Having a blog brings many benefits. In addition to learning new things when doing research for a post, you stumble on completely unrelated information, events, vehicles, and in this case, talent.
If you surf the web as much as I do, it becomes increasingly difficult to find fresh content, but it does happen as in the case with the very impressive FirstCar.
What is Firstcar Illustrations about?
At Firstcar Illustrations Mark creates personalized illustrations of cars. You supply him with key information about your chosen vehicle and then he combine this information with his own research into the history of the car, make and model creating a customised illustration using computer programs.
If you can give him the original registration number there is also a realistic panel on the final artwork to represent it, however if not the production year of the car can be placed in the panel instead. The final image is then framed and presented in a gift box.
Why would this interest you?
Firstcar Illustration offers an original and gift idea for the person who has everything be it for one of those big birthdays, a Christmas present or for someone in work who is retiring. The illustration is tailored to the exact specifications provided, allowing you as the gift giver to have an input into how the final gift looks.
Needless to say it is also for anyone else who would simply like it for themselves, be they a classic car enthusiast or a car fanatic!
Cars often play a big part in our memories of times gone by. They are an integral part of the social history of the 20th century and we often form a personal attachment to them, after all they are the biggest piece of industrial design most of us will ever own! For lots of us they mark a point where we gain both the independence to go where we want, when we want and also the start of our adult lives.
Family photographs often feature those old cars we remember and the memories of those cars often mark out times and situations we look back on. A Firstcar Illustrations artwork gives you the perfect opportunity to honour that long lost friend with a little piece of nostalgia.
What does the illustration look like?
The final illustration integrates the overall feel of a photograph with the refinement of a drawing. The image including the original registration plate are mounted on stained marine plywood presented in a black frame and then placed in a high quality presentation box.
Alternatively you can purchase an unframed illustration that can be hung directly on the wall as the image comes fully sealed and with a protective coating.
What is so special about Firstcar Illustrations?
The illustration is customised to the details you supply and there really are not that many other gifts out there that add that extra thoughtful dimension through your personal contribution. Men in particular can be incredibly difficult to buy gifts for and Firstcar Illustrations offers an answer to the age old conundrum of what to buy the man who has everything.
Of course as this gift is personalized, FirstCar will need some information and the more detail you can give them the more accurate the artwork they can produce for you.
I was so impressed with the quality of the work that I am having one made of my M. Can't wait to get it!
