Scotch & Cream collaboration with artist Santino Lascano

Posted on February 04, 2016 by Robin Soltis

If you haven’t already noticed the flurry of car illustrations peppering our social media posts, we want to formally introduce you to our friend’s beautiful work.

Our longtime friend, Santino Lascano generously agreed to our request of creating a series of vintage-inspired classic cars, and his take was to choose all convertibles. When I met him back in 2001 he was driving his own convertible so it was no surprise to me at all :)

Santino is a talented illustrator who has worked many years in animation. His work includes several years at Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, How To Train Your Dragon on Netflix, and now he is back at CN working on the Powerpuff Girls reboot (which we're so excited to see). We feel very fortunate that he agreed to illustrate these works just for us!

The set is a gorgeous take on vintage classic cars. Scroll down to see the whole series for yourself. Each illustration was inspired by a classic of his choice and is now being offered as an art print, a blank notecard, and will likely be expanded to more products in the future.
