What do automotive illustrator Hans Liska and customizer Luis Tanahara have in common (besides creating amazing art involving automobiles)?
Both designers are started to be archived here at hobbyDB:
- Hans Liska (1907-83) was an Austrian-born painter whose oeuvre spanned themes from WW II to ads for Mercedes-Benz to flamenco to cities and landscapes. He worked as an illustrator for many national and international companies such as DEGUSSA, Ford, Märklin, Mercedes, Quelle and others. His work is documented here.
- Luis Tanahara has worked for Boyd Coddington Garage, Hot Wheels, Jada and other diecast brands. He is perhaps best known for his sleek Sledster and other heavy duty hot rod truck designs. You can see his work here. You can contribute the museum as well… Have a model of one of our cars we haven’t listed? Score some sweet promotional gear at a car show?
