  2. Wow, it came out fantastic! Super clean. I'm loving the etched metal. Goes great with your color scheme. It was a pleasure making your idea come to life in a total custom Star Wars theme. Really cool looking with the red lights underneath. Bet it looks killer in the dark. Thanks for working with me. I appreciate the work. All the best! Josh
  3. Hello HS forum followers. In an effort to get more of my 'old Hyper Spin' website posts into one place I'm updating this thread. It appears my updates cutoff around mid 2013. These re-posts will show what many might of missed since then with my custom artwork for members. Thank you. All the best! Josh http://www.jwgfx.com Posted May 31, 2013 Hello spinners & pinners, I wanted to share one of my newest designs - Zombie Pinball Madness. It's is a tribute to the Zombie craze of today. It's one of 6 original designs for Shakenbake's VPcabs production builds. We wanted to evoke a sense of classic Zombie horror with a contemporary sense of doom. Please check out my galleries for these and other designs for Pinball, Bartop, Arcade standup & Pedestal style cabinets. I also offer logo design and pretty much anything else you may need from the design world. If you want to own one of these machines with this design or any of the other offerings please visit this post by Shakenbake: http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forum/showthread.php?23990-Pinball-2000-Complete-Cabinet-3999-Grand-Opening-Special You can also see this design as a completed cabinet at Brad's website: http://www.virtualpinballmachinesrus.com/ Please keep a look out for the other 5 designs. Thanks for checking us out, all the best! Josh
  4. Hello Thomas, Thanks for contacting me. A marquee design wouldn't take to long to make. It'll depend on the complexity of the artwork. BTTF... is that Back to the Future? I can design anything really, it's my job to bring your idea to life. If your interested please email this account and I'll send you some samples and my rates and how to book time on my calendar. jwgfx@at.net Thank you, Josh
  5. CUSTOM ARTWORK - Back to the Future

    They did enjoy seeing the machine. I wasn't at the event but Brad Baker the owner of VPcabs was and he did get to meet the cast. He said they were very gracious and cool people. It was a special event and the machines were really well received.
  6. Hello Spinners & Pinners, It's been all good since the VPcabs debut on Shark Tank this past May. Brad Baker from VPcabs was hired by Universal Studios to create a stand-up Vertigo arcade 'Back to the Future' themed machine for Michael J. Fox's Parkinson Disease Foundation. I got to design the entire build with licensed artwork from the movie. What a great project to be part of! Ebay posted the auction, all the proceeds from this event went to the charity. It was showcased with the actors Fox, Christopher Llyod and Lea Thompson at the Chicago Wizard World convention this past summer. The design was so well received from Universal that a second matching virtual pinball machine was commissioned. Also designed by me. The brother and sister set look the part and have been a popular design for BTTF fans all over. If you have an idea for a project or would like something totally all your own please let me know. I'm always looking for something super cool and one of a kind to work on. Thank you, all the best!

  8. Hello Tberry, Thanks for contacting me. Yes reapplying a custom decal set can be easily done. I'm able to design just about anything you can think of. Once the design is finished I send it to Brad Bowman (Lucian045) on the forums for printing. He can ship anywhere in the world. We've worked together exclusively for 5 years. He's the absolute best. Pro grade prints all the way. I've got a few projects in the works now. I'm always looking to work with people to get their custom ideas brought to life. If you think you'd like to work together please let me know. If you email me (link on my website) I'll send you some of my latest samples, rates and how we can schedule time on my future schedule. Thank you, all the best! Josh http://www.jwgfx.com
  9. Hello v1machine, Yes I can help, I've designed a few pedestal cabinets. Please email me direct and I'll send you my info about pricing and include samples of some pedestal cabinets I've made for members over the years. Thank you, Josh jwgfx@att.net
  10. Hello Mr. Jones. The only etching art I have done has been with Mameman. He does toppers that sit on top of pinball machines. He has also done other stuff but I've only made vector art for some of his projects. I'd suggest contacting him about that process. I can help with the designing of the images you'd etch but wouldn't know much about getting them to talk with the system. If you need vector art, things like 'Player 1' and items like that I can design a layout to your liking. We could get it into Adobe Illustrator to the size of the CP layout and you'd at least have the vector art needed for layout. The file formats can be EPS or AI (Illustrator files) that we can saved backwards legacy to talk to your plotter. Please let me know if your interested in working on something like that. Thank you. All the best! Josh
  11. Heroes Pinball

    Sweet, it’s like one of my kids going off to college and finally walking across the stage for graduation for their Bachelor’s degree. Well maybe an extra year to finish in 5! Dude, more pictures. You started the whole concept of having a Hyper Pin custom design with all the cool game characters in a montage. I just made a inner back plate decal for VPcabs ‘Back to the Future’ cabinet. I revisited our Hyper Pin version from 4 years ago. I think I’ve only designed 2 of these all this time. Nice added touch to detail. Now I need to see me some side art!! Thanks for sharing. So happy this is happening. The build looks pro grade. The shaker and amp placement inside looks super clean and well thought out. Keep p up the excellent work!!!
  12. Hello Spinners and Pinners, Wow what a hiatus for me. Sorry I haven't been around much lately. It's good to see people still making machines and sharing ideas. This website is still my favorite to get a pulse on custom arcade machine builds. I do still answer emails and contacts so please if you need anything let me know. Keep up the excellent work! VPcabs out of Ohio is going to be on Shark Tank next month. As you can imagine Brad Baker's 3 year journey to get to this point has been a long haul (literally). His annual visits to arcade shows throughout the country has been a lifeline to what Hyper Spin and Hyper Pin represent. Good old arcade fun in a new age cabinet build. I'm fortunate to have been the designer dude for all his commercial free artwork during this trek. It's been keeping me incredibly busy. I can't wait to see my logo I designed for his company on television. Wow, my design work on tv... wait a minute I've been doing designs that have been on tv for 20 years?? Never gets old VPcabs has brought to market a new stand-up arcade cabinet called Vertigo. It plays both classic arcade games as well as Steam Pinball FX2 pinball games. It's a great design to house both formats into one machine. It's been selling lot hot cakes and makes us feel good that old school and new school arcade gaming is alive and well. Check out VPcabs new website: www.virtualpinball.com I'm still making designs for clients all over the globe. It's been a busy past few years and wouldn't be fortunate to have done so without the good people of this community. I'm lucky to have been part of so many projects. I just needed to give everyone hear a tremendous shout out and let you folks know I'm still in the biz of getting custom ideas brought to life for our community. I worked with BBB on the Hyper Pin 2.0 project. We created a fantastic new logo and I'm anxious to see it's debut. I look forward to a resurgence in our gaming community and hope more and more people will visit and keep this community strong especially with the exposure VPcabs will bring to a larger market in the coming months. Big shout out to Lucian045; my good friend Brad Bowman is still my main man in the print world. Out of the 100+ design projects I've designed they have all gone to Brad. His work and attention to detail are second to none. I've always admired his positive attitude and ability to get the best possibly product to clients all over the globe. Also big shout outs to Dazz & Mameman. It was a blast to see them again at another Texas Pinball Festival last month. I really enjoy playing old school pinball machines. I love seeing all the different designs through the ages. Especially playing games I hadn't in the past and also all the newest arrivals like the Big Lebowski and Stern's Ghostbusters. Although my all time favorite is the new KISS pinball. I'm still a member of the Kiss Army! A few pictures of some recent work and some shots from this years TPF. Please contact me if you'd like to hire me for your next project. I hope to continue having fun getting your ideas onto cabs all over the globe. Much like my career in broadcast television it never gets old. Thank you. All the best! Respectfully yours, Josh http://www.jwgfx.com

  14. Tredog's Mini-Pin Arcade Cabinet

    Tredog, what a great cabinet! Way to go man... I mean dawg!! It was great to revisit my Hyper pin design. Making it into your mini dimensions was fun. I forgot how much time went into making this version years ago. It really is a head turner. It's on some full scale cabs all over the globe. The last one we made went to a forum member in France. So your in select company. Thanks for selecting my design and working with Lucian045 & I on getting this printed and shipped to you. His prints are hands down the best in the business. High quality vinyl and he knows how to get the colors to vibrantly pop off the decals. They really are pro grade decals and people need to see them in person to really see the difference. We going to post an update to this decal set on the forums to offer this new mini version. I'm really digging the speaker bezel and unique top pieces to your build. I used white t-molding on my stand up arcade cab and it really makes for a stand out clean edge on any build. Awesome job! Thank you, all the best! Josh
  15. I am looking for cab artwork,need help

    Hello Paddy, Cool looking cabinet. Getting it skinned the way you want will take time. You should start by trying to gather some images and see if you can build the different layouts. It's very time consuming and getting a good quality print is also a challenge. Check out my galleries for some ideas your looking for. If you find that it's something you rather leave to professionals Lucian045 & I have been building custom artwork sets for members for many years now. If your interested I sure we can get you a decal set package designed, printed and shipped to Scotland. I'm a graphic designer with 20 years experience in television & print. I offer a 20% discount on design sets and have all the latest software. Lucian045 can ship anywhere in the world and knows how to save you money for you printing needs.
