Thank you to our friends at Raydar magazine for reminding us what a fine artist Tom Fritz is.
Born and raised in San Fernando, California, Tom Fritz’s work is inspired by his childhood memories of the 1960s and ’70 car culture of that area.
After working as an illustrator and designer for 20 years, Tom now works out of his own studio in Ventura County. He has won countless awards for his work, and, in 2001, he was commissioned by Harley-Davidson to paint an image commemorating its 100th Anniversary. Since then, he’s been licensed by the Motor Company to pursue his continuing investigation into its colourful and multi-faceted history. In early 2014, he produced the official movie poster for the movie "On Any Sunday—The Next Chapter", and later that year his artwork appeared as the cover of Hot Rod magazine, carrying the distinction as being one of the very few times artwork has appeared on the cover in the publication's 66-year history. He has also designed a set of stamps for the US Postal Service depicting ‘Muscle Cars Forever’. You can see more of his work at Tom Fritz.
