Nicole, The Gemini

In honor of my birthday, I thought I would post a few old time photos from years back.

I wonder what ever happened to this sofa and the blanket. No worries, the stuffed animals are still in a safe place.

Remember the days of Safety Town? I think the "teacher" next to me was wearing a Steven Tyler tour shirt from 1984. Note, I was minus the blonde fashion statement.

Gosh, even then I was a rough kid with broken bones. At least there is a photo reference of when exactly the tom-boyish nature may have begun. Back then, I was the girl with the broken arm like a boy and sandals on like a girl. Today, I'm the girl wearing black heels with waders and a bow in the backseat of my TransAm.

Bikini Bike Wash Update!

Just like I said, there were bikes, babes, and beer, but that's not all . . .

Here is a picture of myself and Tina (your professional washers) with owner Brian outside Sidetracks Cafe in Lakewood. Thank you for all of your support Sidetracks Cafe!

To get warmed up, I practiced on my Trans Am that morning.

Tina cleans up the chrome before this biker rides off into the mystic.

The leaf blower was an excellent idea, Mike! You were a terrific host!

Sure, sure, we wash cars and trucks too . . .

. . . and always with a smile!

Tina detailing away were her magic bottle of Simple Green!

Autographing my $500 bill for the Sidetracks wall - doesn't Mike have any idea what I can create with a Sharpie?

Tina cools down more hott chrome on this Harley Davidson underneath the chilly wash tent.

Nic knows it always important to spray from the top down . . .

We hope to see you at the next bike / car bikini wash in July! Maybe I will be lucky enough to see my wish list bike at the next one?

Come visit me at Sidetracks Cafe in Lakewood for the Annual Bikini Bike Wash! Bring your Ninjas, Kawasakis and Harleys between 12 - 4 pm. For $10.00, I'll wash and dry that pretty bike of yours.

Rumor has it last year some of the girls decided to wash cars for some very generous $$$ and even some kids, yes kids, brought their tyke bikes and wallets for a wash!

Nicole McClain Holds the Ace Card

This is Paul's first attempt at the 'Ace of Diamonds' postcard. "I realize it hides most of Nicole/Kerry's face (and we certainly don't want that)," Paul says, "but I wanted to try the 'looking through the bullet hole' effect. The next one will be closer to the original photograph so we can punch a hole where the bullet hole is. Somehow I want to fit her six-gun into the picture and her forelock here kinda looks like a 'Snidely Whiplash' mustache this time around."
The photo reference was a quick pose behind the curtain of legendary George Perez for our upcoming Salem, AZ postcard. Postcard supplied by the Inkslinger.

Nicole McClain Surrounded

I was surrounded by talent at the Motor City convention in Detroit with names like Dave Nestler, Tommy Castillo, Billy Tucci, Marc Wolfe . . .

You know
Dave Nestler, famous for his glamour, pinup and erotic art and close to me for his latest work where I was featured as the "painter"in Bored of Education. Keep your eyes and ears open for he will add writer and producer to his credentials for his erotic thriller by Realm Entertainment based on his Blonde and Gagged art series. One savvy, hott chic painting other hott chics? That's only the start of the story line from the script written by Dave Nestler himself.

Tommy Castillo, known for Batman and his dark humor, he is currently revamping the look of Batman Detective Comics and Legends of the Dark Knight for DC Comics. Gaming artist as well, Tommy has also created artwork for Wizards of the Coast, Kenzer & Company and Z-Man Games and the cover for Tony DiGerolamo's Complete Mafia for d20 to be released in November 2006. Of course, he was also recently discovered drawing dragons and dinosaurs on beer steins that have been added to my collection of Tommy Castillo pieces. Do the ideas leap out from the depths of the woods that surround him in his picturesque home? My dreams are vivid enough, but maybe I'll find out more during the project we are working on together; details to be released in the upcoming weeks.

Billy Tucci, graduate of the New York's Fashion Institute of Technology and former paratrooper, is the award-winning creator, writer and artist of the graphic novel series Shi. Through Billy his company, Crusade Fine Arts, Ltd., Shi is printed in six languages, has sold more than 4 million comic books and grossed over 25 million dollars worldwide. Producer Mimi Polk Gitlin (Thelma & Louise, Trapped) currently holds the option on Shi for a major motion picture. Tucci is writing the screenplay with Kevin Bernhardt (Art of War, Black Friday) and will serve as Executive Producer. He has been featured in The New York Times, NY Daily News, Newsday, Elle, Playboy, E!, ABC, NBC, Fox and this list goes on. I hope to exchange more hunting stories with him as I will be the model for his new Marvel character, Tarantula (see sketch above, 4th from the left). More updates on this later.

Marc Wolfe is known for his tactical and law enforcement art, but has a flipside, as he retains the interests of other fans with his detailed depiction of comic characters and movie actors and actresses. More later on a project we are working on together that has an ironic twist . . .
