Type 57S Torpedo

The Bugatti Trust asked me to do an illustration for an article on the Type 57S Torpedo - a very rare car - seemingly only exhibited once then dismantled! Looking forward to finding out more.

I drew it very quickly without any preparatory sketches and for once I'm quite pleased with the sketch - usually I find it rather tricky without having the car in front of me. Working fast and loose must be the answer.

Very nice! Inspiring.
I just wrote up an article on the death of the Bugatti company, check it out if you have time!

Stefan - had I not known that you had drawn this I would have thought that it was an original drawn by Toulouse-Lautrec - great work! Such movement and skill in handling the line and I love the suggested background of the sky and so forth. Very aesthetically pleasing and satisfying.
