I stumbled across Lapin’s work a year or so ago, when I saw a blog post about ‘Oldies but Goldies’, an homage to the varied automotive beasts on the streets of europe and beyond. I bought the book, and was hooked. Now on his site there are some new additions; a fantastic selection of historic rally cars from the “best of the alpes”, which starts in Megève (France) and sees the finish line in Lech (Austria). The route crosses through Switzerland, Italy and Germany..
Love his style; fluid, and not afraid of an enhanced perspective, they really capture the character of each car. I don’t know how much post-production goes into these illustrations but he has an incredibly fluid style and a real economy of line, which is something that’s very difficult to do. Salute Lapin!
