the folks at petersen automotive museum hired me earlier this year to create the poster/branding for their new exhibit "aerodynamics: from art to science".

the poster features some of the landmark cars in the evolution of automotive aerodynamics; a 1996 GM EV1 (top), a 1938 Delahaye Type 135M Competition Roadster (middle), and a 1955 Ghia Gilda (bottom).

the illustration will be used on posters, brochures, web graphics, and a 30-foot tall banner on the outside of the museum. if you happen to be on wilshire blvd. in LA, check it out.

the show runs from june 2012 to may 2013.

Did you use blend tool for the lines? I can never get that to work.

Very nice poster. Love the name of that Ghia. I guess "Ghia Rita Hayworth" was to long?

May I ask how you create such tedious looking line work, in what I assume is Illustrator?

i draw the first and last lines in each design element and let the program interpolate the intermediate steps.

That sounds a little bit beyond of what I've taught myself in Illustrator.
