My other half might disagree .... although it might give her a chance to see family in the area.

Grant Thomas

Grant merges his twenty-year expertise of photography, excellent
technical drawing skills and his mastery of various art mediums to
bring the passionate emotions that these exotic machines exude, to the
surface of every sketch, illustration and painting.

After graduating Sheridan College's renown Illustration course second
in his class in 1989, Grant went on to have a two-decade long career in
advertising where his photography, digital illustration and graphic
design skills were used in hundreds of print and web advertisements
throughout Ontario and across Canada. During this, Grant nurtured his
Automotive Art, keeping his traditional drawing and painting skills
intact. He is now pursuing his Art full time.

His award-winning photography - Art in of itself - is usually only the
beginning. Grant uses this as an invaluable source of reference to
create his artwork. The final product can be a drawing using graphite
or conte, a painting using watercolour, ink, oils or acrylic paint, or
a completely digital rendering using a Macintosh computer.

Grant is a member of the international group Club Auto Artistes and an
invited member of the Transportation Artists and Authors Guild. His
work has garnered him numerous awards from juried shows and exhibitions
including the Automotive Journalists Associtiaon of Canada's "Art of
the Automobile".

Email for information regarding available originals or to arrange a
commission at [email protected].
