NORTON COMMANDO 850

Marc Holstein

 

Oh what a joy to finish this piece! We are all in a very strange time in the world and I miss the feeling of freedom to be out on my motorcycle whilst in lockdown. So when I spotted a photograph taken by @marc.holstein of @myeyesbychristine I just had to illustrate it.

Thank you Marc for letting me do this! It’s been the perfect distraction. What do you do to keep your mind focused and positive?

This one will surely be high on my list of favourites!

THE PROCESS

My main process is simple. I use a photograph as a base – much like the old school painters used projection to “trace” their work onto different areas in larger scale.

In modern times we moved to light tables and today we can use tools like the iPad Pro to digitally draw from a digital light table so to speak. You can view my process for this specific motorcycle in the video.

I am lucky to call Mark from Johnston Moto a friend. This beautifully crafted custom Caferacer by @johnston_moto has all the feels…

This bike was also featured on @bikeexif in an article by local mothusiast @wesrides and images by another local mototographer @devin_paisley
