    As promised John here's your 'Coptermobile' illustration I did over the weekend for you. The scan and jpeg here are pretty soft as opposed to the original which is much sharper. The written script is much more legible, enjoy! PM your mailing address and I'll get it off on the next stage. Also did a little 12 cylinder fun over the weekend as well, might even add color to it later. I've posted some other illustrations I did for Road & Track, Motor Trend, etc. in the 70's and 80's in the Porsche and General Automotive forums if you want to check them out.:D

    Yeah Robbie, I just have to dig through some boxes and find the"Dr Martin Dyes" I use to add color and do the illustration on illustration board to keep it from warping when adding liquid.

    No list yet, but business as an automotive collateral creative director sucks right now so I'm considering putting an ad in 'Ferrariads' here at FChat to do illustrations of your car, airplane, whatever to help pay the mortgage, lol. Anyway thanks 'Brothers' I'll keep you posted as to what's going on.:D

    Here's my Speedball pen, India ink and the mess I make doing one of these illustrations.Depending on the complexity of the drawing they take about 6-12 hours to do. Also found this old issue of Road & Track with one of the spot illustrations.........1981.....Geez, 28 years ago, and that's one of the later ones.

    People with artistic ability amaze me! I can barely print legibly, let alone draw. LOL You do fantastic work.

    BTW, I also would be interested in having you do a color portrait of my F355 Berlinetta.

    OMG I didn't know you did this. Please put SS 78 on the list for a print. :) What a great way to commemorate my car!

    You know looking at that V-12 sketch makes me wonder about stuffing one of those in the engine bay. Heh, heh, just dreaming. It'd prolly fit too as long as there wasn't any transmission. ;)

    Cool Vince, your 348 is amazing.........yeah, good luck getting that rock'n 12 in the engine bay, I think you're going to need all the 'Stooges' in on that one.;)

    We'll see if I can find my color dyes in a box somewhere, heck they probably dried up a cazillion years ago.....hell, gives me an excuse to get new ones.

    James, if you won't tell I won't;).........81 seems like yesterday.

    Thank you Pappy!:D

    Yeah I need a drawing of my cars with my race planes (the fast one is 50+% faster than the F355 with half the cylinders :D). I just never seem to get the cars to the airport to get the family portrait!

    Just finished this illustration of Dan Gurney's V-12 'Eagle' that he won the the 1967 Belgian Grand Prix with. I remember seeing this car in person, what a piece of racing F-1 history, just amazing.

    Are you freaking kidding me??? That is awesome :eek:!

    Man, let me know when you can finally get around to doing my #63SS for me, but it appears I am way down the list, but hey, I am patient.

    Looks like you could create a pretty good second hand business off of this eh?

    I got my illustration in the mail a few days ago and I'm still in awe. I'm having it matted and framed this week and will post up some pics when it's done.

    Thanks a million, it's just beautiful.:)
