The artwork seen here was created from the concept stage by myself. Some designs and illustrations may not have made it past that stage but most did. Whenever possible I like to take the artwork all the way to the print ready files to maintain control over the final product. This is true of all of the completed projects here as of the time I am typing this. I did not do the vinyl installations shown her but I have done many vinyl installations including signage and boat names. I have not done vehicle wrap installations.

If you are not familiar with vinyl in this context it is a durable, adhesive backed, plastic sheet material. On a vehicle most vinyl manufacturers predict a five to seven year life expectancy with five years option to remove it. The advantages of using vinyl over paint for designs and illustrations on anything from cars and trucks to murals are many. The artwork can be done off site providing the artist plenty of time in a comfortable environment to refine the art and a relatively short installation time which can reduce interference with daily life or business on site. The artwork is stored digitally so if you want to wrap several food truck with the same design, for instance, the artwork only has to be done once. Also if something bad happens to your wrap due to an accident or vandalism etc. It's not that big a deal to print out a replacement and patch or replace the problem area. It also has the option to be removed during the first few years. This means you can market your company using a vehicle for a few years and then return it to it's original state without having to repaint it. The vinyl actually protects vehicles and other surfaces from UV rays, dirt and scratches. On the flip-side the situations where I think vinyl probably shouldn't be considered is on a highly irregular surface like brick with deep masonry lines or a chalky surface which the vinyl would have trouble clinging to. Vinyl does lack some of the warmth and crafty feel of a hand painted mural but the practical aspects of vinyl are undeniable. Personally if something can be done with vinyl as an alternative to paint I am almost always going to recommend vinyl.
