Unique Wall Art Customized for a Music Lover

Peter GeigerComment

When people see my license plate art their wheels start turning. A lot of my clients are music lovers, and this is how they get to combine their love for music and art.

They take their favorite song or band and mix it in with the things that they love to create a unique piece of wall art that speaks to them.

Here's the wall art I created for one of my clients from Wisconsin who is a Pearl Jam lover. He asked me to combine his love for Pearl Jam and the Green Bay Packers to create this unique license plate artwork. One of his favorite songs is Release by Pearl Jam. I featured it down the neck of the guitar sculpture. On the bridge is a phrase from the song, "I'll ride the wave." The band members of Pearl Jam are from Washington so I used vintage Washington state license plates to create this piece.  I placed the letters "PJ" around the body because Pearl Jam uses this as a symbol in most of their artwork. I mixed in the Green Bay Packer colors as spacers between the letters to highlight my client's love for the football team.

The Stickman, a symbol immediately recognized by Pearl Jam fans, is prominently on display in the center hole.

Let me know what you think of the piece in the comments. If you would like me to create a unique piece of art for your wall, drop me a line.

Personalized wedding gift tells a great story

My artwork is always about my clients and their lives. So when I get commissioned to create a unique gift for that special day  -- in this case to celebrate a wedding -- it's always a reflection of the road the couple traveled.

This custom wedding gift was ordered by the groom for his bride. The bride was in the US Air Force in Alaska and loves nature and all the wild life associated with that state. The groom has very a specific nickname for his bride, "My Angel," and requested that be featured prominently along with his favorite saying "I love you more."

They were both originally born in North Carolina and wanted that mixed in but he requested that Alaska be front and center. He also said his wife had a tattoo of the Alaska flag and stars.

I used the Alaska gold rush tags on the face because the blue used in the plate is a very close match to the US Air Force blue. The sides have the Carolina tags and the center is the bear for her love of wildlife. The top features their wedding date and the Alaska flag is just like her tattoo.

The sides of the wedding gift feature the wedding song "Green Eyes" as well as the bride's birth date.

I think their story has transformed well into a personalized piece of art, and you can see that in the final piece.

Red Robin guitar art spotted on the Internet

Peter GeigerComment

Having my license plate guitar art featured nationally has been a great experience. partially because, thanks to social media, I get to see my license plate guitars on the walls of Red Robin restaurants around the country. 

Working with a commercial client like Red Robin is almost like having my own personal gallery across the United States. Clients come in to get food and then the experience my custom wall art. While they're waiting for their food to come, they take pictures of my artwork, share it with their friends and on their social media sites.

I have seen many pictures of my license plate guitar art on review sites such as Yelp, Trip Advisor and Google. Lucky for me, it makes it possible for clients to find me on the Internet.

I appreciate my job every day. It's a great time to be an artist. Here are a few pictures that people have posted on reviews of the Red Robin restaurant chain.

If you're in a Red Robin or see my guitar art elsewhere, post a picture and if you can, tag me. I'd love to see it.

License plate art at Artsplosure in Raleigh

Peter GeigerComment

I do a lot of art shows around the East Coast, so it was a real nice change to be able to participate in Artsplosure right in Raleigh. It was fun to meet up with many previous clients, as well as folks who had seen articles or news clips about me from Our State Magazine, WRAL's Tar Heel Traveler, UNC-TV, or my story in Southern Living.

It was like a homecoming, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I also would like to thank all the new friends I made here this time. ABC 11 did a nice feature that included an interview with me, which resulted in more than a few people asking about my license plate art on Sunday.

One of the pieces featured in above news clip is my Bruce Springsteen license plate art. The client who ended up purchasing the Bruce Springsteen piece was so happy with it that he sent me a photo of it in its new home.

Thanks, Artsplosure and Raleigh, for another great art show.

Eric Clapton license plate art goes home

Peter GeigerComment
461-ocean-blvd

I just returned from doing the St. Stephen's Art show in Coconut Grove Miami. The show was packed, and I met a lot of interesting people there.

Hover, my most memorable experience was a client who came into my booth during the weekend, then called me up as I was driving home to purchase this Eric Clapton piece. When I asked him where I should ship it, he told me the address: 461 Ocean Blvd!!!!

That stopped me in my tracks. Anybody who knows Eric Clapton and his albums knows that the 461 Ocean Blvd. album is probably one of his best.

The gentleman told me his family purchased Eric Clapton's house a few years back and have really enjoyed it. He purchased my Eric Clapton artwork because he felt that it was a really great representation of Eric and his work and it should stay with that home. 

This is why I love being an artist. I love having these experiences and meeting some amazing people. Everyone has a story to tell.

Guitar art highlights favorite New York license plate

Peter Geiger1 Comment

Last month I was contacted by a client who found me on Facebook. He asked me to create a custom license plate art piece in a Stratocaster style. He's from NY and has played guitar his whole life.

I always like to conduct an interview with my clients to get a feel for the direction of the project. After his interview I needed something special to tell his unique story. I let it all sit for a few days. Then it hit me: it was time to use my favorite plate.

I keep the BORN2ROC vintage New York tag in my shop. I purchased it almost 4 years ago on Ebay. On our call, I told my client how special it is to me, but that it was time to use it. It complete's his story. 

When my daughter found out I was going to use the license plate, she ran outside and took the above photo

He's a New Yorker who plays in a band throughout the year while also being successful at his full time job. He truly is BORN2ROC.

He sent me this picture of it hanging in its new enviroment with this note.

"I love it! Came out great. Thanks so much and for offering the born to roc plate up!" - Paul🎸
