Spotter Guides update

Been a busy few months with liveries and Spotter Guides, so updates have been less frequent on here than I would desire.

Anyway, a big update on the site in a few weeks with many of the 2017 liveries, but first off, just to let you know a number of new Spotter Guides have been released on sister-site, SpotterGuides.com

SG17_POR_USA_v1b_header

In addition to the usual IMSA WeatherTech and Continental Spotter Guides, updated for each race weekend, I have recently released the Official IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama Spotter Guide and the Official Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Spotter Guide. Both series racing this weekend at CoTA.

With these four series, a total of 13 cars will be carrying my liveries, plus a couple more I helped on a little. Pretty cool!

Nissan Le Mans and GT-R LM NISMO creative assets

At the end of May, Nissan Motorsport announced they will enter the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship including Le Mans with a full-factory effort of two LM P1 cars. The car will be called the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO and will make its testing debut towards the end of the year. In addition to sponsorship of my Le Mans Spotter Guides, I was separately commissioned to create some supporting car illustrations showcasing Nissan’s current and future involvement.

#ESRR_infographic_v8

I produced a number of vehicle illustrations to support their media coverage for the announcement and for Le Mans.

#ESRR_infographic_v8

This is a great example of how illustrations can give a client a consistent message, free of different photo shoots and lighting challenges.  The images were utilized a number of times making them excellent value for Nissan.
