1981 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

81 Trans Am

Hey there folks! I just finished a commissioned piece of a 1981 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. A wonderful fellow from Strongsville, Ohio wanted a cartoon of his car and him, in an environment that suggested it is his home town, to hang in his office. He provided me with some wonderful reference images and it all came together rather nicely… I think.

Anyway, as per usual, it is a digital piece, created in Photoshop using an Intuos 5 graphic tablet.

Free CARtoons Facebook Cover Image

That’s right boys and girls!! You can download a Krass & Bernie CARtoons Magazine cover image for your Facebook profile or fan page. It is possibly the most remembered title image of the Krass and Bernie comic with a few tweaks and modifications. I have colored it… the main difference… and expanded its dimensions to be that of a Facebook cover image. I removed the “Krass and Bernie” title text and put the CARtoons logo instead along with a Facebook logo in the corner. Just click on the thumbnail below to download the image.


1934 Ford Coupe Featured

34 Ford Coupe

I’m doing my best to stay in theme with the previous CARtoons posts and elaborating on the classic American muscle cars. Don’t get concerned, I will eventually move on to sport cars and other countries’ contributions to the automotive racing industry. At the moment I have been illustrating the cars, and trucks, that I have had personal dealings with… in one way or another. The ’79 Toyota pickup was because I owned one; the ’57 Chevy because it’s simply a classic, and this ’34 Ford is similar to one my Dad built. I wanted to add a photo of it but… I couldn’t find it… and so it goes.

Anyway, here’s my 1934 Ford Coupe, seen in one of its more natural surroundings of a drive in restaurant complete with neon lights. I did this completely in Photoshop, from sketch to signature, using a Wacom Intuos 5 graphic tablet.

57 Chevy

As I stated in my previous CARtoon of an 1979 Toyota HiLux pickup truck, I have rediscovered my fascination in drawing cartoons of cars, or CARtoons. I have always enjoyed George Trossley’s artworks in CARtoons magazine and I have come to the conclusion that I should do more of my own CARtoons. For now I am simply doing caricaturized portraits of cars and trucks, maybe some planes and helicopters and such later as well, but I intend to do some strips later. If the stories come to me!

Anyway, here is my latest, a 1957 Chevy Bel Air. Maybe THE classic American muscle car? It is not 100% accurate. It is missing the chrome tips on the fins and hood inlays, along with the chromed “Chevrolet” text above the “V” emblem on the hood, not to mention there isn’t a door handle or lock!

Cool!

It was painted in MyPaint and Photoshop using a Wacom Intuos 5 graphic tablet… well, everything except the clouds… I got a bit lazy… forgive me…
