Charming Illustrations of Vehicles by The Rusted Pixel

I have recently discovered The Rusted Pixel, an amazing illustrator whose latest series of illustrations named On the Run has become a hit on Behance. The series features a compilation of charming – I would also say cute, though I’m sort of over-using that word –  illustrations of vehicles inspired by illustrated books for children. Really, aren’t they cute? On top of that, according to the artist, the illustrations are just the first part of a project. The next step is Kickstarter. Intriguing, right?

Ok, let’s give the author a word: “This is a personal project of mine that I have been working on over the past 18 months dipping in and out when I find spare time or the patience to sit for 35 hours to UV map and texture paint two models! 

This is strongly influenced by Studio AKA’s “Lost and Found” written by Oliver Jeffers. I’m a huge fan of children’s illustrated books and I wanted to try get an illustrated, toon style feeling with this project. Other influences include Star Wars: Clone Wars, Borderlands 2, Road Runner, Wacky Races, Sunset Overdrive and Laika Studio’s work.
I have to extend a huge thank you to so many of the friends for supporting me when I just did not see this as a good project worth completing. You guys have got me to this stage and I’m delighted that I have of you on board to help with the next stage! Next step….Kickstarter!”
