FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How are these images created?


Each image is created using Adobe Illustrator, a vector based illustration program.




What is the image printed on?


We use archival satin finish photo paper in a roll format. Each image is printed on an Epson 8000 SureColor printer using 8 color printing. The image is hand trimmed using standard photographers equiptment.




Can I get a custom image of my car done for me?


Yes! You can! We would need a high resolution .jpg file of the car emailed to us. Please have the image taken after washed, waxed and detailed. If able, have a professional photographer take the image. If not, make sure that you are not standing too far away. Have the car on a concrete surface with no clutter around the car to show in reflections. Make sure the whole car is in the frame and try to keep the camera about 2 to 3 feet off the ground for more dramatic images. You will be contacted after we receive the image via e-mail. Most reproductions take a week or more to complete and the price is determained by the amount of work going into the illustration. Typically it takes 10-12 hours per job at a rate of $50 per hour.




Do you sell your images at car shows?


Currently we have been hitting local car shows in the Sarasota-Manatee County areas. We have a table at the SRQ Caffeine & Gasoline shows every last Saturday of the month.




Where else online can I find you?


I post these images to my Dribbble page https://dribbble.com/classiccarartist I post to my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/james.knake I post to my Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/jimsgraphics/




Do you do other illustrations besides cars?


Yes as a matter of fact, I do. I don't have examples of them on this site as it is dedicated to classic cars, but if you visit my other site, www.sarasotagraphicdesigns.com, you can find examples under the "my work" section.
