sketching, Randy liked building model cars and when the first Rat Fink models hit the
shelves he, like every other kid in the area, purchased, built, modified and painted every
one he could get his hands on. Randy's first car was a 1950 two door coupe he would cruise
to The Witches Stand in South Bay and the A & W on Sepulveda Blvd. in Venice. He built
his first Harley, a 1948 flathead, when he was fifteen and rode it until he went into the
Marine Corps in 1968.
|When Randy got
out of the service in 1971 he worked in construction and did stunt work for the studios on
the side. Art was still only a hobby, but by now, he started using an airbrush and
occasionally would airbrush murals on his friends vehicles. In the late 70's Randy moved
to the Tri Cities, near Spokane Washington with his wife and son, he worked in
construction and did artwork as a paying side line. Soon, winter hit and the construction
work dwindled, so Randy found a job painting in for a local sign shop.
