Ryan Sardachuk
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
Hello there I am Ryan Sardachuk... probably the biggest person who is stuck in time warp, that you'll ever meet. I am a full hearted retro lover, and even a bit of a redneck, and that has influenced me greatly in what i draw, and how i draw it. I draw mostly vintage american cars, from the days when the automakers made beautiful cars for every buyer segment. You know... the days when even the average american could afford to drive a car that could turn heads (The 57 Chevy is a fine example of this). Today ordinary people can only afford the bland lumps that we sadly call quality vehicles. you know... the ones that have no thought put into their design, and have less torque from the engine than they do in the lugnuts, and horsepower outputs similar to that of a sewing machine. What really surprises me about some of these new cars, is that you don't have to mix the oil and the gas like you do with your lawnmower haha. anyway i'm done ranting... this is my drawing style: I draw alot of existing cars, as well as some of my own... i prefer to use art pencils, watercolor paints, and watercolor pencil crayons. and sometimes oil pastels, but those can be a real pain... with that said, that pretty much summarizes my style, and presentation

Current Residence: calgary alberta canada
Favourite genre of music: classic rock and country any day of the week
Favourite Artists: Ralph Goings, Chip Foose, Thomas Kinkade, Ian Guy, Dave Snyder.
Favourite style of art: Car Art, retro, photorealism
Operating System: i can use both.
Personal Quote: I Use Many Quotes... Some are mine some are not, But Heres A Few Good Ones: "If your gun rack has a gun rack, you might be a redneck", "Don't Piss On My Leg And Tell Me It's Raining", "If everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane!", "Don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya", "If rabbits feet are so lucky, what happened to the rabbit?", "If you find a car when you mow your lawn, you might be a redneck"

I've been thinking lately about my artwork. I've enjoyed making this Life Story Of A Chevy Chevelle Series so far, and I feel that It'd be cool If I started another life story up for a different car with an entirely different story too. Feedback? 

41 deviants said Yes, I'd Like to see another Automotive Life Story after this one.
11 deviants said Yes I'd like to see another automotive life story, but please make some different unrelated paintings along side it.
1 deviant said No, One is enough for now. Another one would be a bit redundant.
1 deviant said No... It was bad enough of an idea to do one life story of a car.

I have Kurt's Chevelle as it would have been fresh into Denver, and Kurt's Elky that he lost to the hurricane, finished. Planning on building Austin Baker's iteration (albeit hoodless) once I score a Hot Wheels Chevelle SS Express, and have Kurt's current whip (the '59 Elky) drying as I type this, in Hugger Orange over maroon cloth (the latter to make it more comfortable for Kurt, Maeva and the kids in the climate of Guam).

And I would like your permission to do serial short stories based on Austin Baker (in the form of a detective magazine-style serial about the killings, Chevelle acquisition, Chevelle wreck, post-Chevelle activities, arrest, trial, incarceration and execution) and Kurt Padrewski from buying the Chevelle in 1987 to the present day, in a dime novel-style format. Austin is the most hated Chevelle Story character, Kurt the most loved, and they would have the most interesting stories... will credit you of course, the Chevelle Story was so good that the show must go on, pending your permission

I have been writing as a hobby since elementary school

Saw a nice 1970 LS6 Chevelle today, looks just like Lloyd's but with a vinyl top, pointed its owner (basically Kurt Padrewski type) to your page and story... 1971 SS396 next to it, owner reminded me of Austin Baker

Pics coming and you'll be tagged to spread the good word of the Chevelle story to assorted car folks.
