This illustration was inspired by an old photo in a book. All the elements, including the driver's face, were constructed or re-constructed in Photoshop.

I tried to capture the feeling of the early days of road racing, as seen through the mists of time.

That's a really nice atmosphere piece. Wish I had a time machine, or at least knew where to rent one.

More information, please. You say "all elements were constructed in Photoshop"... does that mean this image was "drawn" in Photoshop? Or is this a PS montage (the race car placed into the background photo)?

I can see that a lot of work has been done on the Bugatti - very simplified, with outboard levers removed, etc.
