Plummer Design offers not only great graphics but some fine car art as well.  For automotive illustration its all in the details.   Knowing what the difference is between a 1957 and 1958 Chevrolet is so important.  Then to create a design that appeals to a wide range of Chevrolet buffs, which is not hard to do.  Thus is the task of delivering a piece of automotive artwork.

The samples here show details from completed projects.  *Spoiler alert - My first love as a young boy was drawing cool cars.



Creating the Automotive artwork:

It always starts with a sketch (great illustration has to start somewhere).  A sketch conveys what the customer desires and how I am interpreting it.  Then once down on paper, it is straight into building the illustration as vector artwork.
Every artist has a path to completing the piece.  As for me the preference is to build my designs as mechanical pieces, that is to build the color separations as the art is developed.  This method saves time later when running films.


THIS PAGE - Shine and Show

The gathering of car enthusiasts is a place where great conversations happen.  Nothing but folks smiling and sharing the story of the shiny car they represent.  When drawing, I try to convey the excitement these owners have for their vehicles - to establish 'kinship'.  It matters, as the attendees will be wearing the shirt I designed for many years to come.  True story: On a flight from LAX I was behind a fellow wearing a shirt I designed years previous!   Viewable PDF below >
