Well said, Wol!

I should have been more circumspect - two posts starting with "Well said!" Whatever next?

Ah, the Theo Page DFV! I noticed it on the wall in one of the photos of the interior of CGA - a place I would have liked to visit - taken by you or Giraffe, Art. The reversed, white-on-black versions work quite well, some better than others. It is a bit annoying when a publisher/agent does it without asking, however, especially as all the shading is wrong, i.e., shadows become highlites. Did I say a bit annoying? Anyway, worse things can happen, I don't know if it happens in the art world, but there seems to be the feeling that illustrators never need to be consulted over major alterations to their work, often detrimental. The favourite change is rotating the artwork so the verticals (and hence all the other -als) are wrong. It may be apparent, as I keep re-orientating other posters contributions, that I am very sensitive to this!

Sorry about the nose art, Tom, and that it was done behind your back. No point in speculating, but I understand your feelings about the way it was done.


Thanks for the background Tony :up:

You are right Marc, the open version is deffinitely not by BB, the style and technique is completely different - in fact I would say it has been done in coloured pencil rather than BB's paint,

Quite a list of work there. Sixty of them is quite a collection to have, but it would be presumptuous to think that you would put them all up here ... of course, wishing and appreciating does come into the picture.
Thanks for the information.

Found a few Eagle cutaways,which must have their rightful place here.They are not very large, but they will have to do.
Also a listing of all the artists who drew for Eagle. We have discussed previously whether or not Roy Cross drew for the
magazine.
According to this listing I found on the web, he did.
In all, around two dozen artists contributed to the feature, the most notable after Leslie Ashwell Wood being: J. Walkden Fisher,
John Batchelor, Geoffrey Wheeler, Laurence Dunn, Hubert Redmill and Roy Cross

Here is a larger one by Laurence Dunn... HMS Worcester (originally HMS Exmouth, launched 1905)

I'm glad you posted that. :up: It is something that interests me greatly. See below.

The article that you link to, also in a certain, 'non-cutaway' sense, reminds me of the work undertaken by Paul Nash, particularly 'dead sea'.

Nice, bQ, thanks. Odd that it seems like two different illustrators, I reckon the engine is a Betti, but I feel sure the car is not, it is a different style, and I like it!

Time to give back. I've enjoyed this forum and have freely taken to add to my files on cars of interest to me. Over the years I've saved cutaways from various English-language magazines, but this forum has introduced me to the work of many fine Italian, French, and Brazilian artists to which I did not have access. While many of my collected cutaways have already been posted here, in reviewing Ibsen's most-useful index, I noticed that there may be a few new images I can contribute. Unfortunately, I noticed that after I scanned individual pages and attempted to rejoin them, there are sometimes noticeable sections missing despite my careful excising when saving the pages. My reasoning is that it is better to have these incomplete images posted than not. Perhaps, someone else will see them and post a better scan, if it exists.

This first image has been posted several pages ago, but I think this is a higher-definition scan. It was scanned directly from the Lear Motors brochure, which, like Tom West, I obtained at the 1969 Los Angeles Auto Show and has William A. Moore's name.

Well, the truth is, I'll be away for about a week. I actually had a bit more to share, but I thought that really would be over the top.
