To further integrate the new and old shapes I have going on with this ArtCar, I’m using trim from a 1950s Chevy that’s nice and curvy. This helps move the eye along from the front grill to the rest of the body – back and up – without interfering with the headlights. Slowly but surely the piece is moving from a montage of parts into a more cohesive whole.
