Check out the samples of Jason White’s outstanding work.  Pure hotness!!  What I love about Jason’s work is his versatility in style and subject matter.  A true designer that is not just focussed on automotive but several other areas of design inclusive of product and furniture.   Upon speaking with Jason, it couldn’t be more evident that he has a solid understanding of design and a passion that is undeniable.    A learned individual, with a thorough understanding of design history and their influences in our modern world, Jason stresses on the importance for students to work hard and have a true passion in their area of expertise.   Upon looking at his work below, you cannot help but to get charged up and excited about the world of design in general!  Just goes to show what drive, determination, discipline, and of course drawing…will get you! Keep on a lookout for Jason’s hot canson rendering tutorial coming soon!

A couple of canson illustrations above.  The color of the canson is primarily used as the base color of the car. One needs to only add the darker tones and highlights to pop the images out of the page.  Excellent examples!
