Now I got TWO Torino projects based on your artwork!!! Awesome stuff my friend!

One of my "down the road" projects is a Talladega Land Speed Racer but I never thought about doing one as a quarter-miler. Thanks for some inspiration!

Was this a Johnny Lightning artwork?

Andrew, yes that was for JL blistercard art for the "Spoiler" series. The detailing in the photo is not quite as .... detailed because it was only about an inch and a half across when printed.


Jason, I don't have any '53 - 54 Chev sedan deliveries in my stuff... that I remember. But good subject for a future Sketchpad! Hmmmmm

How much work did you do for JL? I'm thinking that I just might have a lot more of your artwork than I thought...

Lots of stuff from 2003 through late 2005. Nearly all of the Zingers were designed by me and all the blistercard art for the Zingers were mine through 2005. After that they used office staff to design them. Sucks really....
Also did a few designs for the Spoiler's and In-Progress. Then a ton of blistercard art for Kustomized, Spoilers, In-progress, All-American, Black-w/Flames, Moon Eyes,Rebel Rods.. etc.
Also designed three Black with Flames cars, the 66 GTO, 71 Cyclone and the School Bus. Cyclone below...

The easiest way to get pix of a '56 Packard is to do a Google image search. You'll find tons of them...

I love the sketch pads. One of the first things I look at and one of the things I look at a year after publication. I know you did some PT Cruisers, but I can't find that issue.

How about this:

That is my interpretation of what a "Quarter Horse" might have looked like had Ford produced it. For the uninitiated, the Quarter horse was a version of the Mustang that was considered to compete with Shelby in 1969. A few prototypes were built and of course it was never produced, but this is what I thought it might have looked like.

Edit: Thought I would add just one more "Horse". Did this one for Lightning Lane... a collector site for White Lightning JL nuts. This image was printed on a special order of JL mustangs with the tampo print matching the illustration. Tampos were designed by someone else... I just did the illustration.

I suppose like the Firebird looks compared to the Camaro. Never done any illustrations to that effect but I bet it would be fun for a future SketchPad. Neat idea! :lol:

Jairus, I love the looks of the Quater Horse. That body has always looked lean and mean to me. Got anything in the form of a Foxbody?
