Art Fitzpatrick is one of my favorite automotive artists.

He was such a big part of Pontiac's success and their wide-track ad campaign from '59-'71.

Love his artwork, always have. It transports me to a different place, and makes me want to drive a Pontiac to get there.

I have most of his ads in my files- there's one for a '62 wagon and all the chrome is beaded with rain- insane.

In addition to being a fantastic artist, know that Pontiacs really did look this good in the '60s; they made it a bit easier for AF (& VK) :

Man, I'd like to find out the techniques he and other's used for their work. I'm a bit of an amateur auto artist wannabe myself.

Good links, HE.

Was looking at a flawless '62 GP (the below is a Bonne) at a small show yesterday (I know '60s PMDs intimately)- every bit as beautiful as the ads, just a smidge narrower.

And this is the ad I mentioned earlier (sorry: a 4-dr sedan, not a wagon) - you can't make out the rain drops here, but in print it's amazing.
