For those not familiar with the term… door donuts are the marks tires leave on someone’s door when you bump at speed (note the round mark next to the “1” on Cameron Lawrence’s Challenger post-race at NJMP last summer.)

Out of hibernation, I’m Back!

Hi everyone. It’s been several months since my last post. There’s been a ton going on since then: new job, wedding planning, preparing for a huge art show, and then some!

So my first, most exciting piece of news. I have an art show coming up at Triumph Brewery in Princeton, NJ. I will fill the entire brewery/restaurant with my artwork (Around 70 pieces: Some old, many new) from September 30 – December 6th. There will be an Artist Reception September 30 from 7-9pm.  Stay tuned for more info and an official announcement.

 

I’ve been painting quite a bit, and have several new pieces. As a matter of fact, here’s one. It’s a Triptych (18″x75″ acrylic on canvas), called #RaceCarProblems showcasing the very car of AJ Hartman, and some of the more “unique” problems race drivers deal with.  This photo is of it hanging in the office at AJ Hartman Racing. I’ll post up a neater photo soon.

New Artwork!

Posted in Sketches with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2013 by Infamousjim

Life has really gotten in the way of art lately, but that is absolutely not a bad thing. I’ve been working hard at teaching art and spreading my nights between helping out a few days at 402 Motoring, and lending a hand building and repairing race cars with AJ Hartman Racing. On top of all that, the racing season (finally) started and I’ve been volunteering and driving at track days with NASA Northeast , AND I started planning a wedding.  Enough about me already, I’m not all that exciting and you are here for the art. I have a large art event happening fall 2014 so I’m working hard to build up my fine art portfolio. More information about that will come soon.

Here’s one sketch, finally a quick fox body mustang drawing… what do you think?

SOTW: Subaru BRZ

Posted in scca, Sketch of the Week with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 8, 2012 by Infamousjim

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!

Car Club Drawing

Posted in Pictures and Examples, Sketches with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 21, 2012 by Infamousjim

Hey everyone, here’s some of the latest. This is for an American Car Club over in Germany. They had a very cool request, to create an old school car cartoon, but use a modern mustang and own style. I’m very happy with the results.

Over the summer I plan on creating a full body of work based on similar style drawings, I’ll keep you all posted on the progress!
