I've been busy.

I have been extremely busy in the last 2 month but, I was able to produce this beauty. It was commissioned by Bob Kim of Seattle and he wanted the coolest paint job ever. That's what I tried to achieve and this is the end result. It features:

- Chrome base with candy colors

- Matte/Shiny finish on parts of the helmet

- The flags of 15 different countries painted on the back.

- Bob's name incorporated in the Seattle's Seahawks logo.

One hell-of-a-job that took me too many hours to write here. And now...let's do the next ones.

Anthony Tolfa's new helmet.

This is Anthony's second helmet painted here. This time I went for a super metallic yellow that glitters under the sun. His design is greatly influenced by Lewis Hamilton's helmet.

Dirt car racer returns.

Seb had a helmet painted in 2007 and needed a new one. He wanted his design to stay pretty much the same but, make it more like 2010. I added a metal flake base for the blue and made both the Quebec and Canadian flag more "speedy". Have a great season Seb!

Jonathan Summerton - 2010 Helmet.

Continuing on last year's combination of green stripes and American flag, America's F1 hopeful, Jonathan Summerton, wanted to change a bit and go with the tribal theme. I decided to go very mildly with those and use a black base instead of last year's dark blue. Follow Jonathan at

Daniel De Kort's helmet.

Here's a rare sight,a SIMPSON helmet in my paint shop? And a "new-school" bandit? Yep, Daniel sent this lid from Curacao to get painted and he wanted his helmet to be based on Robert Kubica's 2009 lid. We switched the Polish flag to the Netherland Antilles's flag and added some logos to it.

2010 - A new chapter in Alex Tagliani's career.

Alex and I have been working together for the last 4 seasons, 4 seasons of ups and downs but, mostly downs. Through all these years I kept keeping fate in the guy, I knew he was up for something bigger...better.

January 14th, 2010, Montreal, Canada. The International Auto Show is an unusual venue to announce the birth of an IndyCar team. One could think that Indianapolis or Miami or LA would be better suited for the spectacular event surrounding this announcement but, no! The place is perfect if you consider from where the creators are. The FAZZT Race Team is now the only IndyCar team owned by a Canadian, a Montrealer to be exact and it is not a coincidence that the driver of the number 77 car also comes from the Montreal region. Both Andre Azzi and Alex Tagliani knew that the task ahead would be of gigantic proportions and they found the perfect guy to do the job; Jim Freudenberg. The FAZZT Race Team is now alive and well, having done their first shakedown in Homestead Miami on January 7th. The job was completed at an incredible pace, just think about it: they announce their intentions of racing in 2010 only on August 28th 2009. Already, the team has a headquarter in Indy, an office in Montreal and a complete team of engineers, mechanics and office personnel to compete in IndyCar. Kudos to everyone at FAZZT Race Team for the amazing work! I was there to witness the launch, I was impressed and I am proud of being part of it, good luck everyone. You can follow FAZZT at

I will be producing 5 different helmets for Alex in 2010, keep an eye on this blog for the scoop on those lids. Here's the first one and photos from the launch.

Been lazy posting but... I am back at it.

Yeah! Yeah! I have to admit that I have been lazy lately at posting on this blog. The trip in Las Vegas, the whole Holiday thing going on, it's been quite hectic around here for a while. But, I am back at it. Here's my first helmet posting for 2010, just finished it a couple of days ago. It's a chromed base Arai GP-5 with some cool graphics over. Nice combination of solid and transparent colors. Hope you like it.

This being said, I wish everybody a great 2010. May this new year bring you everything you wish for and more.
