Chevy Master

Outline line drawing of a 1938 Chevrolet Master 2-door sedan, based on my photo of the example in the Sharjah Classic Cars Museum (UAE). Really happy with the way this one turned out:

Just sold on an XL Art Print, my 700th POD sale 🙂 I didn’t have time to post about my 500th and 600th sales as I was so busy creating content ready for the anticipated Christmas rush, which has arrived as promised – 208 sales in November (compared to 75 in October) and 183 already in December

As always my thanks to everyone who has spent money on one of my designs, very much appreciated!

Scout II

IH (International Harvester) Scout II line drawing – my POD best seller (10% of total sales) 😁

I’ve been very busy creating new line drawings of classic cars and trucks – and the occasional bike and aircraft 🙂 – and just made my 300th sale. As ever my thanks to everyone who has bought one!

200!

200th POD (Print On Demand) sale today, Dodge Durango outline on an asphalt T-shirt

It took 269 days to make my first 100 POD sales, just 47 for the second hundred – after a slow start doing better every month and learning a lot along the way. So much so that I spent most of August updating my earlier designs, evidently a phase many of us go through!

My sincere thanks as ever to everyone who has bought one of my works, very much appreciated and I hope you enjoy them 🙂

This particular design based on a Durango I owned for a couple of years in Bahrain, the perfect car for me in that place at that time, very fond memories of it

Still We Stand

My image of old pilings on the beach at Spurn Point, Yorkshire, was voted into 6th place in the Your Art Gallery “Seaside Vacation” contest

I usually stick to juried contests as I’m not willing to go pestering for votes on social media, so finishing in the top ten in a voted contest is quite gratifying (I join in the YAG contests in the hope that the exposure will bring more views of my YAG portfolio, where I have images for sale)

Abstract exhibition

“Scratch” selected for inclusion in the London Photo Festival “Abstracts” exhibition being held at Harris+Hoole in Twickenham London for 3 months from 15 September

“We are delighted to announce the winners and exhibitors of our abstract photography competition. The standard was so high that we’ve opened up 5 more exhibition places!” – really pleased that my entry has made it into the exhibition

My image is of a vintage and well used leather covered desktop at a country manor in Norfolk; unclear what it was used for to have been marked in this way, and whether it ended up in this condition before or after being relegated to a stone outbuilding used by the servants – either way, full of character and history

Classics with colours

A departure from the monochrome pencil lines of my current classic car outline drawing project, I was playing around with ideas for Halloween and Christmas special editions based on my line drawing of a 1930s Morris 8 (which seems to lend itself to this sort of experimentation) and this is where it lead…

Not really what I had in mind but interesting enough in their own right – I especially like the way the car outlines seem to float above the background in an almost 3D effect – that I have made them available in my soitwouldseem shops on Teepublic and Redbubble where they can be applied to print-on-demand products including T-shirts, prints, posters, clocks, mugs, phone cases etc
