Jaguar E-Type Series I
Without a doubt, the most beautiful car ever produced. Sweeping curves, a bonnet so long you could land an aeroplane on it, and a barking great big engine. I particularly like the early Series I cars, before the E-Type's later series and their Elvis impersonations (fatter, slower and uglier than the svelte original).
Let me tell you, drawing those *^&%#$@ wire wheels was a time-consuming labour of love!
Each print is physically embossed with the Classic Car Art logo in the bottom right corner, as well as hand signed and numbered by the artist.
Please note: the text watermarks on the images on this website are to prevent unauthorised use of these images. The actual prints do not, of course, have any such watermarks on them.
Each digital illustration takes about 40 hours. I make sketches from real life examples, and then digitally illustrate the original drawing and colour, finally refining the image with photo manipulation software to give more realistic effects such as the reflections in the paint and the sunlight on the windscreen. Each image is made of many layers: typically a background layer, with additional layers for tyres, bodywork, interior, chrome, reflections, dark shadows and highlights all superimposed successively on top.
Future releases in the coming months will include:
Mini & Mini Cooper
Alfa Romeo Veloce 2000
