Artist - Ryan Curtis

Welcome to SIN Customs my name is Ryan Curtis, Illustrator, Artist and Gearhead.

Throughout my childhood I was consumed with two things, art and anything with wheels. Hot wheels cars were and still are a passion for me, along with the full scale projects in the garage that vary from a bagged Chevy S10, 1962 Studebaker and 1970 Ford just to list a few. In high school I was introduced to the mini truck scene and became infatuated with the trucks of the late 80's and early 90's. There was just something about the low stance and elaborate paint schemes that had me hooked and filling my sketchbooks with them.

After high school I pursued a a degree in Visual Communications and worked as a Graphic Designer and Art Director for various advertising agencies, and business. After ten years within the advertising industry I felt that something was missing and started automotiveSIN Magazine a publication that focused on automotive Style, Intrigue, and Nobility (SIN). This satisfied my passion for vehicles for awhile, but there was still something missing. In 2007 I established my art studio SIN Customs in San Tan Valley, Arizona then moved in 2021 to rural Manila, Arkansas where I continue to develop and merge my affection for cool vehicles, custom paint, and illustration into a artistic brand.

To date I specialize in automotive illustration, automotive clip-art and graphics. The new “SIN” mantra “Style, Innovation, and Nostalgia” can be seen in my unique mixed media blend of digital technology, automotive paints combined with traditional painting methods.
