1967 Maserati Ghibli Artwork

1967 Maserati Ghibli

I just finished this artwork of a Maserati Ghibli. I like the Ghibli because of it’s long low shape and it’s shark-like front end. Below is a quick video that will help give you an idea of what I am talking about.

The Maserati Ghibli was styled by Giorgetti Giugiaro and debuted in 1966 at the Turin Motor Show.

Under the hood Maserati used a detuned version of its quad-cam V8 racing engine. The engine used dry sump lubrication, which meant that the oil is held in a separate tank and pumped around the engine.

Super Fast Drawing Video

I ran across this video of someone drawing a Mustang the other day and thought what a great way to promote your artwork. Of course, the artist isn’t actually drawing that fast. What they are doing is drawing at normal speed and then playing it back really fast.

I found out that this artwork took 13 hours to do and was done by pencil artist Eivind Josefsen from Norway. He has a site called Drawing Studio where he has other drawings and tutorials.

Video is something I am interested in doing. Have you seen any other automotive drawing videos like this or maybe you have done one yourself?

1949 Cadillac Club Coupe Artwork

This is artwork I created of a 1949 Cadillac Series 62 two-door Club Coupe, also called a Sedanette. I started this piece at home, but ended up doing most of the vector line art while traveling on the road in California.

The Cadillac Sedanette is a beautiful car with a striking fastback body design. This fastback design is what inspired me and so naturally it became the focal point of the piece. Below are some various images to show you some of the detail.

Some interesting facts about the 1949 Cadillac Club Coupe is that about 7,515 were made and they sold for $2,966 each. Maximum speed was 100 mph and gas mileage around 12 to 20 miles per gallon. The Cadillac Motor Division was given Motor Trend’s first “Car of the Year” award in 1949. Another interesting item is that the gas filler on these cars are hidden under left tail light.

Due to the long low look of these cars, they make great subjects for customizing. Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top used a 1949 Cadillac Club Coupe for his customized car called “CadZZilla”. You can see CadZZilla near the end of the “Double-Back” video below, from the movie “Back to the Future 3”.

Posters of the 1949 Cadillac Club Coupe artwork can be found on my main art site. See my other Cadillac artwork which includes “Fins – 1960 Cadillac“, “1958 Cadillac” and a “1959 Cadillac“.

Cadillacs of all models are great subjects for Automotive Artwork. What Cadillac year/model inspire you to do create artwork?
