A hi-res desktop version of the illustration I did for The Automobile. Right click, view all sizes, original to download.

Stutz Black Hawk - The Automobile

I had the pleasure of reviewing a wonderful book recently - Frank Lockhart, American Speed King. Lots of impressive photos and I learned a lot about his earlier career as a board track racer. His LSR car was truly revolutionary, much more compact than those he was up against - and beautiful too. Sadly a tyre failure at Daytona beach ended his short life.

As well as the review I had the opportunity to use the inside cover for an illustration so I created this digital painting of the Stutz Black Hawk.

Road Trip!

Today we set off for Dieppe. They'll be celebrating the Grand Prix which was first held there in 1907. I'll be a passenger in a Monarch GP - chain drive, V8 Curtiss aero engine, no windscreen - it'll be amazing. Hoping to get lots of sketching and photoing done too. Salut maintenant!
