great links!

many of the drawings on Carl Olsen's (former head of transportation design at CCS) site first were posted up on the wall in our trans classes at CCS,

and Jason White's Old School Vis Com book is great, and it too pays homage to many of the skills and techniques present in your first link. Incidentally, I have the original drawing of the Yardely BRM racecar from the OSV slideshow on my book shelf, looking at it right now .

@yo: I took a look at ccs-olsen.com and I love it!

Carl and Sonia Olsen also have a personal website with some great transportation designs from the 60s-80s, and also some great table top/electronic/appliance design:

http://olsen-designs.com/

The sketches on the site are pencil, marker, and gouache on Canson paper. Some samples of the Turkish Anadol Coupe:

A few sketches from Frank Lloyd Wright's Marin County Civic Center. I obsessively photo documented the buildings here:

The model is also really cool.
