From the Artist: I love to ride motorcycles. My scooter is my fav ride. I wanted something people could easily identify, that was lightweight and could be ridden on the street. I'd recently seen a sculpture of a spider that I liked and realized I could build one on the scooter. And thus was born the spider-scooter The Spooter!

My favorite thing about being part of the Art Car Community is the people, the artists, the creativity, the shared vision, playfulness, people's appreciation and acceptance of other's vision, Houston proud, the creative process, thinking of an idea, figuring out the design, building it, and seeing the smiles on people's faces.
