Our sister site Coroflot hosts portfolios from every variety of artist and designer from student to established professional, and we're always looking to send some love their way.
While Dwayne Vance certainly falls on the latter end of the spectrum—he's the founder of his own design consultancy, FutureElements—his Kickstarter project, "The Hot Rod Art book: Masters of Chicken Scratch Vol 2," his second anthology of hot rod designs marks a very respectable attempt at reaching out to the next generation of designers.
The designs are alternately classic, vintage, retro, modern or futuristic and every permutation of these adjectives. In fact, even non-gearheads can appreciate the illustrations from the well-rounded selection of 15 artists: the visuals are pure eye-candy, from stylized concepts to tautly-rendered full-color pen & marker drawings.
It should come as no surprise, then, that "The Hot Rod Art Book: Masters of Chickenscratch, Vol. 2" has already met its Kickstarter goal of $5,000, the last bit he needed to cover the printing and publishing costs that he was unable to raise independently. The book, which you can see in the video below, also comes with a two-hour instructional DVD. Congrats, Dwayne—we look forward to seeing the final product!
