Vector hot rods and “foxy broads”

38 year old Crying Bear has a passion for plus size ladies and American muscle cars. Both are detailed and appealing to the eye. Crying Bear has kept his lines clean and his colors bold. Here are a few description in the artist’s own words:

I finally got around to finishing this piece. I started working on this as a lunch time project but I decided to take it home and finish it off. This is a start of a new series of pictures that I will be illustrating of Hot Rods and Girls. This was done in Coral Draw 10, hope you like it. Not sure what year the car is, maybe you could tell me. Found it in a magazine.

Yet another lunch time project. I get a half an hour lunch and I spend my lunch doing this piece for four months. This piece was quite a challenge to do for a rat-rod car is a rusted out hot-rod. Therefore every piece of this car has some form of rust on it. This turned out to be problem for the computer to handle. I managed to get it to work with some difficulty. As usual I added about 50 pounds to the girl in the front and developed a new style of doing hair as vector, which has a pretty nice effect, if I do say so myself.

HOT RODS BY STITH – High octane vector art

There’s nothing quite like a classic American Hot Rod, and this group of talented illustrators bleed motor oil when it comes to bringing these machines to life. We were blown away by the clean lines and crisp colors that make up this great body of work. These machines always look good. I guess good design stands the test of time.

If you’ve been around the hot rodding industry you know who we are. We’re a bunch of guys with a passion for cars. We’re not your typical business, we’re a family owned business that been around since 1978. We’re hot rod enthusiasts that thrive in creating designs that let you reminisce about the good old days, about the cars that we couldn’t afford, about an era when backyard mechanics discovered how much fun it was to customize a Model T Ford. We’re about creating designs where car bodies are “chopped”, “lowered”, “sloped”, and “raked”.

Take a moment to look around their site. They offer great apparel and a few extras for any auto lover. Support the artists and keep this style “rolling”.
