I have recently been working with the Merchandising division of IMSA on a range of commissions including these vector illustrations for t-shirts, which will be available from the IMSA Trucks, at the Circuit of The Americas and Petit Le Mans.
Hop over to my dedicated Portfolio Page for more information and examples on the merchandise I have been developing with IMSA.
Production of the 24Hr of Le Mans Spotter Guide is well under way and am pleased to announce that, in conjunction with DailySportscar.com, Nissan will be sponsoring the Le Mans Guide once again which is apt given their domination in the P2 category this year!
Also been working on some illustrations for Nissan for their recent GTR-LM NISMO announcement.
Feel free to thank Nissan NISMO on Twitter for the Spotter Guide support if you want to help out. Timescales are tight this year, so provisionally the 1st edition of the guide will be released on the 6th June, ahead of Scrutineering on my dedicated site, SpotterGuides.com for those travelling early.
The guide will then be updated after Scruitneering. As before the guide will be available as an A3 and A4 versions which will suit printing, desktop and mobile viewing…all free of charge and without the need of an app.

It is with great pleasure I can announce an agreement with IMSA to produce Spotter Guide art for the TUDOR United Sportscar Championship and the feeder IMSA Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge throughout 2014!
The guides will be included in a special fan guide which IMSA will be producing. This will be available online and also at the track.
The first guide for the Rolex24 is already in production with over 100cars to produce, 68 TUDOR and the leading 40 Continental cars. Teams have been contacted and liveries are now coming in. In addition I have created a number of liveries for teams this year. It is great to be continue the IMSA connection with the Spotter Guide series after six years producing the official American Le Mans Spotter Guides.
I will be at the ROAR Test in early January if any teams want to discuss their appearance in the new Spotter Guides.
Ensuring your race team, brand and partner stands out on track in 2014 is more important than ever.
With a premier new championship in North America, brand recognition through a striking team design and livery is important where full or oversubscribed grids will be the norm and multiple classes, of which many will have limited TV exposure. The series has also introduced new number and positon placements which will make livery designs more challenging.
Europe sees similar challenges with new rules in the Prototype class of the WEC taking the headlines and a wide range of GT championships including British GT, Blancpain Endurance Series, FIA GT and GT Open.
2014 is already taking shape for many teams with sponsorship and livery proposals underway. My first 2014 livery will be shown in a couple of weeks.
In preparation, I have built up an extensive selection of four view templates to kick start any livery projects which you commission. The majority of these templates have been created using OEM information and data.
The first Andy Blackmore Design Newsletter is now online. Designed to showcase my work to fans and teams, the newsletter will be an occasional email. The first issue is directed at drivers, teams and sponsors to ensure they are ready for the challenges which 2014 will bring.
The next newsletter will follow in December and have a Holiday/Christmas theme complete with a little bit of a challenge thrown in!
There after, the newsletter will be less regular so it doesn’t feel up your in boxes.
