Speaking of life imitating art... Here's a couple more projects that have made it from drawing board to street/show floor...

The 2010 Amsoil/Street Rodder Road Tour Car, built by the incredibly talented Zane and his crew at Cotati Speed Shop:

The artwork:


...and the car (which saw wheel swaps through different legs of the tour, giving it a new look on each leg):

... a '52 Buick named "Resilience", built by my pal Tim at Strange Motion... the car scooped a ton of awards, including the Eldon Titus Memorial Design Award... it'll be in Long Beach later this month at the Motorama:

The rendering:



A page from the build book we put together with the owners:



One-off wheel design (bridging GM aluminum wheel design from the 60's through modern times):



Final wheel:



...oh, and the car!

Thanks, man! Wow... almost forgot about this thread...
All of the work above was Illustrator (starting with pencil sketches on paper). Speaking of pencil sketches, if you'd like, I created and posted a tutorial on drawing here on my site: Tutorial: How to draw a hot rod The upcoming tutorials will get more into the digital side of things. (they'll all be part of my book)

A few more recent ones, if interested:

'55 Chevy (you may have seen this in Popular Hot Rodding, or not...):



...top chopped, car in progress:


'56 Chevy and interior:



...in progress:



...completed:
