This past monday,G.A.S announced our secret project supercar the GTR-1 at the LA auto show. Ive been lead design on this project for the last several months designing along side with the big boss...exciting knowing that this car is near complete..debuts 2013. The car is a not only an homage to shelby and the GT40, but its a car that is to carry on the DNA and spirit of the GT as if it were not discontinued 6 yrs ago...Heres some speculative renderings i did a few months ago of how the car is going to look...prrrreeetty close.

This week i came across an image that left me in awe....It was the portrait of a redheaded girl, At first i thought it was a photo until i read the description..It was drawn hyper-realistically with only 6 different colored ball point pens!! It inspired me to put the stylus down and return back to good ole fashion scratching...Forgot how fun and challenging it is to draw manually. Heres some evidence....Really considering trying to do a pen sketch a day...

SEMA is right around the corner... it always has me reflecting on the past shows and thinking what will be the next head turner i can create ... I dug thru the archives and to this day i'm still pleased with my head turning concepts that ive been so fortunate to lead design and make a reality. This year will be no different..
SEMA 2010: Sharpie Ford Fiesta design
SEMA 2011: Ford Focus "ATK" design

The touring wagon body style has been growing on me the last few years....saw alot of them in my recent euro trip.....But it was the 2013 BMW 3series touring that absolutely made me love the touring body style....So i thought i create my dream 3 series by doing some chop work.Enjoy "Lil red riding in the hood".

A few months ago a friend of mine mentioned this website to me SIMKOM.com. I checked it out and immediately fell in love...The work that was posted on the site was inspiring. Really fun to see so many different sketch styles and designs. In December 2011, I contacted the Website owner (marek) to see if any of my work was worthy to be added to the wall....about 3 weeks later and a couple of emails...Marek emailed me letting me know that some of my work was up... The work is definitely not the standard context that you usually see on the site, but its different which i like, for he acknowledged custom automotive design :)

A very well known magazine approached GAS to create and build a corporate vehicle using a 2012 Honda pilot as the base...Usually when i design i like to start out wild and cool as possible just so i can get an idea of our directions..It allows for pulling back and watering down the concept to a more tangible concept....So this was an idea that i'm pretty sure wont ever happen, but it s just a fun idea :) Will post the finished vehicle in the upcoming months.
