Custom Train Plaques & Stuff

My partner-in-crime, Chek, created these really cool train plaques a few months ago. With the cold season here, it’s time to start focusing on some new paintings and custom work. I finally got around to working on a few of the trains this week. Check it out.

I’m taking orders on any custom work including these train plaques, skate decks, paintings, etc.  Just send me an email if you are interested. Here is another shot of a truck plaque I wrapped up the other day.

 

If you want to order blank train plaques sold exclusively by Chek, hit him up here or just check out his site. Here are what the plaques look like blank and some samples of the work Chek has done recently…
