Lizard Designs Airbrushing

G’DAY. My name is Steve May. I run and own Lizard Designs here in sunny Melbourne.

We specialise in airbrushing, pinstriping, flames and graphics on cars, bikes, guitars, or anything that moves. We can also do full re-sprays as we have just installed a full down-draft spray-booth.

I’ve been striping and airbrushing for years. I’ve gone hard and practiced everyday and educated myself to be where I’m at today. I’ve put my balls on the line and have set up a really cool shop myself, all 400 square metres of it.

I will be running lessons in striping in the near future so if anyone is interested give me a call.

I think my main priority for now is earning my stripes within the bike and hot rod fraternity and knuckle down and do some serious hardcore paint jobs.

My main influences are Steve Vandemon and Larry Watson. I’ve been lucky to learn from some of the best on the planet when it comes to the craft; I’ve done courses with Craig Fraser (USA), Steve Vandemon (USA), and Doug Dorr (USA), and completed House of Kolor painting courses.

I’ve spent countless nights at my mate’s studio, Firefly Creations (Simon Gruar), who has been very helpful and supportive of everything that I’ve done.

So on a last note—if you need anything striped or custom painted or want some lessons, contact me:
