Sometimes you just need to have fun.

A very good friend of mine, Luis Milan has a pretty wild Miata. It has somewhere around 9 million miles, MANY of which came from track days and autocross. He also lives in upstate New York where the Miata endures pretty wild, salty winters. Simply put… this car has a VERY hard life… but I don’t think Luis or the car would be happy any other way. Luis asked if I would be interested in painting some “Exciting stuff” on his car to supplement the layers of rust, faded spraypaint, and guardrail rash. He was thinking of a “Flying Tigers” style paint-job but was open for anything.

Here I am with the creation: Sometimes you just need to have fun, and I can’t look at this car without smiling… I would say mission accomplished.

SOTW: Subaru BRZ

Alright here it is… This week’s Sketch of The Week… A Subaru BRZ. I’m a fan of these cars, they are true performance cars from the ground up (which is way too rare in my book), and look very cool too. This sketch is just me messing around and learning the lines of the car.
Remember: The first person to contact me gets the original picture mailed to them for $20, so message me ASAP if you’re interested. If you’re not interested in this one but you may be interested in future SOTW’s, subscribe to the blog so you can get first crack at future sketches!

It has been WAY too long!  My busy summer camp job ended so I finally have a bit of time to do some work. Also, it has been WAY too long since I did some actual paintings, I forgot how much I love it. I have begun to transform some of my more recent marker drawings into acrylic paintings. I want to get back into some larger paintings (48″x60″ or larger), but available space will not allow it so the next couple will be a manageable 18″x24″ on canvas.

Also, I’ve been talking about creating some motorsports themed artwork for a long time, and here I go back in. This painting is of my new miata, demonstrating to the viewer exactly what you do not want to do in an autocross.

 

Here you go… Drop a comment, let me know what you think…
