    Carsten Christiansen Finished the drawing he was doing for me. I got it in the mail today along with 3 prints. It is just AMAZING. I know many of you saw the thread and pics while in process but to see it in person is stunning! Can't wait to have it framed.

    Thank you again Carsten--just an outstanding talent!
    here's a pic.....there were a few other things drawn in on the final drawing that finished it off but this should give you the idea lol.

    That is very impressive! I can imagine it framed, over one's desk to provide constant inspiration.

    it is 16 x 11... roughly two standard pieces of paper side by side. The pic seriously does not do it justice, it's amazing to see the thousands of tiny lines.... just nutty. Now to find a place to have it framed in Black/Silver with Ferrari logo on it.... hmmmm. Anyone got a clue for a place around South Florida?

    On the back of the original, he wrote a nice note :

    'Todd Arnold's Ferrari F430 F1
    This exclusive drawing was made over a period of 2 years between 2005 - 2008!
    Based on photos and ideas supplied by Todd and carefully executed by yours truly.'

    Then he put the VIN # on there and signed it. True class.

    Fred, he is a member of this site.... my drawing was a thread in the showroom section as it was in process complete with pics of its creation throughout the process over the past couple years.

    Hey Todd-buddy :)

    I am very happy to see that you finally recieved the drawing that you waited for years to get.......and even more happy to see that you have taken the time to study the work carefully, just as I recommended! :) Did you count the lines already?? ;)
    Of course, what makes me most happy, is to see that you're still satisfied with the drawing after holding it and seeing it for real, and last but not least.......I am immensely happy and proud, to see all the wonderful comments from all the contributors within this thread!
    Thanks Todd, and thanks gentlemen, I really appreciate and value your compliments!


    Cheers

    Carsten

    Carsten, a true work of art. My compliments! I wish I had the time to do some drawing - it used to be a big hobby of mine. But hey, can't have it all.

    Wow, that's awesome. I'd love to get something like that done with my cars in front of my house. I'm smelling a potential Fchat sponsor here. I'm pretty certain it'll pay off nicely. :)

    Would love to help you out if you were nearer South Carolina. Just make sure that they use conservation (or museum) mounting when framing and all acid-free mats.
    If they ask you what that is, take your artwork and run!

    I never believed in God until I saw one of Carsten's pictures. Can we see a bigger version of that picture...? Perhaps pieces of it posted here, or one, large image hosted elsewhere...? The attention to detail is impeccable.
