This one is just so striking and yet simple.  Love the strong contrast.

Thanks.
I used a photo reference for the drawing. The photo has much more detail and the shading is no where near as dramatic as I make it in the drawing. The white horizontal surfaces of the body has much more going on in the photo that I totally leave white. The shadow of the tires and body are not as dramatic in the photo as in the drawing. I wanted the drawing to jump out at you in kind of a surreal way, and in that I was happy with how it turned out.

Yah, the car I drew is almost 50 years old now. Hamilton and Button will be in the US in less than 10 days. Go McLaren.

Still a sweet looking piece of machinery I'd say. Yep, I've got tickets for all three days. Got them for Father's Day actually. Can't believe I get to go.
