This bike, built by BC (BikeCraft) has won numerous awards around Australia, and has recently been featured on the front cover of Rapid Bikes Magazine, issue # 62 - 2011.
The bike was completely customised by BC and took a reported 2 years to complete.
Airbrush Asylum was asked to complete the airbrush rendering of the Celtic Design and adding some BC logos to the mix. The Original design was created by Matt (BC) with the Candy green also applied by BC. Overall it was a team effort and we were really happy to be a part of it.
Now known as the ‘Cyclone’ this Buell is a fantastic example of a true custom Streetfighter, and we look forward to working with BC on many more of their unique custom builds.

We were recently commissioned by Harley Heaven : Melbourne, to complete a Tank for Honda’s new bike which they are launching at this years Motorcycle Expo which is held @ Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre 26-28th November 2010.
Honda wanted to utilise their 1960’s classic winged logo, which we incorporated into the design. Although the bike is a new model, they wanted it to appear ‘old school’...So, with that in mind the decision was made to clear the Tank in Matt Clear.
**Visit Us @ www.airbrushasylum.com.au to see the completed bike.
This Video shows the process of airbrushing 3 skulls with some piping and skin effects. The entire design was airbrushed freehand and completed on a timber panel, allowing the grain to show through the artwork. Only 3 colours were used to complete the artwork, and its a versatile design which can be altered and tweaked to incorporate it into any application. Feel free to play around with the artwork and put your own twist on it...Have fun and thanks for watching....remember to watch Part 1 so that you can see the beginning of the Artwork.

This video has been sped up to show the process in airbrushing, a basic Koi Fish design onto a Trucker Hat. The design was airbrushed entirely freehand, no marking out and no stencils...As you will see from the video the design was sketched with white, then shaded with a black mix, some steps were repeated to create a little more depth and highlights.
We hope you like the look of the finished product as most of our work is automotive it was enjoyable to paint something like this.

This Video shows some footage of this scale mustang warplane taking off, it also contains a step by step slideshow of the Merlin wizard mural which was airbrushed on this plane in early 2008.

This video showcases the SlipKnot bonnet which we airbrushed to enter in the 2006 MotorEx Auto show, judged by US legendary custom painter Jon Kosmoski this bonnet won Best Overall.

This freshly completed Harley Tank will be our permanent exhibit @ Harley Heaven (city).
The tank with artwork on one side which is inspired by artist Brian Froud, combined with our signature ‘ selastic skulls’ we wanted to achieve a look that depicts characters trapped inside a tank.
The other side shows a trapped skull emerging from the clean white background, complete with rust and peeling paint and an Airbrush Asylum banner. The contrast demonstrates how bright and dark colour schemes can work together.
The clearcoat on this tank is the point of difference. The tank is cleared, half gloss and half matt. Basically the white side is to look like fresh paint peeling away and revealing a flat matt paintjob. We are trying to demonstrate that you can still have elaborate artwork even under a Matt clearcoat.
**If you want to see the completed tank visit the motorbikes gallery @ www.airbrushasylum.com.au.
Airbrush Asylum is excited to launch our new Canvas Art paintings. We are trying to come up with ways to make our artwork affordable to more people, and we hope that these paintings will become as successful as our custom work.

Each artwork is freehanded on to a piece of A3 Canvas paper. The Artwork is an original design in the theme of our unique style of Artwork. They are NOT prints and once sold the design will never be reproduced, every artwork will be different.
