Photographs I took at the Studebaker show in July 2011.

If you've seen the Muppet Movie, you'll know why these guys are in the back seat.

I found these amazing concept design sketches by industrial designer Raymond Loewy. Mr Loewy is know for his iconic designs such as the Coca-Cola bottle, the GG1 Locomotive, the Studebaker Avanti, and the Lucky Stripe cigarette package (which hasn’t changed since 1942!) I love the loose hand and perspective of these beautiful sketches.
