Today, I released the fourth Lowly Gentlemen print in an ongoing series of artwork meant to introduce automotive passion to the world of interior decorating. This particular composition is one that has been sitting at the back of my mind for some time now. I have always wanted to mesh my background in oil painting with the more refined blueprint style that I’ve developed in my automotive work.
It seems rare that a Daily Grind update offers a chance to share so much, but a lot has happened at the StanceWorks HQ since our last report. From new parts and new art, to new cars, both big and small, we’ve been having fun this summer.
Easily the most exciting update is the announcement of the latest Lowly Gentlemen art print. Hand drawn by Andrew once again, the latest limited-number print features a draft drawing of Mercedes’ famous Sauber C9 prototype race car.
Today marks the halfway point between Spring and Summer: the weather is at its best, and it’s just a few weeks more until the Summer heat takes over. The big season-openers are beginning, with Worthersee bringing out Europe’s top winter builds, and SoWo set to do the same for the States. The winter’s lull has given way to summer’s momentum, and here in Southern California, we’re excited to launch the new Lowly Gentlemen apparel for 2015.
Event posters are where art and automobiles have come together for decades, so when I began discussing potential collaboration projects with Formula Drift, my mind instantly jumped to the prints that so often proceeded races. Despite the style that runs rampant through the drifting culture, it’s rare to find art that echoes the dynamic atmosphere of the events.
Running from today until Monday, Dec. 1st at Midnight (EST), The Lowly Gentlemen will be offering great discounts on all of the goods in the store. Whether you’re trying to snatch one of the latest StanceWorks Tees or you think the Centerlock Wheel Art Print would be the perfect gift for the wheel enthusiasts in your life, prices have all been cut up to 33% off.
