Where can I find a good airbrush artist in Los Angeles? Are my only options somewhere on Venice Beach or a mall kiosk? I'd like to have a shirt made with cats and other dorky things on it but need those dorky things to look reeeeeally good. (Like, reeeeeeeeeeally good.) Thanks!
I’m looking into buying an air compressor that will work equally well with an airbrush and a framing nailer. Does such a thing exist? [more inside]

I need to paint a bunch of glass candle holders, but don't want brush strokes and can only do this in my 1 bdrm apartment. I tried building a spray paint booth, but the fumes were intense and I still managed to get spray paint everywhere. Looking into airbrush or spray guns but they don't seem very safe for indoor use either. [more inside]

I'm looking for an adhesive-backed ink-jet printable plastic suitable for use as masking/stencils for airbrushing. I've tried a couple of options, but have failed in some subtle ways. (Now with related bonus question!) [more inside]
Which air compressor is quieter? The HUSKY air scout. LINK Or this Craftsman 2 gallon one? LINK Any other suggestions will be appreciated! Thanks!
When I was a kid (mid-1980s, early-90s) I was obsessed with these compendiums of Japanese illustration they had where I took art lessons. Most of the art was airbrushed; a lot of hyper-realistic work in the vein of Hajime Sorayama, which I don't mind, but some of it was this cartoony airbrush style I love. In particular there was this cartoon dog who wore a suit which I'd like to find again. I'm not sure what the advertisement was for, but it features a cartoon dog wearing a suit in various situations with a weird cast of characters. On a rollercoaster, etc. i know that is vague, but does anyone know what this is? The style is pretty similar to the boxart for Hudson's Adventure Island. Does anyone know who did the art for that game? Any artists I should check out based on that style?
Hive mind: recommend me a readily available (mail-order's okay) sub-$150 airbrush kit for a beginner that will neither overwhelm nor be outgrown! (recipient: 21-year-old interested in painting R/C helicopter canopies) Bonus points if it includes paints.
My friend is supposed to have her engagement portraits done tonight and of course she has a nasty huge pimple on the side of her nose. [more inside]
I often walk past artists painting/airbrushing photorealistic billboards on the sides of buildings. Talent aside, how do they do this? I would imagine that an original image would be projected onto the building, and then traced, but how do they avoid image distortion if the environment doesn't allow for a perfect straight-on projection? Do they project an already-distorted original onto the wall?
