A pile of adjustments to the initial digital file. i got into Illustrator and put together a flame row for my border treatment. The Briggs and Stratton logo is from the 1950s, which is exactly the timeline I was shooting for. I don't want to rip-off Big Daddy Roth "RatFink", but I do want to try to react to that whole scene, as an outsider that only had a lawnmower to make noise with... not a cool hotrod.
