Bill Munholland Helmet

Simpson Speedway Shark

Bill came to us and wanted us to paint his Simpson helmet, he said he liked a fairly simple design with white,gray,black, and maybe on color of either bright green or orange. Bill also included his racing logo which consists of M’s and W’s interlocking. I thought the logo was so interesting that i wanted to build the design off of his logo. So i placed the logo toward the bottom at a steep angle and built simple lines coming off of the up side down M. We chromed the helmet and did a black candy over it so that it would contrast against the stark white. We also did a fade of normal black paint on the black chrome so the chrome areas looked a little dynamic. We thought green was the perfect accent color for this otherwise black and white design so we did this very bright green with large color changing specs in offset by two green chrome vertical stripes.
