulets of protection, talisman, crests or symbols of status. It pulls from two cultures, Japanese iconography and American Hotrodding and are designed to fit these VIP style cars with restraint and subtlety. The look is very impactful when discovered by the viewer but goes unnoticed from a distant glance.

The car is the second feature in this video starting at the 2:04 mark. Thanks to ACCtv for producing this video!

USA Speedskaters with Pinstriped Suits


If you hadn’t noticed yet, at the 2014 Olympics this year in Sochi, US speedskaters are sporting new high-tech suits created by two companies, Under Armour and Lockheed Martin, which feature some very bold pinstriping. In the search to create the world’s fasted suit somebody decided that nothing was more American than “flat” black and hotrod pinstriping!
