What would you paint on the side of your van?

Postby Marsupialized on Sat Mar 16, 2013 1:54 pm

You have purchased a van. First things first, you need to decide what you'll be painting on the side of it.

It's a major lifestyle decision.

Some popular motifs:


Wizard?

Image

Horse?

Image

Woman?

Image


Wolf and/or Snake?

Image

Star Wars?

Image


Other vans?

Image


Describe to everyone exactly what you'll be telling the artist.

Goddamn, do I love a conversion van with something big and majestic painted on the side. I don't see that too much anymore. If I ever have Real Money, I'm going to do it.

I'll defer to Sowley to post the drawing of the van with the "Side B of My War" in this thread. That's what I would have painted on my van.

Saw a lorry the other day with various pictures of Ronnie Barker as Fletcher from Porridge all over it.

I'm assuming americans aren't familiar with this, so this is what the fella looks like - he's the one in the middle:

(That's Kate Beckinsale's dad on the right, BTW.)

Wish I'd taken a picture.

Since I'm a Space-Rocker I think a nice space-scape would be cool.

I've seen a Dark Side of the Moon album artwork van before.

Remember, a proper custom van needs a name, as well.
If it's purple, it's 'The Grape Ape' or something like that.

Ok, picture this....the van is dark brown, something tasteful. On the side, a dog is dressed like a mountain climber and he's scaling a mountain that looks like tits. He's howling at the moon as he climbs. The moon should have vagina like features if you look at it closely. He's also wearing sunglasses, at night. Underneath in big cursive letters it says 'The Brown Mound Hound'

I think I would have someone paint a photorealistic image of the Indy 500 with my van in second place, overtaking the leader right as the checkered flag is being waved. I'm in the driver's seat hanging out the window and giving the finger to the dude I'm passing. Of course my van would also have side pipes with flames shooting out (in the mural and in real life).

The van would be named Hallin' Ass.
I play a drum in Tijuana Hercules.

Got an idea for a really cool airbrush: The Pope fighting Aliens and Predators with Harry Potter on his side. Scene takes place on a planet that looks like Endor and Hoth at the same time. Don't know yet where to place the bikini girls, but the scene's sky will be filled with red, blue and white eagles screaming "Freedom!". Land sharks would be cool too.

edit: surprised nobody came up with the free candy joke.
