This digital painting (see above) is one of a collection of “Distinctly Detroit Memories” promotional illustrations. The inspirational “Dramatic Perspective” images and the actual “Zoo Train” photo reference (see image below bottom) inspired my rough sketch (see image below top). (Photoshop/Illustrator)

Merry Christmas

Merry_Christmas_Lights_WJust having a little illustrative fun with a strand of curling multicolor Christmas lights. Happy Holidays 2014! My rough idea and color sketch (see image below top). The Christmas lights, snowflakes and type were created using Illustrator (see image below right and left). The texture (see image below middle) came from a bad photocopy. (Photoshop/Illustrator)

60 Thunderbird

60_Thunderbird_WThe car designs of the late 50’s were beautiful to the artistic eye. With their long sleek profiles and wonderful tailfins. My digital graphic illustration (above) was created by using a limited color palette and simplifying shapes. Then a body color change to sharpen the curves. The “T-Bird” (see photo below middle) was found and shot at the Meadowbrook Concours d’Elegance Car Show in Rochester Hills. (Photoshop/Illustrator)
