I'm after an illustration/caricature/cartoon of an Austin Healey 100 speeding down the Longford Flying Mile in 1954. If you know what a Big Healey is and have heard of the Longford Grand Prix in Tasmania then you are the illustrator for me. I have an online store selling car magazines - see www.oldcarmags.com and I need an appropriate image that I can use for promotional purposes - so I want to own the image outright. The style I'm looking for is a pucker period look that would suit a business seeking to capture a sense of classic english sports cars being driven in period wear by hairy chested, bounders and cads with more money than sense - in other words a bit tongue in cheek, that captures the movement of the vehicle but more as an illustration than a straight reproduction of the image - in other words use it as your imagination. The sort of imagery I'm keen on are the type of image that is on the British Racing Drivers Club logo as well as Guy Allen's work - if you search up Felix Petrol you'll get the idea. If you put a number plate on it the number should be DZ 3003. Anyhow, attached is the image that I'm keen to see recreated. This logo will need to work across website, twitter, Facebook and printed collateral. If you have any questions, just ask.
