Corporate Holiday Card: Executives and Slot Cars

For the last five or so years I have illustrated fun holiday greeting cards for the crowd at Safe-Guard Products, an international company specializing in vehicle insurance. I am usually asked to draw the eight company directors in some holiday activity, and this year brought the surprising request that they be racing slot cars, a hobby that many of them enjoy.  I have photos of all of them from previous years, so I started with a rough pencil sketch –

They asked for a few changes, and gave me very specific car models to match to their drivers – I had to google them all because I’m not really a sportscar buff! I tightened up the sketch –

and painted it in for the finish.

    • Hi Debbie – I draw the outline with prisma pencil, then paint it in with acrylic paints thinned with water, so they are like watercolor washes. Thank you, and Happy New Year to you too!
