About

I am a Professor of automotive and Industrial Design at Humber College in Toronto Canada. When not in the classroom, I sketch, paint or build models of cars and bikes.  In the past I have worked as an Automotive Designer (at Ford Europe in Köln, Germany), as a freelance industrial designer and as an art director and production artist for companies such as Bates Canada and Grey Canada. I have been teaching design full time since 2007, but like to “keep my hand in” with paintings, sketches and various projects. My focus tends to be automotive and particularly F1/motorsport related subjects.  The intent of this blog is to force myself to sketch with greater regularity – something that my schedule tends to mitigate against. To that end, I aim to blog a sketch a day – subjects at my whim, with excuses for holidays and force majeure.  🙂

You can view my paintings and artwork at www.thomsonstudio.com.

Find me on Behance at behance.net/thomsonstudio where, aside from my paintings, I also share some of my design models and detail the model-making process.

    • Hi Stefan – Thanks for taking a look at the blog… was very jealous to see you got the chance to hang around New Forest Classic and sketch E Types! Lovely sketches too… especially loved the sketch/painting of the 4.2 litre engine.

      Keep up the good work! Look forward to seeing more – cheers – Bruce
