    Hello gents,

    I would like to share with you the wonderful drawing of my beloved “Wolfarossa-Mobil”
    step-by-step.

    Carsten Christiansen from Denmark is a member of the European Ferrarichat.com…munity.
    We have discussed the purchase of an original Bugatti T37 A GP. A dear friend of mine is on the way to buy one of this rare & beautiful Bugattis to drive the Mille Miglia 2005.
    Carsten Christiansen is THE man and knows everbody & most of the Bugattis. He is so kind to help me and my friend with his knowledge and brilliant contacts.

    During our mails and conversation I came across his awesome web.site:
    http://www.bugattiart.com
    Amazing to see his wonderful class-act art work!
    I have never seen before such wonderful handdrawing Bugattis.

    In the Bugatti scene, Carsten is a fairly well known artist with a high repututation due to his knowledge of the marque and due the VERY small details put in each and every drawing that he makes. His passion for the Classic Automobile is not only limited to the Bugatti! The general interest in Classic cars was there since his teen years, and later his father in law was the founder of the Danish M.G. Car Club back in 1973, and he is the proud owner of the M.G. TA also found on Carsten's homepage.
    Carsten has twice been invited to the European Concours d' Elegance held each year in Germany to exhibit his wonderful works at the Artshow which is part of this concours. Each year the organizers invite Europe's TOPartists on the automotive scene to show their latest creations to the public.

    My first thought was of course: Can I ask him to draw my Ferrari Testarossa? Or does he only
    draws Bugattis?
    We have discussed this for a while off line and to make it short: YES!!!!
    This will be the very first Ferrari he is now drawing. What a honor & pleasure for me!!!!
    And its not just a Testarossa drawing – it will be MY personal “Wolfarossa-Mobil” with all
    the goodies! Including the 512M wheels on my `91TR, the licence plate with HD-TR 1991!!!
    That’s the absolut kick for me! Not just a Testarossa, he is drawing my personal TR!

    I have happy dropped him a Mail with the following pic of my beloved “beast”.

    Since the first day, I receive every day 1 or 2 jpeg`s from Carsten and I can watch step-by-step the wonderful drawing results and the birth of my personal one-off-a-kind
    class-act drawing.

    I will post here step-by-step all the drawings from the first day on till the final result to let you see how he is working on my “Wolfarossa-Mobil”

    Thanks a lot Carsten!!!!

    Thank you Waldo,
    please ask Carsten here from our forum or just drop him a mail over his web-site: http://www.bugattiart.com
    I think he would also like the idea to see his growing drawing on your Ferrari web-site.

    I think he's gifted with an enormous talent.

    Can i be so indiscrete and ask what such a drawing costs?
    Because he puts many hours in them, i don't my student budget can afford one ;)

    wow, just got the latest pic from Carsten!
    My beloved testarossa is getting so wonderful!
    Still missing the background and a few other things but I have been told that the complete drawing needs something like 60 hours!!!!
    Now after 35 hours its half-time.
    Enjoy together with me Carsten`s amazing half-time pic;)
    To get an impression of his breathtaking art-work; have a look on his fantastic web-site: http://www.bugattiart.com

    Just got the some new pics from Carsten.
    Carsten has been working the whole last night on the "Wolfarossa-Mobil.
    The testarossa looks now fantastic with the shading/reflections and indeed VERY SHINY!!!!

    Still not sure about the background. I would highly appreciate YOUR thoughts and ideas gents. Please help Christian and me a bit on this!!!!
    I have had a look on his web-site: www.bugattiart.com
    to get an idea what he has already done and whats possible. Maybe its also some input for you?

    Here are some close-ups and a new total size pic...enjoy.

    It's already looking fabulous. And about the background: Do you want a background like it's real or is 'fantasy' also good. Because I was thinking about the View at San Francisco and the Golden Gate...photographed (drawn) from the other side of the water...if you know what I mean...I think that that is a beautiful sight...I will try to find a picture of what I mean...

    :)
