Well the newly redesigned Road & track is on the stands. I've been drawing cars since a kid in school. I also have been thumbing through automotive magazines for decades. Car culture does have a rich history. I've been in many discussions about what a car says about it's driver, not to mention the pros & cons of the larger issues. The subject crosses over all dividing lines. Well for these illustrations I worked with David Speranza at Road & Track. We had not worked with one another before. The last decades working in an automotive magazine has an illustrator playing a supporting role to photography. The largest image roughly a quarter page, with two spots. I do enjoy working 2D vector, and was happy to hear that David embraced that approach. Working on the illustrations with David Speranza as my collaborator was….. Hell, it was fun.

It was a fun assignment which provided me an excuse to draw cars.
