wired: "cockpits" by strongstuff wired: "cockpits" by strongstuff
i was recently asked to contribute a full page illustration to the july 2010 issue of wired magazine. the illustration opens a photo portfolio detailing the cockpits of some amazing vehicles ranging from a lockheed SR-71 blackbird to a personal submarine to monster truck "grave digger."

the issue is out on stands now. check out page 114 for the main illustration and pages 115-123 for the tiny icons that i also designed.

i have to say, it is such a charge to go into a bookstore, pick up the mag, page through it and see my work. a true dream come true.

2010 WIRED magazine

p.s. Any chance of you making a "Predators" poster type illo soon. I just saw the movie, which was Excellent, and would get a kick out of seeing what you would come up with.

That's amazing man. You totally deserve it. Your design sense and detail are exactly the reasons you fit so well into those type of magazines and magazines. There's an almost timeless quality to your work, not only going forward, but, has hints of the past. I could visualize seeing this type of work being around in the fifties, it's just really strong.

Hence your name, I guess, huh? LOL. Just keep knocking em out, buddy. And congrats.
