Ford Capri Sketchin’
Posted 5 months ago and submitted by Carmen Johnson | Share link: http://illo.cc/70017




I had lots of fun working on this personal project recently. My brother-in-law is a Ford Capri fan (he is currently in the process of restoring one) so my sister thought it would be nice to create a unique gift for him for Father’s Day.
It was great to draw something a bit different, and also something with a more masculine edge. I sourced a few images and really got into the retro seventies styling and all the different bold colours of that era.
The process was the same as usual. Since the illustration was to be printed onto a mug, it took a little time jigging around the different illustrative elements to create a strong design. I wasn’t entirely sure if the design i’d created would work on the wrap-around as I wouldn’t see the product until it was finished, but I was really pleased with the result.
And most importantly my brother-in-law was very happy with his gift. Now he just needs to work on getting that motor on the road. Perhaps being fuelled by several good cups of tea will help!
