The idea behind the first design is that the 43200g Union Special chainstitching machine is turned into a hot rod with a hemming monster behind the wheels. Sounds simple, right? Not until you see the detail within the image with every aspect of the Union Special captured within the hot-rod's body.

In Florian Bertmer's own words: "This design is an homage to 60's kustom kulture/hot rods, especially Ed "Big Daddy" Roth.

The sewing machine on the hood of the car is a 43200G Union Special which is used for hemming vintage style denim with a so called chainstitch. These machines are extremely rare nowadays and are almost iconic in the denim universe. A true denim fanatic will instantly know what this machine is.After I had finished the design I found out I drew one of Self Edge's employees without knowing it - Casey Wisenbaker. Look him up or visit him at Self Edge LA!"
