Larry Watson Painter, Actor, R.I.P.

24 07 10 - 22:46 Our hobby has lost another legend, Larry Watson. Watson's career began when he opened his own shop as a mere teenager in L.A. During the next decade, Larry changed the way we paint hot rods, customs, & motorcycles. Larry's iconic 50 Chevy, known as Grapevine was done about the time he graduated High School. It was an instant hit at the Bellflower Drive-In, despite the fact that everybody thought that Von Dutch did it. Nobody believed Larry was the artist, until Harvey Budoff dropped off his 50 Ford in the Watson driveway.

Watson invented many of the custom tricks that rocked the 60's show car scene. Techniques like paneling, cob-webbing, & lace painting were just a few ideas that sprang from his fertile mind.

Larry departed the custom car scene to pursue an acting career in TV & movies. Larry ended up in something like 140 different shows, such as MacGyver, Columbo, and Mission Impossible.

Now well turn our attention to the new iPhone for 2015, the iPhone 7 or 6S. Again following patterns of previous years we dont expect this to release until around September next year, so it will be the latest arrival of these three.

The Adidas Iniki first released on March 1, with plenty of colorways selling out since then. The models have been mostly general release offerings so far, and Adidas hasn’t yet given this silhouette a Consortium-level design.
