Motoric Help

Here's another piece (dates from 1923) of Austrian artist Jos Danilowatz, right out of his brilliant book "Motor in der Karikatur". The influence on my work is obvious, no?
The Text below the image says btw something like: "Women's new technique, to throw off-balance even the most steadfast sportsman."

Here are two designs of mine, created about a year ago or so, which were quite inspired by Danilowatz' "motor pics"... and from StarWars :)

To me, another indeed very, very paramount source of inspiration is this very blog and its photos: Shorpy
