    Help a starving artist...

    A friend of mine is starting up a business after years as a sign maker. Take a look at his site, http://www.car-tooner.com

    I gave him a pic of my 550 and this is what he came up with, pretty cool! I'd appreciate it if you could spread the word with car guys or bike guys you know.



    cheers!

    well dream your dream ..I know of a guy that was in advertising and was a cartoonist on the side,he said watching me build sports car and going for it inspired him to submit drawings to places in california and within a few months got hired for his cartoon and sold his share of his advertizing business and is in Ca doing cartoons you have to do what you love the rest will follow ....!

    PS the cars lifted showing floor pans is a unique twist thats a direction to add to your personal "THING" as its different in this style of drawings.Also your forward section thrust is another unique twist on this style of drawing, where you have a natural nack for that perspective,thats also a signature style to keep ..hey man good luck.
