10. Handigitous: Custom Painting, Design, Illustration
- 3 hires on Thumbtack
- Serves Manchester, NH
"Not to long ago, I was at the Motorcycles of Manchester (MOM's) motorcycle center and was shopping around. I took a moment to ask some of the employees if they knew of anyone in the area that could do some custom paintwork on a motorcycle helmet. I was given the telephone number of an individual, Jonathan Golden of Merrimack, NH who could perhaps do some custom paint/art work on a motorcycle helmet. I went to the Handigitous web site and reviewed some of Mr. Golden's custom art work. I was not only pleased but was blown away by the quality of his art work that I reviewed. I was impressed to the point that I knew I had to contact Mr. Golden and perhaps commission some custom paint/ art work on my personal motorcycle helmet. In contacting Jonathan by email, I indicated what I would like to happen. We later talked by telephone and I basically explained what I would like. He listened intently, and then suggested I meet with him the following weekend at MOM's. I also stated I would bring some rough examples of designs I had in mind. I met with Jonathan, showed him my ideas of design, he expressed some thoughts and ideas and we agreed upon the art work to be accomplished. At this time Jonathan indicated the cost would be in the top end of cost (approximately $200.00) based upon our ideas of design. I left the helmet and designs with him and he indicated it would take a couple of weeks give or take, due to other works he already had in progress. Jonathan contacted me and indicated the helmet was finished with the air brushing and only the clear coating remained and should be done within the week. With the job completed, it was suggested that Jonathan take the completed helmet to the Motorcycle Show at the Grand Opening of Mom's South, Foxboro, Mass the weekend of 16 Oct 2013. With the show completed, I made arrangements with Jonathan to deliver the finished product. I met with Jonathan, received the helmet and was completely blown away with the quality of the artwork on the helmet. The art work consisted of my Native American Indian Tradition coupled with my status of being a Vietnam Veteran . The quality of the art work is museum quality, rare in design and personal thought and feeling. I was so pleased and impressed with the completed project, that I did not feel the cost was sufficient, I included a bonus for the completed commission. I have since worn the helmet, and have had many, many favorable comments about the helmet. I could have sold the helmet many times but would rather glow in the thought of wearing and owning a beautiful work of art. Anyone desiring a work of art, I highly recommend you contact Mr. Jonathan Golden at Handigitous Website concerning his Custom Painting and Airbrush Design, you can't go wrong......"
