Sloth is simple and it can’t be bothered. Death Spray’s latest Deadly Sin Collection fork is now in stock…

David at Death Spray Custom is my favorite painter in the industry and his recent work with GoPro gives an insight into why. Great job David!

It helps a lot when your teammate just so happens to be a expert at frame design and painting, especially when you win the 2013 California State ‘Cross Championships. Garrett Chow recently completed and photographed this bike for Mash-teammate, Walton Brush. Even if it did come at the end of the season, it’s still an incredible machine!
Check out some words by Garrett and more photos below!
As a frame builder or a potential customer of one, finding a good, reliable painter is one of the most difficult components in the custom bike equation. Not only do they have to be talented, they’ve got to be creative and be able to execute designs in a timely manner. Some clients have no idea what they want, but can give a few graphic precedents to a builder or painter and say “run with it.”
It takes a talented painter to make that a reality. In some cases, all it takes is a photo of a sports car, or a graphic designer like Adria Klora to hand over style sheets, yet either route you, the customer, or your builder takes, it all comes down to the capabilities of the painter.
One such painter that I’ve been really admiring over the past year is Jordan Low. A full-time painter at Seven in Watertown, Massachusetts, Jordan spends his free time painting for various frame builders like Stinnner, Geekhouse, Avery County, and Tomii.
