License Plate Art


'63 Corvette art for Corvette museum

Custom WorkPeter GeigerComment

The National Corvette museum contacted me in March after seeing this license plate art I created in 2014. The 3D picture shows a 1960 Corvette racing threw the mountains. They wanted to display the piece at their Inspired Tires art competition sponsored by Michelin tires this fall.

Unfortunately, I had to tell them that piece was sold at Ray Evernham's auction, which benefits IGNITE, a community center for young adults with Autism in Charlotte .

Undeterred, my contact asked if I would be interested in creating a new piece to be auctioned off at the conclusion of the Inspired Tires show. She suggested a piece that represents the 1963 Split Window Corvette because it's a a crowd favorite.

After doing my research I decided to go with the rear image of the iconic Corvette. I also wanted to take advantage of the highly reflective quality that license plates have. I knew that when the lights hit the piece, the flash back would illuminate the qualites that make the 63 split window America's favorite. 

Here are a few shots of the creation of the piece as it progressed in my studio. The first few have the lights on and the next sequence has the lights off to show those reflective qualities.

If you are interested in bidding on the piece, or would like a print please send me an email or give me a call at 516-376-6499.

Good things come to those who wait

I have a client who ordered a license plate guitar featuring the Beatles and Abbey Road last year. When most clients order a custom gift for a birthday or special occasion they say they can wait. But once they get the artwork they have a hard time keeping the secret. 

I always like to check back with my clients to make sure they are happy and to see how the artwork was received. I would email Sonya from time to time to see if she was able to hold out. She finally gave it to him last night, and proudly shared this photo.

To my surprise she did and in the process I made a new friend. We would share funny stories about what was going on here and there and life in general.

I never knew that being an artist would create a pathway to all these great people and stories. I feel very blessed to have the best clients in the world.

So remember: good things do come to those who wait.
