All week we'll be featuring participating collaborative artists for the White Van Custom Vans & Custom Van Art Show happening at the brewery on Saturday, May 12 at 6PM.
My typical day is 8am to 6pm, usually a salad from Marianos around 12 and a whole lot of sanding. When I'm lucky I get to spray auto paint...
I live in Chicago (Logan Square), my shop is in Chicago also. It is important to me, I want to be Chicagos best Custom paint shop. It drives me crazy when I see guys list themselves as something "Chicagoland" and they are 60 miles from the city.
Hustle! Do what you love and take pride in your work.
I don't know if I sacrificed anything... I did give up a career as a commercial printer, I went from having a steady paycheck, health insurance, things like that. I wouldn't call it a sacrifice though, because I am happier now than I ever was working for someone and I know all that stuff will come back on my terms.
