EKN TV: Oktane Visual – Helmet Painting
Longtime karter, EKN Forum contributor, and all around good guy TJ Koyen created Oktane Visual in 2011, leaving a full-time job in 2014 to follow his passion for painting and graphic design. Many of the young and rising stars, in addition to a number of current studs in karting along with racers in other forms of motorsport carry the Oktane paint on their lid at tracks across North America. Koyen is one of many artist we get to enjoy in terms of helmet painting.
TJ took the opportunity to complete a time lapse of his latest creation for karter Kyle Janssen. The near 30-hour process is dropped down to a 20-minute video, giving viewers a true sense of what it takes to create a masterpiece brain bucket.
