About the Instructors: Professional freelance artist Rodrick Fuchs has been an increasingly popular and sought-after choice for original, custom-painted artwork since emerging onto the automotive art scene in Tennessee more than 15 years ago. Rod’s unique vision and designs garnered numerous awards, acclaim, and industry recognition. The opportunity to expand into the licensing arena has served him well to broaden the appeal of his sometimes dark and ominous subject matter. His work is readily available and distributed internationally by various local and international retailers (including AutoZone, Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire, PartSource, etc.) in the form of decals, t-shirts, guitar straps, puzzles, beach towels, posters etc. Partnered with his wife Cherie, they have proudly achieved a lengthy and noteworthy client list.
Steve Young: Owner operator of Tombstone Airbrush and Tombstone Tattoo, located in Stony Plain, Alberta. Drawing since I was a child , taking commercial art in high school , always drawing and diving into different mediums , I became an auto body technician as a career which led me into custom painting , as well as exposure to the bike and car culture , I started airbrushing in early 2003 , I was lucky to be able to seek the knowledge of a now good friend , Dave Thomas who was clearly the leading airbrush artist in the Edmonton area at the time, I spent hours learning from him what it takes to be a professional artist, it was then I knew what I wanted to be a professional artist , I airbrushed night and day any chance I could. I was so in love with it, and still am to this day, my main focus and strong suit seems to be portraits and realism much as my mentor (Dave Thomas ) Tombstone Airbrush was my prime focus for many years, taking on massive projects from semi trucks to wall murals and race cars , the bulk of my work was in the Harley market lots and lots of custom paint what an amazing customer base I was lucky to have , it was in 2015 I was offered a tattoo apprenticeship though Jer papove at Smash Tattoo , he took me under his wing and once again showed me what it takes to be a successful artist in the tattoo industry, although my main focus is now tattooing as a means of living , all of my personal art time is done with my airbrush mainly focusing on personal projects of large scale canvases , for what ever reason to this day finishing a painting still makes me feel like I’m on top of the world....
