Check out this beautiful concept sketch I came across from 1938 for Cadillac. The signature says G. Lawson but I wasn't able to find out anything else about it.

I think this is the right place to ask this question:

I once heard that markers were invented as an easier replacement for water color in design sketches. If this is true, when did this switch occur? I was just trying to figure out how those Loewy sketches on page 12 of this thread were made. Looks like graphite pencil, water color with a wide brush, and maybe prismacolor?

Magic Marker, pastel, Prismacolor pencil, white gouache, needed eraser. Magic Marker's were invented in the 50's. I remember getting high from the fumes when I used them a lot for a rendering.

Yes! Those are awesome. They were already illegal when I was in school but if you could score a set with the refill fluids you were golden!

The media for the Buran (Soviet Space Shuttle) - pencil and tracing paper?
Snark aside, those Soyuz cutaway watercolors are lovely.

I seem to only drive cars by Bracq. E28 is just sold but still got the W115 Benz. Wonder what the newest car he designed is...?
