A pun-based piece that plays around with the idea of a muscle car.

In this print, I’ve drawn a classic 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda muscle car, and superimposed a human muscle anatomy to its paint scheme. As always, I’ve tried a few new things with this piece and for the most part, I am content with its final form. One new thing for this print, was using a super transparent black ink to suggest at some of the car’s volume and shading. Although I feel it is successful in certain areas of the print, I was hesitant to utilize this ink to the overall design, as I was unsure about how it would react to the subsequent ink layers. I plan to further explore the potentials and limitations of this added color layer with future prints.

This portfolio features various stages of this project’s development. Listed below are some supplementary details.
  • Final printed version of the image. 8-Color Silkscreen Print. I wished for this print to be the fusion of the following vector layers. It was mildly successful.
  • Vector version of image without car’s shading and highlights
  • Vector version of car without the muscle anatomy paint scheme
  • Rendered muscles for vehicle’s side panels
  • Rendered muscles for vehicle’s hood
  • Anatomy sketch
