Pixels on the Track...

This is a fun project I did last month for an IBM publication. It was a cover and inside illustration with a transportation/travel theme - which I always like. The story had to do with servers, 'storage engines' and open source applications, with names like SugarCRM and Joomla. I tried to style the train to be a cross between a freight train and a more streamlined passenger train. The inside piece featured the train pulling boxcars featuring made-up product logos that symbolizing the different open source applications.
Some of the other train images I've done include a poster for Air France and a logo for Jim Jarmusch's Mystery Train, which if you watch the movie to the very end you can briefly see after the credits roll. : )
