My contibution to Super Bowl week - a reimagined vintage poster ( Stanford I think was the original ?). If Tom Brady taught us anything last year it is that you gotta play all four quarters. "Boo me in the third quarter, that's cool - come talk to me after the game!" - @garyvee Love that quote. #sbartelart #superbowl #superbowlweek #art #football #allfourquarters #footballlover #digital #painting #fourthquarter #nfl #nflfootball #touchdown #petoskeysteve

S Bartel & Son , Friday night work. The next generation learning the ropes on the mouse and the design programs. Age 7, much earlier than I had access to this stuff, let alone a live in mentor. This kid is going to be whatever he wants to be, but I asked him what he wanted to be if he could do anything for a job. He responded "artist." You already are #avanbishop. #sbartelart #son #artist #artistlife #generations #eachoneteachone #graphicdesign #graphics #drawing #design #father #petoskeysteve #mygreatestwork #love

Yeah....so......this happened. Charcuterie tray courtesy of the head chef at @beardsbrewery here in #petoskey . This #petoskeylife we live, this #upnorthlife we are blessed with comes in many forms. Fresh eats is just one of them - it's small things like great food offerings that make me never want to leave this place. Like, never ever. That aged goat cheese in the center there had me dancing while I was eating. ☺ #sbartelart #beardsbrewery #charcuterie #charcuterieboard #cheese #curedmeats #chefstable #luckyme #petoskeysteve #northernmichiganartist #letseat

So today is my first born #riderrockwell 's 10th #birthday and he loves #basketball, more than I ever knew as you will see in this video. He has been begging for a hoop for awhile now, so his mother and I finally got him his first real hoop. Nothing special, just a regular, adjustable , hoop with a water base. He is just a great kid, and his reaction to his birthday #gift is priceless and is an example of the #gratitude this young man has already developed in ten short years. Love my sons more than anything. If you love basketball you will appreciate this video, if you know someone who loves basketball share with them, it's pretty cool. #basketballlover #love #hoop #nba #emotions #reaction #jumpshot #slamdunk #dunk #baller #ballers #birthdaysurprise #thatsmyboy #sbartelart #petoskeysteve

This is the first post on this piece in a minute and some of you will notice some changes, mainly I decided this should be a #nightride . Soooo looking forward to finishing this guy up, it got shelved to to some new projects with deadlines, but rest assure this bad boy will be finished up before winter. #sbartelart #petoskeysteve #stevenmakesit #art #painting #oneofakind #interiordesign #largepainting #design #motorcycle #statementpieces #bike #bikes #openroad #freedom #fastasfuck #harleydavidson #indianmotorcycle #triumphmotorcycles Whatcha think? @deadendcycles @1974ag @jflores1972 @hellersharleys @ocdshorty @benfillman

Just found the best barber in #pet#petoskeymichigan , shoot maybe the whole North! He hooked me up with a bald fade no one, and I mean no one in town can challenge, I dare you. Get yourself over to @mai_gonz at @fadedid on US 31 across from the Bay View golf coarse. I have tried them all in town, this is hands down the best barber around. Not. Even. Close. Take yourself, your kids, or have your husband dropped off. The best. #petoskeysteve #barber #barbershop #bestbarber #getfaded #petoskey

NEXT UP; This week I started to bring @beardsbrewery 's "Serendipty Porter Biker" to life via a 7' tall wall piece. Peter and Ben told me "we do not like to curb creativity too much around here, so do what you do." Let's have some #fun. The plan is to keep the line art the same so it matches the already existing artwork for the can. But the fills for each section, i.e. the #bowtie or #bike are going to be what pushes this piece over. Please stay tuned. #sbartelart #beardsbrewery #wheredoyoubeards #petoskeysteve #stevenmakesit #art #painting #woodworking #brewery #beer #beercan #michigancraftbeer #craftbeer #breweryart #custombuilds

Alex Childress of @ale@childressphoto modeling the #deer #chair #design. The whole purpose of this chair design was for photo ops like this. Come #upnorth have a few beverages, and get a photo with #antlers to commemorate your visit! I need one of my own now so that I can get portraits of all my visitors to remind them this is Up North, not reality.

Growing up as a child #northernmichigan was my #neverneverland . It was my escape from the suburbs of Bay City Michigan, and later the corn fields of my second home Defiance Ohio. My family would go camping to various locations and I as a young boy could be whatever I wanted, an explorer, a boat captain, deep sea diver, two years older than my real age when I met other kids on the swing set, whatever I wanted because I was #upnorth, and Up North is magical. This chair represents that break from reality you feel when you can #getaway to Northern Michigan. I figured if a deer with a man's body in a suit playing a guitar exploding with golden musical energy did not say "hey man, take it easy you're Up North, now make yourself a drink and put your toes in the sand"..... #amiright ? I hope all who have felt this enjoy this chair design. Cheers to Northern Michigan, Cheers to cutting loose. You can bid on this chair at the Sit and Stay auction on July 27th in @bayharbormi put on by The #bayharborfoundation in association with #charlevoixmichigan #humanesociety . This chair will be sold at the live auction on the 27th, contact the Bay Harbor Foundation for ticket information. Please help support all the little critters of Northern Michigan and all the hard working people who take care of them. #sbartelart #petoskeysteve #deer #adirondackchair #chair #guitar #design #sbartelartoriginal #gold #music #outdoordecor #original #dog #dogs #dowhatyoucan #doityourway #art #painting #wood #woodworking Why yes, #stevenmakesit If you are interested in a similar Deer Chair, no two will ever be the same, please contact me via email at sbartelart@gmail.com.

#adirondackchair tear-down for the up coming charity auction held by the Bay Harbor Foundation for the Charlevoix Humane Society. This is the Guitar-Deer-Chair ( with photo-op antlers ) that I posted about two months back. Well the due date is June 15th, time to #getbusy. This is going to be a fun #sba#sbartelartoriginal for a great cause, I am a sucker for #dogs and #puppies , my wife swears she is going to open a #dogsanctuary when she retires, lol. These chairs will be displayed up the coast from #charlevoixmichigan to #harborspringsmichigan ( I believe ) from June 16th until the auction is held at the end of July. So if you find yourself Up North durring this time and​ see a chair on the street take a picture and tag me! Please stay tuned to see this project develope, thank you. #sbartelart #petoskeysteve Why yes, #stevenmakesit
