Website Banner Commission


I did this work for Martin Lindeskog, an entertaining blogger out of Gothenburg, Sweden. He enjoys discussing and promoting American ideals and his line of tea beverages over at americanized.org.

Thanks again for your great work with the Americanized banner! The image is really embodying the American sense-of-life.

For more information on Americanized.org, please go to my blog on Posthaven.com.

All the Best,



Love it!


Beautiful concept & artwork. What's the car? It looks like a '57 Caddy, but I've never seen the two-tone done that way (I like to look at classic cars, but I'm not absorbed in them). The "roadscape" is quite Hopperesque (well--it all has that kind of vibe).

John Cox:

Hey T

Thanks for the good word. Martin was adamant about getting it to be quintesentially American. Interesting little balancing act. I wanted to get across open spaces plus a reference to an eclectic past.

The highlights and shadows on the '57 El Dorado make it look two-tone Not

Dr. Bob:

Very nice work, John.

John Cox:

Hey Dr. Bob

Thank you, sir. I know Martin is very pleased with it. His concept really spoke to me.

T again:


Sorry. I was thrown by the darker line at the edge of the reflection on the tail-fin--but the top is white, right?

John Cox:

Hey T

You are correct. sir.
