Porsche, Ferrari, Jaguar, Corvette, Alfa Romeo. Sebring, LeMans, Daytona, Laguna Seca, Road Atlanta, Watkins Glen. These are the magic words for car people.
I like cars. A lot. Specifically cars from the golden age of motor racing starting in the 50's through the 80's. My thought has always been if I can't own a Jaguar D-Type, I can at least draw one. It has always been my pleasure to meet and work with other enthusiasts.
Looking for custom car artwork? Unique garage art of your favorite car? This is my specialty. If you are in Florida or even beyond, I can meet with you and figure out your ideal project.
I love Singer Vehicle Designs version of the perfect 911. I also love the band Catherine Wheel who did the epic song "Black Metallic" in the 1990's. Rob Dickinson is the visionary behind both, so I figured why not make a mashup of the band and the car company?
Second Singer 911 design I did inspired by the Bahrain car and the Catherine Wheel song "Gasoline"
Brian Redman Porsche 908
I specifically did this illustration for Brian Redman himself to sign and hang on my wall. When I had him sign a print, I gave him one to keep as well. Wonder if he still has it?
Cafe Racer guy
I love the craftsmanship and looks of a cafe racer bike. This design is now available as a sticker at my site www.petrol-emotion.com
One of the most beautiful race cars ever made. Fact.
Logo design in the Tampa Bay, Florida area.
Bold and memorable. That's what I aim for with the logos I create. I love to come up with the most simple, direct way to get a message through.
Branding - The Path Bicycle & Ride Shop
The Path Bicycle and Ride Shop is a small bike shop in Downtown Clearwater, Florida. Along with bikes you can also buy awesome coffee and vinyl records. The owner, Gary has made it the coolest, most original shop in the state. I have created a series of jerseys, t-shirts and other graphics along with the line "Ride Unique" that really make the shop stand out from the crowd. Through a mixture of rock & roll imagery and a laid back atmosphere, the Path is a great place to buy a bike or just hang out and chat while drinking Cuban coffee.

Waterdog Supplements Active
A new venture that seeks to provide the finest supplements for dogs. The first product offered in 2017 is called Active, an "all-in-one" recovery supplement for active dogs. I am the art director and marketing person for Waterdog. www.waterdogsupplements.com
Natural Powers Desire and Dream
Created the logo and packaging for Natural Powers women's supplements.
Vehicle Wraps & Boat Graphics
I love designing large scale vinyl graphics. I am located in the Tampa Bay / St. Petersburg / Clearwater area where there are lots of boats. If you want it stand out from the rest, contact me for a truly original design for your boat wrap.
My designs are completely original, so you will not see the same art on another boat. No clipart is ever used. I can even provide the art for shirts, stickers or whatever else you may want!
The same goes for your vehicle. My graphic style is perfect for a design that will stand out in a sea of sameness! Advertise your business with a customized vehicle wrap.
Got a race car? Let me do your custom race car graphics. I promise you a livery that won't be overlooked.
Though I don't do the actual vinyl wrap installation, I can assist with local installers that will work seamlessly with your new wrap design.
Yes, digital is nice but using pencil and paint is good for the soul. Some of these pieces may be available for sale. Message me if interested.

Porsche 356 Door Art
I found this gorgeously patina'd Porsche 356 door on Craigslist and immediately knew it was meant to be wall art. I painted it in the style of a 1950's La Carrera Panamericana race car driven by a woman named Jaqueline Evans. It was noticed by British car magazine Octane and featured in it's "Gear" section in the March 2017 issue.

Moving sign mockup
This is a quick concept for an outdoor rotating sign mixing records and bicycles.
Sometimes I take photographs. Sometimes they come out pretty nicely. I believe a good designer will have a good eye for proper placement of a subject no matter what the medium.
