A new building in Bismarck has two artists putting their skills to work on something straight out of a pirate movie.
And one of them...is familiar with being in the spotlight of a camera.
Jon Schaeffer has the story.
Jason Doll has done work on Captain Jacks stores in Bismarck--and he's back at it again.
Jason"There's been some time lapse since the last few that we've done and So I wanted to give them a really nice paint job."
Jason says this project is normally a 4 week piece--he had to get it done in about 2
so because of the short amount of time--Jason had to make a phone call for help to Anaheim California.
"I needed to bring in reinforcements. We get along great he's a great artist and our style's match so it was a good marriage of timing and talent coming together."
The other talent working hard with Jason--is one of his good buddies--Ryno--and this isn't his first time in front of the camera.
Rhino "I did trick my truck, that was 59 episodes, I've done a season of car wars, and I'm now independently contracted by west coast customs."
He--Too-- says that his style.. and Jason's are a perfect match.
Ryno"When I walked in here it was kind of juggle act kind of circus thing until we both sat down and put two brains together to make a half... it just worked well."
Jason says Using images from various pirate films--the realistic styles fit Captain Jacks perfectly.
Both say Working night and day for two weeks straight can take a toll on them--but when it's all done--The reward of that work comes in the finished product.
Jason"Sometimes we take for granted what we do. We do it and we're like ok whatever it looks good, but when people come in and they're truly blown away and they're giving you compliments they're taking pictures it makes you feel really good."
Ryno"When someone like you walks in and says that's the coolest thing ever we did our job right.I just love what I do for a living "
Jason's and Ryno have been friends for close to a decade.
Ryno will leave Bismarck at the end of the week and shoot 2 new episodes of west coast customs.
