I have a book called BRIGHTWORK which explores a lot of classic American car ornamentation. That's the main inspiration for this image.
The challenge at the moment was: "Don't give the guy the front hood of a car." Which, on my first pass, is exactly what I did - only to realize in horror that he sort of looked like a Transformer from the 1950's. SO back to the drawing board I went and this is what I cam'e up with.
Maybe it still looks like a vintage car, but to me it looks more like a vintage refrigerator.
That sort of gave me a good inner chuckle when I thought of it at the convention.
