    Doesn't have any good pics. It's just those ribbons that wrap around a graphic or line and its shaded to look 3-dimensional.

    When I talked to Jon Kosmoski a few years back , i asked him about his cover picture on his book - where he was painting without a respirator on ,, He told me that it wasnt even paint in his gun - it was water ......... He said he would get Waaay to high when he painted wihout one!!haha


    Kosmo is a cool guy to BS with ,,,, I used to skip school (Late 80's) & try to hang around his shop but,, he always kicked me out & told me to come back after school............ His Bikes were so damn cool back then - I want to paint one in tribute to that old school experience
