Rough Piece

Managed to make it back to my drawing desk in one piece after a lot of travelling. Anyway, here is an older rough concept piece I still like very much. I think it's inspired by one of those cardboard box spaceships my brother and I were building when we were kids...

StarDucks: Pan American Racer

It's a peach! StarDucks' Steampunk Duck appears on/sponsors Lars Kroiss' stunningly beautiful Volvo 122S on this year's La Carrera Panamericana. What you can see above are the approved rough designs. I'll post the finished designs later this month. (BTW: The photo above shows not Kroiss' racer but it is basically the same)
