Alfa Romeo Spider

I did this illo as a test for Swiss weekly Die Weltwoche. They have a weekly car column, which they wanted me to illustrate. Quite a tall order, but the promised pay sounded pretty good, and the gig was basically a free assignment. Anyway, the art director asked me to do one test-illustration, which turned out quite nicely, I don't mind saying.
Today, however, the editorial staff decided to use photography from now on because of budgetary reasons. I was a bit depressed... maybe I can use this illo for some other purpose...
