      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

A few illustrations

Recommended Posts

A few pieces of art I've done. The Lola was signed by the late John Surtees and is marker, gouache and colour pencil on mi teintes paper. The VW was done with India ink and a scripting brush on vellum. The GT40 was also done with ink and brushes but on linen paper.

Beautiful work and two of my favorite road racers.  The VW is cool also, owned a couple in the past and really wish I had them back.

Thanks! I've always enjoyed working in multi media and using a variety of techniques. I'll be posting more as time permits and as I finish current projects.

Again thanks for the complements. I had a chance to speak with Carroll when he autographed my art. He said that the GT40 roadster was one of his personal favourites and that it pained him greatly to have to destroy it. I presented Mr Shelby with a high quality copy of the original artwork on better paper than the original during a Shelby reunion at Road America many years ago. I feel blessed that I had an opportunity to speak with him at length about his involvement in the GT40 program when he was involved with it, a memory I will always cherish! I only wish I could have had it autographed by Lloyd Ruby when he was at a R/A vintage event. Unfortunately I was unable to make it and he passed shortly after.
