Cool car. The LC500.  Note the tag-line reflection in the hood, sign shown in full image below.


Here are most of the images used to create the finished art (finished art in center).


I did all design work on this piece, as well as illustration.  All imagery was airbrush illustrated.

All design work on this piece by Dan Johnson Art.  All lighting effects, sky, car reflection, background and foreground, were rendered in Photoshop.  Look easy?  It was!


A simple product illustration rendered completely in Photoshop.


The car was photographed locally and just dropped into the background.  Note the car reflection.  Also note car placement, sizing, and composition overall.  It looks like the car pic angle was shot to match the background angle!!  Car color was tinted just a bit to reflect time of day.

Cool car pic.  A bunch of color editing on this one, trying to avoid a clash.  Got a cool car?  I will drop it in a cool background for ya, for $139.  And...I will deliver hard copy for a slight premium!!  $25 for an excellent print, (varies with size).  Email me and I will send tips on photographing your car!

A complicated piece intended to show the phone system being featured.  All of the imagery; the boards, the chips, and shadows, was created in Photoshop.  Everything else; type, charts, graphs, lines, was placed in Illustrator.  The idea was to give the technical schematic a bit of visual appeal.

Another cool car pic.  A 56er I believe, in Central Park.  The background was purchased online, the car was photographed locally.  Images and design created by Dan Johnson Art.  Note image reflection in front bumper.

CARPIX.COOL is no longer published.


The problem with this image is obviously the background color which is white, what the client wanted, shown here on the right.  The original background (left) was dropped out in the first round of retouch.  I took it a step further to a much better solution, black, or dark grey as shown below.


Just 3 head shots for now but I have a bunch more.  Just let me know if you want to see 'em.
