This past weekend, I sold my license plate wall art at the Dogwood Festival in Atlanta's Piedmont Park. I met so many people who inspired me to come home and create new artwork featuring their favorite music artists.
Having my license plate guitar art featured nationally has been a great experience. partially because, thanks to social media, I get to see my license plate guitars on the walls of Red Robin restaurants around the country.
Working with a commercial client like Red Robin is almost like having my own personal gallery across the United States. Clients come in to get food and then the experience my custom wall art. While they're waiting for their food to come, they take pictures of my artwork, share it with their friends and on their social media sites.
I have seen many pictures of my license plate guitar art on review sites such as Yelp, Trip Advisor and Google. Lucky for me, it makes it possible for clients to find me on the Internet.
I appreciate my job every day. It's a great time to be an artist. Here are a few pictures that people have posted on reviews of the Red Robin restaurant chain.
If you're in a Red Robin or see my guitar art elsewhere, post a picture and if you can, tag me. I'd love to see it.
I created a custom, handcrafted license plate art in the shape of a guitar for an Oklahoma realtor who loves his family, the OKC Thunder and OU football.
Special people get special gifts. They also have great stories. License plate art is a reflection of their journey in more ways than one.
Here's what my client, Tracie said:
"Peter, it was really easy working with you. You understood what I wanted right away! All I can say is WOW!!!! The guitar is so amazing!!! Exactly what I had envisioned!!! Love love love it!!!
Last month I was contacted by a client who found me on Facebook. He asked me to create a custom license plate art piece in a Stratocaster style. He's from NY and has played guitar his whole life.
I always like to conduct an interview with my clients to get a feel for the direction of the project. After his interview I needed something special to tell his unique story. I let it all sit for a few days. Then it hit me: it was time to use my favorite plate.
I keep the BORN2ROC vintage New York tag in my shop. I purchased it almost 4 years ago on Ebay. On our call, I told my client how special it is to me, but that it was time to use it. It complete's his story.
When my daughter found out I was going to use the license plate, she ran outside and took the above photo
He's a New Yorker who plays in a band throughout the year while also being successful at his full time job. He truly is BORN2ROC.
He sent me this picture of it hanging in its new enviroment with this note.
"I love it! Came out great. Thanks so much and for offering the born to roc plate up!" - Paul🎸
