ALW Custom Design is always looking to do MORE Commissioned works of Art

Below: Mural with me standing next to it..

The reason for the 2 different pictures is to give you, the viewer an Idea of it’s size.. I am approximately 6′ 2″ tall! 🙂 The mural itself without the M.M. Logo above it is 80 square feet or 8 feet tall x 10 feet wide! The M.M. Logo above was painted and sealed on a 10 foot long 2 x 12 board and lag-bolted to the Garage itself!

~~~These two pictures are from a series or pictures I took of a Commissioned work completed by Andrew (Owner @ ALW Custom Design) in 2008 for a local company located in Michigan. Click HERE to visit the ALW Custom Design Facebook Page and view even more photos (close-up photos) of some of the detail work on this particular mural. The previous link should take you directly to the album unless you are a first time visitor, in which case you may be directed to my Welcome Gallery Page album. If that is the case all you have to do is click the “LIKE” button, and then either click the “photos” tab on the left side of the page or return to the blog here and click the link here again, …whichever seems easier to you! I guess it all depends on how familiar you are with Facebook. Either way you choose I am grateful that you have taken the time to look at my work and I appreciate any feedback that is given.
~~~I am always looking to do more Commissioned works if you may be interested, or if you know anyone who would possibly be interested, feel free to contact me either here or on Facebook, where we can set up a more intimate contact, via e-mail or phone! I am willing to travel to do Commissions, presuming, whoever is wanting the Commissioned Work done and I have agreed on the size, time-frame (weather permitting if outdoors like this piece was), price, accommodations and essential living expenses (such as room and board, food, travel-fare, etc…) and above and beyond that a price for the piece wanted to be done. I will calculate materials into the final price of the Commission, based on size of piece, material type used, surface area to be painted on, and a few other variables. I try very hard to be fair with my pricing, and give you a great quality piece at a fair price, but I am very detail oriented as you may notice in the pictures, and I put A LOT of effort and passion into making the work look as good as it can. I will be posting more of my commissioned pieces in the near future, to give you a more detailed idea of what I am capable of doing, so I hope you come back soon and often or even subscribe to be notified of any new posts.
~~~Thanks again for stopping by, I hope you enjoy and come back often to see more original ALW Custom Designs!

New Products in the Store!

Fan of Futurama?

If you are a fan you might get a kick out of this! I was searching for a picture of Fry eating the sandwich from the truckstop, if you are a fan, then you know what I mean “Ugh, It’s like there’s a party in my mouth, and everyone’s throwing up”… LMAO .. anyways that’s how I came across this picture of the professor and when I read what was written on the chalkboard, I totally busted out laughing! It definitely worked… the power of the human mind is amazing when you think about it, even when it comes to something as simple as this! lol… Here it is… Tell me if it worked for you too! Please.. I really want to know! ..I’m still laughing about it

I just figured some of you out there might find this as amusing as I did! I hope you enjoy

Random Youtube video from Maxmoefoe! Funny

O.K. …. So I’m having another one of my “not being able to sleep days” or nights… who knows anymore! So I was checking my messages on Deviantart and notice someone had sent me a link to a friends youtube page asking if I could help… your normal spam type thing(turns out they have been deleted by Deviantart since they sent me the message 2 days ago), but the link was still there none the less. So being curious, like I am, being an artist and all I figured …”EH!… Why not?… Lets go have a look! … Turns out this is some dude from Australia (I believe) who’s youtube name is Maxmoefoe, and this video just struck me as hilarious so I felt like sharing it with a few people, I don’t know if it is just sleep deprivation or what but I laughed pretty much through the whole thing! .. Well with that said .. to make a long story short I present to you “Maxmoefoe”

Thanks for checking out my blog …as always… Have a great day!

A quick Thank You! …

I also run another blog, so you may see some stuff there that you won’t here …It still has to do with my art and crafts mostly, but I also have a few online stores! One example…, where you can buy many different types of clothing (this store is still in it’s infancy… :-), so please bear with me and come back often or follow my blogs via e-mail!) Other sites contain items from clothing to customized coffee mugs with my work printed on them and much, much more.

Click Here to check out my other blog at blogger /… hosted by google and run by ‘yours truly’… I don’t have much time today to sit and blog and talk a lot, as I have been busy working on some other work, but I will be back soon to share more of myself with you!
