Credited as one of the most unique Classic and Vintage Car Museums in the World, The Murphy Automotive Museum isn’t sitting on their hands as May 11th at 6pm will bring the world’s first Nostalgic Automotive Art Museum called THE FIREBALL GALLERY.

The Murphy owner, David Neel, has partnered with Hollywood Car Designer Fireball Tim Lawrence as Director of the Gallery itself as well as Chief Designer for the remodel of the Murphy. A venture that will be revealing multiple ecosystems for the unique groupings of Classic and Vintage Cars that pepper throughout the museum. And it’s spectacular…

The new Fireball Gallery will feature 6 Automotive Artists in the categories of Illustration, Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Pinstriping. GALLERY ONE, which launches the evening of May 11th, will include Photographer Wes Nielsen, Painter/Illustrators Chris Garcia and Geoff Ombao, Street Art Sculptors Bohemia Incorporated and a featured Artist, Master Pintsriper Johnny Martinez.

“This has been a long time coming,” says Fireball. “Now is the time to celebrate the creative prowess of the Automotive Artist. These are the men and women that bring automotive beauty to this world and with the help of the Murphy, will change the face of Car Culture.”

The Gallery is already booked 1 year ahead with the likes of celebrity sculptors like TONY DOW (Wally from Leave it to Beaver), famed car design Mark Stehrenberger and Art Center College of Design veteran instructor Richard Pietruska. Each showing will run a 3-month cycle with 6 new artists.

“The Fireball Gallery will be a convergence of established talent and aspiring talent on display for the public to enjoy while giving exposure to the artist, under the curated direction of Fireball Tim,” says David Neel. “May 11th cannot come soon enough.”

Fireball Publishing launches Hollywood-Inspired CORVETTE COLORING BOOK, “VETTE”

MALIBU, CA. – Fireball Publishing has virtually exploded out of the COLORVERSE from Hollywood Car Designer Fireball Tim and wife Kathie Lawrence, making a massive dent in the Coloring Book Market. Although 2018 only brought 7 only books to market and culminated in this month’s launch of the gorgeous Fireball Tim VETTE Coloring Book, 2019 promises to hit even harder.

Hollywood-Inspired, the VETTE Coloring Book depicts 19 stunning and wild Corvette Concept illustrations for kids of all ages and 1 Corvette Maze. Available on Amazon and Car Museums across the planet (the Petersen, Galpin and many others), it seems that car enthusiasts who enjoy the muscle of the Vette will be able to share that love with their kids through this book for Christmas. VETTE is also available wholesale to all Custom shops, Dealerships and Museums.

“Nothing exists in the market today, allowing clients to have their own personal Promotional Coloring Book,” says Fireball. “It simply didn’t exist until now.”

The VETTE COLORING BOOK joins a line of incredible automotive coloring books which include MUSTANGS, CUSTOM CARS, VINTAGE TRAILERS, THE BIG BOOK OF WACKY STATES and 12 more books coming in 2019. Fireball’s highly creative design style and Fireball Publishing’s unique program of Fully-Custom Branded books for Museums and Stores includes clients like the VOLO Museum in Chicago and many other Car Museums nationwide. 2019 will bring WOODIES, CAMAROS, VDUBS, RAT RODS, CHALLENGERS and 7 other unmatched Car Coloring Books. They are simply the most imaginative car books every created in the Coloring Book Market. All books are available on Amazon here.

“These are some of the most create Coloring Books I’ve ever seen,” says Actor/Sculptor Tony Dow. “Worthy of any big-budget Hollywood Film.”
