David Townsend is an automotive artist who owns Sports Car Art in southern Vermont. If you count the Rat Fink and other Ed Roth doodles that David used as inspiration as a grade schooler in SoCal, he’s been drawing cars for well over a half century. While a career in advertising and design eventually led him down a different creative path, he returned to illustrating full-time after he “retired” to reconnect with his fine art beginnings. David’s work has been featured on everything from catalog covers, and full-scale laser etchings, to books—including some 300 or so illustrations featured in a soon-to-be-published tome aimed at new or first-time collectors.
