My First Fixie: Red Lugs, black accents

So I painted the red on this weekend and it turned out alright.

You can kinda tell that the paint lines aren't too clean, so I decided to do some outlining in black. This was not the greatest idea, but whatevs, it's my first. So I tried doing a little design like so:

But it didn't turn out that well...

So I decided to go a bit more, and I think it turned out ok. Not fantastic, but ok.

I'll probably go buy a fine tip Sharpie to clean up the red/grey lines, as the black is a little too much. But it'll make for some fun designs. Lesson learned: tape well the first time to avoid runs!
