The project of combining woman (portrait) with car rendering already planned a long time ago. Because I want to make the car as general interest, not only related to man. I want a girl or woman who has the history with her car, can happily show it. But the problem was, finding out who was the woman that I can draw and including her car in one frame. Then the moment is come, got the idea about whom should I draw.
For some people, car ownership is a symbol. Not only for men, but also for women. A car is the symbol of their achievement and status. A car also reflection about what you are. But for some people, a car also part of their life story and in the end, it becomes of their life history. I will share behind the scene of the gift that I present to my best friend, Oki Firman Cahyono, who decide to pursue other interest and resign from the company. It short story that connected people, life, and car.
The other car brand that I love is Lamborghini. This brand is consistent to create superb and spectacular car body design and set the high benchmark to other competitors. And if we follow the history of how this car was built, we will admire the spirit and passion of the founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini. Even though he and his team have no experience to build a sports car, but finally they can write the history with their golden ink. To share my admiration for Mr. Lamborghini passion, I made this artwork. This artwork is quite unique because I combine the paper cutting technique for the portrait with marker & pencil color rendering. From many cars of Lamborghini, I simply choose Lamborghini Miura that designed by Bertone. It has a simple and sexy design.
