Well, we do what I call cartoon car drawings. It’s something we do when a kid asks us to draw them a car. And there have been a lot of drawings done over the years. I don’t recall any specific car designs; and I don’t think anyone ever got the right car design. We actually have three car models– a Mini Cooper, a Mini L’Oreal and a Mini Countryman. Our Mini Countryman, the one with the big chrome wheels, and then our one that sits a little lower, the one you could probably sit in the back seat. That was our favorite car until we decided to make an all-new model, and then that one started coming around. We’ll never be able to recreate the original designs at that scale; but just drawing them on paper seems to create a new feeling for kids. I always say to them that, if we could put one of our favorite cartoons in our cars– a cartoon about a tiny person that’s racing to the top in big wheels– we’d be all over that.
What’s behind you?
It has a lot to do with what I like, so I’m drawn to cars that I see. And then it has to do with my childhood. I wanted to be a car designer, but I hated it. My parents would go out of their way to help me, and I would just sit there and cry, because the whole time I was doing it– I would be in the car making drawings, and my mom would always be telling me, “Get yourself a job.” And I’d be like, wait, you’re getting me a job because I can’t do this. She never understood the whole process that I had to go through. Then I went to college, and I ended up taking art classes at the Art Institute of Chicago with some of my friend’s friends. They were really into cars, and I wanted to be able to do it so I could buy one. I finally got the idea to get a job as a designer– you know, I would do it for free, but I would get paid. I got a job on the Ford factory line at the plant, which is where the Ford Crown Victoria and the Pontiac Aztek and the Buick Regal are built. So I ended up designing all the Cadillac XT1, XT2, XTS and XTS-L, and it was kind of a dream job.
But all you can do is draw.
