After considerable effort I’ve finally finished the latest design in my Motor Style Inc. series of prints. Motorsport Heroes has taken approximately 150 hours to complete, with a large amount of that time spent exhaustively researching all of the drivers and cars featured in the 15 individual illustrations.
The concept for this poster was to collectively show the wide variety of designs in global motorsport series, particularly during the classic decades of the 1950′s to 1980′s, when many highly iconic racing machines and legendary drivers competed in events around the world. I was very keen to only feature drivers that personally won many races (and championships) and chose cars that achieved great results and/or are considered to be fine examples of automotive engineering and design. I entered the 1990′s only to include 7-time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher – and to add the beautiful Jordan 191 – one of my personal favourite modern F1 designs. A few close-up details:
