LOL, I thought you would dig this one Richard. Did you watch the video as well? Yes, I wonder if he did anything in the 90's or 2000's?

Mining back through here looking for images to support a talk I'm giving, such a great treasure trove.

I never thought a Chevy Beretta could look so cool. This is a good one to show the kids how ugly products get made. A sick render goes a long way to selling anything.

But when you think of Chevy's of the time, that was the cream of the crop!

The economy of linework and gesture in the last four sketches is wonderful...so evocative of the stance and personality. Adding some foliage and a bikini - will remember that tactic for the future...

that sason sketch sits perfectly with the current cultural debate. It predates the Simca Bagheera ads by 3 decades.

I am just blown away by the generosity of my friends and clients! My good friend and first client of my new studio bought me this fantastic Syd Mead print he picked up in a vintage shop in Palm Springs. I’m adding it to some of my other Mead gear. When I was a design student in the 90s I was lucky enough to meet Mr Mead and get him to sign my copy of Studio Image 1, his self published book series. Can’t wait to hang this print in the studio!
