Our first foray into F1 features the unparalleled Ayrton Senna in his Lotus 98T at the 1986 Detroit Grand Prix. We were commissioned to create this specific illustration by Alex Hemingway to honor his father, who passed away in December 2016.
"He was the reason I became so interested in motorsport and all things racing and mechanical. He provided me with my first toys (old F1 cars), taped F1 races so we could watch and re-watch, and attended F1 races when they raced at Indianapolis.
Even though he was a massive motorsport fan, he was also an environmental conversationalist. My parents are both Indiana Master Naturalists and they both volunteered hours with local Indiana land trusts and preservation societies. Before his passing in 2016, the Gene Stratton Porter State Historical Society named a newly restored 99 acre wetland habitat in honor of my parents for their work dedicated to conservation."
20% of the sales from these posters, based on the picture Alex's father took at the Detroit GP in 1986, will be donated to the Gene Stratton Porter State Historic Society to maintain the Hemingway wetlands.
