A few months back I came across this great quote by Henry Ford.
“If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.”
– Henry Ford
I love how this quote expresses Ford’s passion and determination in making his vehicles. His goal was to change the face of the world, do develop a mode of transportation that was unheard of and he wouldn’t let anyone pursued him otherwise.
First we began with some sketches.
I started coming up with different car grills not knowing exactly which one I’d end up illustrating.
Second I researched Ford cars.
In illustrating this quote I took a look back at a ton of Ford models throughout the ages and finally landed on his infamous 1929 Ford model T.
Third I started illustrating the idea.
I started out with the idea to detail out pieces of the Model T car, but ultimately ended up minimizing it to keep the piece more direct and less cluttered as you can see in the time lapse video below.
