    Love autos and anything of transportation. I have created the company, T.A.P.S. Ltd. (Trains, Autos, Planes, Ships) I am a retired professor of Art and now spend my time creating art that relates to transportation. My illustrations are more of story telling with influences of great story telling illustrators of the past such as, Norman Rockwell, N. C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, Peter Helck, William Motta, to name a few. Long before the camera and present day Digital media as we know today, story telling was created out of imagination and sparked and fueled by historical fact and myth.
    I hope to post some work here or links to my ucoming websites as well to share with you.

    I am from the old school of hot rodding with inheritance of grease monkey's in both my father and uncles who guided and exposed me to early day hot roddom. The days when as a child I rode in my fathers legendary modified T lakester bucket, loaded with a race prepped 4 banger Ford fully port and relieved wearing an indeed very rare McDowell Over Head Cam head and pushing all that power back to its short track Halibrand quick change. He ran it at Murdock Lakes, El Mirage and all around the farm lands of the Central Valley in the late 40's and early 50's.

    When I was young enough to drive a tractor on the family farm (age 10) I sat behind the wheel of that by then dust covered and very neglected "Hot Rod". Many a time though few and far between my father would pull off the dust cover, oil her up and fire it up. I was fortunate to ride with him on a few occasions and I can still remember picking out the bugs from my teeth, flying down the back roads with the windscreen folded down! Everyone knew that rod, its legend based on humbling pure, open raw speed and mechancial know how. No computer, no injected body or eletronic filled fuselage, just a pure mechancal tuned classic.

    That is what I have aimed to capture again in my illustrations. I am also working to recreate that famous legacy of my fathers. To reproduce that very iconic ride and once more add a nostalgia piece of my youth to my collection. Thanks for visiting please come back now and then! Hope you enjoy!
