I own and operate Masters of Chicken Scratch. I have been a designer for over 12 yrs now and I have been able to do work for several Fortune 500 companies and several other amazing businesses. I also self published Masters of Chicken Scratch Vol1 and Vol2 and currently working on more book projects. I really appreciate everyone that stops by to read the blog and I feel honored that people are interested in what I have to share. So Thank You
I have used automotive sweeps for a long time to clean up my final drawings. I even use them on my digital equipment now. I have used them so much I had a few of them break after so much use. So I wanted to find a way to make another set for myself, I did that and I decided to share them with everybody in the design and art world. They have several various curves that help with your final sketches for product, automotive and concept design. They work great with all digital products like the iPad and Cintiq monitors and actually increase your workflow speed. If you would like a set please go to my online store and get your pre-order in now and they will be shipped out the week of 10-22-18. I am knocking off $5 if you order them before I have full stock on 10-22-18. Buy your Drawing Sweeps here
So recently I was asked to leave Fly Racing because they did not want to keep developing as much product. So on that note, I have decided to open my freelance business back up and take on projects. I have created a very small sampling of products I have done through the years. I have designed for several major companies and have done a wide variety of design work. If you’re interested in working with me please send me an email and I will get in contact with you to discuss your design needs.
A new set of prints up in the online store. They are 8.5X11 on sand colored paper. They started as original, traditional, hand-drawn sketches with markers, pencil, and watercolor. They bring out the character of a true hot rod with a big carburated engine with lots of horsepower and a low mean stance. These would look amazing in a killer man cave, a dirty garage or an awesomely designed kids room. At $20 you could have the set for $40 what a smokin deal for some awesome art.

First Hi to everyone that still visits my blog. I want to really focus some time on revamping and doing some new and fresh art for all my supporters. In the last few years since I have been working full time again I have kind of let things go and I have not been producing many final pieces of art. As you can see in my instagram feed I am still sketching a lot but no finished pieces. When i was producing final pieces I was traveling to hot rod shows and I always needed something fresh. Now I think it is is time to shake off the dust and get back at it. My first goal is to finish the Hot Rod Car Themed Card Deck called the Burner Deck. If you haven’t seen me working on it I am hand inking each piece for a card deck I am going to produce and all the proceeds will be going to a Charity by the name of Redeeming Love. They are an organization that helps victims from the Human Trafficking trade here in the US. So I am very energized to get that thing launched. Then after that I have a few things I would like to do but I need to give it some thought and time to see what is next. In the mean time check out my instagram feed to see more updates just look for that link in the upper right hand corner. Here are a couple images from the card deck project below. Talk soon

All of the artist featured in here come from diffrent backgrounds. Like Jeff Norwell, he works as a freelance artist mostly in the storyboard industry for comercials. His work is top notch and it shows in his hot rod art. Then Christian Pierce is from New Zealand and he is an concept artist from WETA. If you don’t know what WETA is they are the concept studio that did concept work for Lord of the Rings and now The Hobit movie plus several other blockbuster movies. Eric Black is a professional Architect by trade and he has moved into hot rod design, amazing talent. John Frye is a full time designer for Honda North America and he draws some pretty mean hot rod designs. Myself Dwayne Vance I was a full time designer at Troy Lee Designs in the motosports industry then moved to Mattel Hot Wheels as a senior designer. So more than likely if you or your kids have hot wheels you might have something I designed. These are just a few of the stories of the artist featured in the book. Then to add to the amazing content, it comes with a 2hr dvd that shows my process from sketch to rendering. I talk about different techniques I use and different programs I use to finish my designs.

This is a collection of my 2014 sketches right out of my sketchbook. I am offering it as a pay what you want for it. If it inspires you and feel it is worthy of a little cash then feel free to donate. If not no big deal I just ask if you take it for free please share this link with other people that would be interested. In my sketchbook I draw from robots to spaceships. It is not meant to be perfect but I use my sketchbooks as a learning opportunity so I make mistakes and try to learn from them as I move forward. I later will choose some of my rough ideas to polish them up later. You can see my initial raw ideas right from the start in this collection of sketches. Thank you for your support and hope you enjoy the sketchbook. Download link
So here are all the nitty gritty details for the sketch book launch. This is in celebration of reaching 5000 followers on Facebook and reaching over 3000 on Instagram. So I thank you all for your support and I hope I have inspired, helped and motivated a few artist out there. I know myself have learned a lot from the community. So I truly thank God my friends, family and followers for their support. This past year and half has been a challenge since my battle with depression and all your support spurred me on. So as a thank you I am uploading my sketchbook for everyone to download. This sketchbook will be offered as a pay what you want for it. Including the price of free . Now if you feel the sketchbook has inspired you and you feel it is worth paying for you can donate any amount. If you don’t have the funds for it you can have it for free, I just ask that you do one thing for me, share it with others that will appreciate it . I would really like to launch a new entertainment vehicle book in the near future and this will help fund that project. I would also like to update my video recording equipment to do some more live videos for my Youtube channel. So thank you again and the sketchbook will launch on Nov 9th and I will put up the link.
