Muscle & Shadow
posted: July 21, 2010
Couple strong guys for recent assignments. A full page image about labor costs for Convene magazine. The next one is for National Geographic online, and about reducing energy use, that's belt tightening. Another one for Motor Trend, well it's shadowy, and about an American "muscle" car. The Mustang, the original pony car becomes a thoroughbred.

Very nice Doug--love the mustang logo with the jockey. BTW--I'm meeting Bman tonite for a beer. Haven't seen Mr. International in many moons.

Yeah I saw couple of photos of him. Tell him the beard is working. Have a good one.

Don't mess with the dude holding that expensive chip on his shoulder! Nice ones Doug.

Great work. There's something about the first image that makes me think of Leger. Can't figure out why yet.
Douglas Fraser July 22, 2010
Thanks Guys. Victor, maybe it's the layer thing. I've been working with the layering of colours. It's the energy in the reaction of shapes to one another. Thank you for dropping the reference, it's very flattering.

Very strong stuff, indeed, Douglas.

Cool, Doug.

The Mustang is my favorite, very bold and tough indeed. Blue is my favorite color too, I like the way you did the horse and the headlight. I want almost everything you make.

The Mustang, that is my favorite also.As a newly driving youngster I was driving my mom's '66 fastback and this complete f-king idiot rear ended me and totaled it and it wasn't my fault. Every time I see anything related to the Mustang I think of that cool car.

Wow, that's a sad one. The old fastbacks are rare these days.

Very cool, Douglas. Love the simplicity and power of the belt tightening piece.
