Jim Gerdom

I’ve been a car nut since I was 3. After spending my elementary and high school years drawing cars in class, I went to the Art Center College of Design to study Automotive Design. After Art Center, I established my own Industrial Design office, designing products for manufacturers, many of them in the automotive aftermarket.

My automotive artwork is in the same marker and pastel technique that I use in my design practice. My work has been featured in several magazines, including Autoweek, Hot Rod, and Mustang Monthly; and I created the artwork for the official 35th Anniversary Mustang Poster for Ford.

I also have a series of limited edition prints of Mustangs, Shelbys anf other Ford subjects.
