OK. OK. If one car did sum up the Boy Racer category in the late 70’s, then it has to be Ford’s RS2000, based on the ever so popular Escort MK2. With it’s distinctive “droop-snoot” it stood out from most other cars in its class. Teenage boys all over the country dreamt of owning one. … Read moreFord Escort MK2 RS2000
Continuing with the illustrations and sketches themes we have the Wedges collection. A couple of these on the main image above have been seen previously (The Countach and the Mercedes C-111). In addition to these we have a couple of concept/prototypes including the Lancia Stratos Zero Concept and the Maserati Boomerang. This image is a … Read moreWedges!
After completing a few more “realistic” drawings recently, I decided to try a few illustrations and sketches. This one started off just as a standard Beetle (Type 1), I then altered the original to make the convertible. After realising that all three types (and variants) are on the same platform (2,400 mm / 94.5 inches) … Read moreVW Types 1, 2 & 3 (Dub Life)
Before I start, I have to say that I’ve never been a big fan of the 911 and all of it’s derivatives. Like a certain ex-Top Gear presenter, I see them as a big Beetle. I know there’s plenty of amazing engineering in them and also a great everyday drive for a sports car, but….. … Read morePorsche 911 GT3 RS
A very under-rated British classic which is now starting to become more popular. With a long production run from 1975 to 1996, plenty of these models are still around. Some much stronger than others! The wheels….the wheels were a nightmare, but luckily, much of the front wheel could be used for the rear. As this … Read moreJaguar XJS
How 80’s is this car? Very. The truly iconic Peugeot 205 GTI launched in 1984 adorned the walls of many a young lad. Today, it is still classed as a benchmark for newer “Hot-hatches”. For this drawing I tried to give it a more life like feel to it. After about 25 hours of work … Read morePeugeot 205 GTI 1.9
This one I’ve tried to keep a little more illustrative than realistic. Having said that, there’s plenty of detail in this one, especially in the lights which probably took more time than any other area. Hopefully the portrayal of speed is carried through into the final drawing.
Here’s a freebie for you. Just download this file [from here], print out and colour in. You’re welcome!
Another one of my #MovieCars series. I’ve been meaning to do this one for a while, but it being black did put me off. Why? Because when drawing black cars, they’re seldom actually black, but more of greys and whites from the reflections of their almost mirror like surfaces. So, when I draw a black … Read morePontiac Firebird Trans-Am
The Talbot Sunbeam Lotus, was as it’s name suggests, based on the much maligned Talbot Sunbeam. Which to be honest wasn’t that good but after Talbot commissioned Lotus to develop a Rally Car (which won the 1981 WRC Championship) and the subsequent road going version. So Lotus threw in a 2.2 litre engine, stiffer sports … Read moreTalbot Sunbeam Lotus
