The Bloodhound Project Paint By Simon

Paint By Simon

I am part of several event delivery teams that deliver events like the UK Skills show ,Worldskills, Motorcycle live and various other Automotive and Motorcycle themed events all over the world. I work on the logistics, Infrastructural lists and sponsorship details at these events to promote the skill of Automotive Refinishing, as well as ensure all Health and Safety aspects are met and exceeded. I ensure the latest technology and products are available for use by the participants and staff and can usually be found in the middle of the event area with floor plans, 2 cellphones and walkie-talkies directing vendors and ensuring an on time opening.

I have designed and painted artwork for award winning feature show-cars, worked on promotional products for companies, private customers and on projects with Dodge,General Motors, Ford(USA), Honda(USA), Harley Davidson, Oakley eye-wear, BASF, Stillwater designs and DSO eye-wear to name a few. I have also appeared on the TV show"overhaulin" with the CNN hummer and Chip Foose. At present I am working with Several magazines on features and upcoming projects.

I also teach the latest techniques regarding automotive refinishing and airbrush painting, these classes are all "hands on" and usually held at universities and colleges.

I was one of a handful of artists that worked on the paint for "Warrior one" with Chip Foose on the Hummer that CNN used to cover the conflict in the middle east. That Hummer was brought back and "Overhauled" on the TV show with the same name, and afterwards the finished Hummer was taken to Barrett-Jackson in Arizona and sold at auction for $1.25 million, all proceeds going to the Fisher House Charity that provide military families housing close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury.
