Some examples of my art work depicting vehicular subjects in addition to railroads. If you are interested in having a commission done of a special car, truck, motorcycle, boat, or plane you may own or desire to own, I can produce a portrait of it in which ever form you may prefer. Black and white pencil, colored pencil, oil on canvas, as well as many different paper sizes. Also with or without a background added behind the main subject. I like to focus on including features that make the vehicle unique from others of it's kind, such as a specific tread pattern on the tires, license plates, window stickers, special paint, or modifications. If you are planning a restoration or a custom paint job and would like to see a rendering of what the vehicle will look like after it is finished to aid you in decision making, this is an excellent way of literally putting your ideas onto paper.
1969 Dodge Charger
I finished this drawing on January 15, 2004 and gave it to my friend Pete Aimo. This is an 18" X 24" automotive portrait in Berol prismacolor colored pencil of Pete's 1969 Dodge Charger. I made sure that it was correct right down to matching the tread pattern in the tires, I also included the small stickers for the Mississippi Police Assoc. on the windshield, and had his license plate as well. The car has a built 440 V-8 engine and a four-speed manual transmission. It's an awesome piece of machinery, and I have driven it on a few occasions.
1970 Plymouth GTX
This is an 18" X 24" drawing that I finished on January 24, 1994 and gave as a gift to my friend Pete Aimo. This is a Berol prismacolor colored pencil automotive portrait of Pete's 1970 Plymouth GTX. I added an interesting touch to this drawing in that I drew a set of keys laying in the foreground. The idea that I had in mind was for the viewer to feel that they could walk right into the picture, grab the keys, and take the car for a ride. This car has a 440 V-8 engine, a four-speed transmission, and power windows which was a rare option for a musclecar of it's day. I have ridden in this car, and it goes as good as it looks.
