Earlier this year Alex Griendling launched his latest collective art project, Future 52. Over the course of a year, 52 artists from around the world showcase visions of the future, from spacecrafts and robots to weapons and equipment. I asked if I could get in on the action and Alex was happy to have me on board. Here is what I’ve come up with.
It’s been a while since I made a new Pocket Livery, but fortunately a message from an anonymous user gave me an idea for a fresh one:

Hi mate, I was having a short look through the questions people use to make you (like car suggestions), and I was reminded of a beautiful car livery, that might won a championship this year. It’s Marco Wittmann’s BMW M4 Ice Watch. The car is white based with the rooftop on black, and rainbow colors striped. Take a look and consider making it, I’ll surely use it. Thanks, wish you all the best, I love your work. Greetings from Brazil.
Fortunately for this reader, I’ve been watching DTM highlights this season (don’t have the time to watch it live, plus their YouTube channel's quite comprehensive) and I've already been aware of Marco Wittmann's exploits and his unstoppable charge to the Drivers' Title.
After finishing the Camper Van artwork yesterday I decided to spend some time on this Pocket Livery and get it out there before moving on to my next project, so here it is.
If you’ve been following my Twitter or Facebook you’ll know that I occasionally share some of the interesting creative works I find across the web.
Sometimes I’ll remember these works and want to go back and look at them again, but unfortunately the timelines on social media pages are not the most intuitive in terms of navigation. So, I’ve set up a new blog to give these things a more permanent home.
Every so often, somebody will get in touch with me via email about my artwork. Normally it’s people wondering if I’ll ever sell or distribute my F1 posters again (no plans right now, sorry) but occasionally something comes in that I feel compelled to answer in detail.
I got one such email recently from a young artist in the UK, who’s aiming to become a designer in the next few years. Since I get these types of mails occasionally I figured it’d be best to post some words on the blog instead of copy/pasting to my outbox, so here goes.
What will you do with the dimensions of the F2002?
The F2002 sketch was part of an idea I had that ultimately didn’t work out. When creating a digital version things didn’t pan out the way I wanted and as such I scrapped the project. The failure of this lead me “back to the drawing board” where I ended up developing the concept of Ten Champions.
It’s been a while since I created some new artwork, but then again a lot has happened in the past year. The new website and blog went live in March and since then things have been rather busy. Fortunately, I found some time to work on a new project, and today’s the day it goes live.
