When you use the front of a car, you have to create many different shapes. You have to create very different shapes if you’re a painter. You have to do this because cars can really change shape when you push them. They can change form.
I know, when you first got into car drawing, you were sort of intimidated by the process, but actually, it’s actually, it’s a very powerful process. You learn a huge amount in those first years. You learn so much, that I can take one small car, if I had the right idea for a car, and I could draw it as easily as a child drawing a dog. It’s incredible.
You know, like, I think, for me personally, I’m very sensitive to shapes and light, and I’m just so fascinated by it. My work is just a little bit on the far ends of that spectrum. You know, I think, you do it one way, and then you do another. That’s just how the brain functions.
Do you ever feel like you’ve exhausted or lost what you can do as a car artist?
No. I think, it’s a good thing. I think it’s a very good thing to not be stuck at one type and one way. As an artist, you’re always trying to stretch yourself for as long as you can, and if I see an interesting car design and I can just create something cool with it, yeah, I don’t feel like I have to keep it one way.
So, that’s not always an issue for you. But, do you ever feel like you’re too old or too old to do this anymore?
I think I probably would have been more interested in car design if I was more like 20. [Laughs] I definitely think 20 might be a bit old for me.
Do you have any advice for anyone else?
Have fun. This car thing might be my last. I’ve said this a bit already and I may change my mind — if anybody out there ever writes some comments about this, if anybody out there ever has someone like me, or someone who feels like what I do is creative-wise worthwhile, and that they wouldn’t change it. I’ve been doing it since I was like 13. I can’t say that it’s just for me anymore. I’m very lucky that my life happens to intersect with this car thing.
Thank you very, very much
