Model A Update

27 hours in the shop last weekend, resulted in some serious tin work! Side panels are welded in and ready for final smoothing and blending. No more wheel wells! Here's some pictures I took over the past couple months of building. Still a long way to go, but the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter by the day.

Another jam session this weekend should help finish a lot of things....

Artist - Ed Tillrock

Okay, I don't do a whole lot on Art on here and I really should do more. I ran across Ed on the Jalopy Journal recently and checked out his site and was really taken back by his talent. He draws very life-like, full detail sketches of hot rods and also some amazing architectural renderings.

Here's what Ed had to say:

"I’ve been an illustrator in the Chicago-land area for over 30 years. My love of cars and drawing goes back to my earliest memories. Drawing cars when I should have been paying attention to my grade school teachers, and begging my dad to buy old junk so I could make hot rods out of them. At least my wife is a gear-head so I don’t have to beg quite as much.
The pencil renderings I do now are a culmination of techniques I've devloped as an architectural illustrator and as an artist. I always try to achieve a realism, a believablility as in the 1922 Harley I recently completed. I think I could take that bike apart and put it back together in the dark. I try to take as many photo's of the subject as possible that way I can get the details right..."

Check out Ed Tillrock's website HERE.

Thanks for your time Ed! Keep up the great work!
