A lovely sketch by the talented Rob Ijbema, which i’ve enthused about many times here…
These days i’m really annoyed by media photography; everyone goes to the same car shows and takes the same, typical, unstimulating, booooring photos of cars. I went in the search of more ‘experimental’ auto show photos and happened to find taken by Kai Petermann.
To be honest, I find them interesting….moderately dizzying, moderately useless, however reasonably entertaining! I believe the 2nd photo is of the new Dodge Dart, however I cannot be entirely sure!
Xander Walker (http://strassenversion.blogspot.com) is someone I have known for a while through The Auto Union community. A few weeks ago, a bunch of us met up for a dinner in Manhattan, and Xander introduced us to his fantastic artwork. I was blown away by the uniqueness and individualistic style of these paintings; and I can firmly say that they are WELL worth the humble $15 to $30 asking price he has put up for the pieces. Each one is hand signed, and perfect for framing. Speaking of which, I need to find time to get to a framing shop to buy a suitable frame for the 2 paintings I own by him. Each painting is hand finished and limited edition. Each piece is 24 x 17″ and packaged well!
In addition to the Alpine A110 pictured above (which obviously i DO have!!), here are some others available from Xander’s Etsy store:
