The so-called ‘off’ season has been anything but here. My first 2020 livery comission came in early September with various discussions months before that and there has been no let up since.
My first full weekend off will actually be the weekend of the Rolex 24 when I’ll be miles away from Daytona watching from BC, Canada.
It has been a great year so far and I will endeavor to update the website more often in 2020, but for now a quick over view on the various liveries and art at the Rolex 24.

I have worked with GEAR’s Mark Ruggieri on a number of sponsorship proposals in recent months. Just before Christmas, the team decided to make a big entrance at the ROAR with a one off livery. I had two days to pull something together, if I was going to accept the challenge.
To be honest, I was already overloaded, but I’ve had an idea for a Pop-Art style ‘Art Car’ for a few years, but as its not very corporate friendly, there was never the right opportunity until now.
Snowed under with livery and Spotter Guide work at the moment, so just a quick post to show off two liveries which will be used at the 24H of Dubai later this week.
First off, LAP57 UAE are one of the most well known middle-eastern teams and have entered most of the 24H Dubai races, I remember attending in 2011 and seeing them racing their Integras. The team have developed and they will be running a new JAS built Honda Civic Type-R to TCR Touring Car regulations.
The team wanted a clean livery which left space for sponsors over the coming races and a development of their current look.
The livery has come out really well. Probably one of the cleanest liveries I’ve designed in quite a while, but it works with the Blue and White contrasts.
The team even sent over an additional video showing them applying my logo – Thanks guys! Really appreciate this.
The other entry is running under the new Saudi Arrows team.
This team commissioned me to create a design quickly after seeing my previous work at the 24H including the Saudi Falcons and the 2011 winning Team Need for Speed BMW Z4’s.
This was one round of design with basic placement, so we developed a design based off an element of their logo, Taking the arrow head and elongating. This livery was also designed for a McLaren 650 GT3 and Radical race cars. For this event, the Audi R8 will be run by 2016 winners, WRT.
