Donnie Baird-Imperial Customs

Went down to Pacioma and did a mini photoshoot with Donnie Baird of Imperial Customs.
For those of you who don't know Donnie, he's one bad ass painter and a very cool guy.  I showed up at his shop and shot some photos of Donnie "sketching" out panel ideas for a customers buggy.  I plan on going back at each stage and shooting Donnie progress through the job.  We have other plans to shoot his awesome 63 Olds and his wife's 64 Thunderbird together some time next month.  It was pretty cool to hang out with Donnie and listen to all his stories of BMX riding, painting for Disney and getting a knock on his home door from the authorities for painting in his garage.
