Very nice piece. At first i thought it was a photograph. Try to set your lens on 50 when shooting your reference shots. This will keep ...

The composition is a bit high for my taste. Perhaps you did not want all of the eyebrows in, but i think i would have gone for it. That...

Daniel G. Storm
United States
My name is Daniel Storm, and I am a starving car artist living in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

In the late eighty’s and early ninety’s, I was an illustrator working on projects for GM and Ford. I ran the illustration program at the GM plant in Wentzville, Missouri, my second year there. After a few years of marketing for McDonald’s, I went back to Ford as a regular employee at their St. Louis Assembly Plant in Hazelwood, Missouri.

When the plant closed in 2006, I took an “Educational Buyout” from Ford. I went back to school and obtained an Associates Degree in Illustration. I am now creating a body of work so I can have my own web site.

On my gallery here I have elected to post all of my school work, including my process work, followed by my car sketches, finished drawings and paintings.

In the spring of 2011 i was hired by Trader Joe's as a sign artist. I cannot say enough about Trader Joe’s. It is a wonderful place to work! My wife, Nancy, and i have been fans of Trader Joe’s for years, and i like them all the more now that i work for them. I can honestly say that i look forward to going into work every shift. It’s a high energy place full of friendly people of all kinds, and i really feel good about the products that they sell there. I am very lucky to work for them.

Current Residence: St. Louis, Missouri, United States
Favourite genre of music: Just about everything
Operating System: I Mac OS X
Favourite cartoon character: Felix The Cat
Personal Quote: Everyone complains about the weather, but no one ever does anything about it. M.Twain
    Been gone for awhile. I have had some joint and back problems, but have been able to gain ground lately. Found this book, You Are The Placebo by Doctor Joe Dispenza. I am now meditating on my health problems an hour every morning, and  it is helping me a lot!
    Also...i got canned from my artist position at the Trader Joe’s where i work at. I am on the floor now, but it is only thirty hours a week and i am handling it better and better each week.
    I have done very well at Trader Joe’s. It is a great place to work with some of the best people i have ever worked with. It’s a high energy place, and i feel good clocking in to work there. I have a rather strong personality, and sometimes i have to be careful not to run people over, but the customers love me and i love them back. There are a number of them that will seek out my line when i am on a register shift. I love it!
    I will forever draw cars, but i want to branch out into portraits and other subject matter. I have been combining some photography with quotes from a book called A Course In Miracles, and have decided to post them here.
    A Course In Miracles is a spiritual based teaching device consisting of three books. A Text, A Workbook For Students and a Manuel For Teachers. I have been studying this book for a number of years now, and it has greatly improved my life. It emphasizes application of spiritual fundamentals, rather than just theory. The Course in no way promises finality in spiritual learning and in no way pretends to be the only spiritual path. Indeed, it makes a point of saying that it is only one of many paths. For quite a few years now, it has been my path. Many people say that it is a Buddhist like path put in Christian vernacular, and i agree with this idea.
    For now i will be posting these sayings from A Course In Miracles while trying to get back to some drawing again. I would like to also do some surrealistic spiritual based paintings based on my experiences.
I am a member of these fine clubs and groups... :iconbutterflys-forever: :iconthepencilclub: :iconautomotiveindesign: :iconpencil-box: :icondrawingcars: :iconreal-art-united: :iconclassiccarfans: :iconcarsdrawers: :iconmuscle-car-mania: :icondraw-my-photo: :icongraphite-gods: :iconcoolcarsonly: :iconjust-the-details: :iconautomotophotography: :icondibujantes-de-autos: :iconsideways-racing-club: :iconseriousartists: :iconshikharsportal: :iconozarks-artists: :icontraditional-painting: :iconthe-drawings-club: :iconthecarwallpapers: :icondrawing-zone: :icondrawing-artists: :iconcool-automotive-art: :iconcars-catalog: :iconauto-be-crazy: :iconmindoflead: :iconcarsdrawings: :iconamericancarsdev-art: :iconrealism-art: :icongraphiteandcharcoal:and :icontraditional-artlove:
