Just thought I'd share some photos I took last weekend at Laguna Seca at the American Le Mans Series races. It was an ear pounding blast! The race was exciting with the Penske Porsche Team going head to head with the Champion Audi team from start to finish. Although I have to say that even though the Porsche kept it exciting, the Audi clearly dominated the race. The V10 Turbo Diesel Audi was both insanely fast and incredibly quiet! While all the other cars roared by rattling every fiber of your being, the Audi would whoosh by almost sounding like a high power electric car. It would start at the head of the main straight in 4th or 5th place and halfway down it had passed every car and was several lengths in front by the first turn, incredible!
There were a host of other notable cars present including 2 Audi R8's and even the new S5 sedan. Several Porsche GTS R's and about 100 Ferrari's. The race went from 3:30 until 7 or so in the evening, so the last dozen laps were in the dark making for a dramatic finish. The results were obvious though, the Champion Audi V10 TDI's came in 1st and 3rd with the Porsche's 2nd and 4th.
Hope you enjoy the pics, I know I enjoyed the race! :-)

Well I mentioned that I'd have some news to report soon and here it is. I'll be speaking at the Gnomon School for Design in LA on December 1st! I'll be joining a host of other great artists from film and games. Check out the event page to see more info. I'll be talking about the need to make designs that work, or at least look like they work, and how that effects the outcome of the final product no matter what medium it ends up in.
That's all, hope to see you there!

Here's the final versions of the sneak peek I gave in the last post. They are mainly just 2 designs, but I thought I'd do a rally version of the one since when I designed it I had that in mind. So these both started out as ball point pen sketchs, but the line work from the pen is not really visible in these. The original sketch was no more then 3 inches across for each.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed drawing them. I just finished them an hour ago and thought I'd just post 'em up!
