    Designed and installed this ad for Jim's Body Shop. Designed in CorelDraw X5. Printed on Mutoh ValueJet.

    Always nice to do something a little different.

    Wish I would have slanted the old truck to show the weight of the bear....Oh well. lol

    WOW! can't miss that ad! I believe it's going to create a lot of work for the body shop. Definitely a head turner. The bear is killer...and the pick up sits over the rear tire of that bus perfectly. Which model Mutoh are u using and do you like it? What do you think of Mutoh printers? Nice job Kirk!

    I think a better approach would be to make the truck smaller so u could fit the whole truck on there and make the bear more proportionate.i thinks it still looks great and a great design.

    Thanks everyone. We're working on a new one for the same customer that will make the bus look like a flatbed wrecker. If all goes well the driver of the bus should look like she's driving the wrecker lol. (It's going on the Mt. Pleasant Transit by the way James)

    I have a Mutoh VJ 1204, the 48" model. I like it alot but I wish I would have purchased the 54". I'm planning on purchasing the 1614 this fall.

    The bear part of the message is clear to me. I see it as: If the truck bed can withstand a giant wild animal with huge claws, it should be able to handle your 2x4s.

    I like the whole thing but the lettering on the truck door. It just kind of looks slapped on. I would be nice if it had an old fashioned hand painted look. That style would go well with that type of truck. Then photoshop it a bit so it looks like it's actually a part of the truck.

    Outstanding work!

    I regret buying a building that doesn't have a large roll up door! Having such a large canvas to work with has got to be fun!
