I’ve been dying to get some new artwork on my car for quite a while now but just haven’t had the time to work on it. I wanted to start off with something easy and inexpensive like a hood wrap so I began laying out my design on Illustrator.
The most difficult part was trying to clean up the old wrap I had without destroying my car. This was the biggest task that I had to deal with since I’ve had stickers on my car for over a decade and the adhesive just melded with my car.
Custom Art Hood Wrap
Once i had the hood to my liking I laid out the design and began wrapping it. I was really happy with the outcome and I get a lot of people looking at me weird which I’ve grown to enjoy.
When designing it I took a lot inspiration from H.R. Giger and mixed it in with some of my own illustration style. For some reason I’ve been really into tentacles lately so I’ve been drawing a lot of them. The Eye in the center is a drawing I did a long time ago for PoisonApple.com that worked its way into some other patterns I was sketching. I felt like the hood needed a centerpiece to tie it in together. I also thought it would be cool to have some tentacles look like they creeping out under the lights. Maybe it was a little too Stranger Things-y but I like it 🙂 Ohh, and it kind of reminded me of Hermaeus Mora from the Skyrim quest that I had just completed.
You’ll be able to see another weird drawing of a Dungeons and Dragons Beholder I turned into a shirt in a later blog.
