Track Day Instructor

Here is a good example of just how things are done at the Streets of Willow race track in Willow Springs Rosamond. This is my instructor in my same car (wrx STI) from last year September doing a few laps Counter Clockwise. You can see on lap 2 how much more confident he enters the bowl at the top of the hill, when he closes in on the lotus and miata. You're supposed to approach this at over 100 and the fact that left hand hairpin is banked keeps you from flying off into orbit. Though I did the fastest times in the novice group until I get the courage to approach the bowl that committed, I'll never see a faster lap.
This is how things looked in my car but with more tire squeal, Panic, and sweaty palms. Will bring gloves and bigger balls next time!

found this ???


Just found this while digging for some blank paper. Not sure what I was thinking or drawing that day?

can I borrow your diff !

Rally driver Ari Vatanen from 1976 breaks his rear differential gear on a rough stage in Scotland, his mechanic asks a passing spectator in a similar car for a spare. A true example of sporting spirit and mechanical abilities on the fly. Where have those days gone? The end is the best part.

Camp Lazlo Days

I use to work on Camp Lazlo as Character and Prop Designer. This show is still on the air loved by many children and retarded adults. Now even though the characters were not a design masterpiece, and I really had to adjust to draw like Joe Murray, the crew turned into something special. Every day was fun, we had an amazing group of artists and talent. Many of same crew moved on to Flap Jack ,the show I 'm on today, and the fun continues. So I'll post a few designs never seen here and there from time time.
