A Little Info and History about Myself (Herc Fede -- pronounced "FayDay", like "payday" :)
I wanted to let the ebay community know that this is my personal ebay id. I've had it pretty much since Ebay was established in the late 90s. Sometimes I like to mix it up and sell my multicolor works of art here. If anyone here has watched the movie "The Red Violin", then you know what my ebay user id means! ;) Love that kid! He was to the violin what Thomas McRocklin was to Steve Vai back in the early 90s! :)
I wanted to share my history and experience with this multicolor artform since there seems to be an explosion of people trying to learn this artform
I give ALL thanks to Darren J who did amazing multicolors for Ibanez for the lightning bolt of inspiration ... no question about that! Darren is the original artist for Ibanez, who inspired me to begin my journey learning this amazing, challenging, beautiful and very frustrating artform back in 1990...all on my own without any help from anyone, let alone an unborn internet! :^)) It was love at first sight when I saw Vai playing his UV7MC on the video, Slip of the Tongue with Whitesnake! :) That fluid tapping run in his solo STILL gives me chills to this day...and his multicolor UV just sealed it for me!
Since the early 90s I have worked like a madman on this artform until I got it to look unique with my own style of bold colors, designs, etc. I've had the pleasure of doing my art and my finishes for many guitarists, bassists, etc over the years. Though I decided to walk away from the "custom order" graphics line a few summers ago, I still enjoy doing this type of art on an occasional basis and selling them via Ebay, locally, etc...
Most guitarists don't realize that I am also a proficient artist (since age 4) and have done some amazing replicas of Donnie Hunt graphics on JS guitars, Rainforests and different combinations of hand-painted graphics with multicolors. But I don't enjoy doing those as much and don't offer them for sale anymore, even though they are very beautiful.
This info is meant to give you a glimpse of who Herc Fede is as a multicolor artist. I have been nicknamed "Multicolor Guru" because of the dozens of original themes and innovations I have come up with using the multicolor form over the years.
