A sneak preview of Sparkle Kraken

A couple weeks back I introduced you to Sparkle Pony, my Torker Interurban with an insufferably cheery green metallic paint job.

Well, I finally started painting it today.

I’ll have more thoughts on the painting process as I get further into it, but for now I’m just going to tease you with some photos of what I’ve done so far.

I decided to go with a mehndi-inspired octopus design.

Meet…

Sparkle Kraken!

    • Thanks! We just started building it up this week, but it’s still missing some crucial parts before I get to ride it. (Like wheels.) I can’t wait to get it on the road!

  1. Gah! This is so stunningly beautiful! I am such a sucker for mendhi designs. Your shots make it look so effortless, almost like doodling? But like, 100x better than normal doodles?
