My client from Montana requested a piece to commerate their night at a Van Halen concert. They are big fans and got to sing part of a song on stage with the band.
They like Van Halen's Sammy Hagar era, and asked me to mix that in, if possible.
I started with the classic Frankenstrat shape that Eddie Van Halen made famous as my canvas. I featured Montana tags up top because that's where my client is from. I spelled out Hagar on the keys at top. Van Halen is written on the neck. I recreated the Frankenstrat completely from license plates and used to of there album names as pickups. I used California tags to create the body shape in honor of the band's beginnings there.
My client loved it, and responded this way: "I LOVE my new guitar art! Absolutely stunning and one of a kind!"
I'm glad he liked it. I like it too.
