John Deere/NASCAR Portfolio

While at Mobil Oil in the mid ninties, I saw an opportunity to create artwork that could be used for marketing the Mobil 1/Penske NASCAR racing team that was being formed. Although I was the senior illustrator at Mobil at the time, I had difficulties introducing my artwork to their outsourced marketing department, so, when I discovered John Deere was also starting a new team with former Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien, I used my Redskins connection and got in on the ground floor. It was a ‘game changer’, as I did both graphic art and fine art for John Deere, as well as, Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing, Charlotte Motor Speedway and, in the end, Mobil 1 Racing.
