Uhl


“The Norman Rockwell of Harley-Davidson artists”. Charles Osgood, CBS Sunday Morning

David Uhl bought a motorcycle in 1988 and rode to Sturgis, South Dakota. That exposure to the biker lifestyle changed his life. Already an award winning illustrator with clients like FedEx, Coca-Cola and Time he entered the world of Harley-Davidson®. Ten years later he graduated from T-shirts to museum quality oil paintings. Harley-Davidson with nearly a century of history was the perfect match for Uhl’s new concept. He meticulously researches the motorcycles and the historical period associated with them for his paintings. Over a 100 paintings since he flew to Milwaukee to present A Change in the Weather to Harley-Davidson executives  and he’s still got plenty of bikes…and women to paint.

There’s something special about pin-up art. They’re idealized images that are erotic without being graphic. A pin-up is a throwback to a simpler time when a bit of art could be a motivator and not just another X rated click. Arguably pin-ups objectify women but it’s just as true that it’s an art form embraced by modern women who feel empowered by Bad Girl Art.

Sangfroid's unabashed use of punctuation and grammar has made him a literary standout on the internet. A rising star in the urban/romance/horror/science fiction/Nancy Drew fiction market, Sangfroid is the talk of the local McDonald's. His dog actually ate the first page of his magnum opus "That Foggy Night" and compared it to other great works like the weekly circular for its absorbent qualities.
