Dean’s Garage has posted an exclusive gallery of artwork by former GM designer Gray Counts, recently scanned for GM’s archives by request of Ed Welburn.


The gallery of 100+ images, courtesy of GM Design Archive and Special Collections, includes studies for Buick, Oldsmobile and Cadillac models, along with sketch renders for the Disney World Epcot Project.

The artworks – which have an illustration quality to them, rather than being just “sketches” – showcase a variety of ‘old school’ mixed media techniques, with a masterful combination of markers, chalks, pastels and pencils.
