The artist usually uses a photo to digitally sketch (vector) the design on an on a drawing tablet which acts as a canvas board for the artist. The artist then uses a variety of programs to sketch the design digitally. Depending on the complexity of the drawing, Dion's automotive illustrations can take up to 100 hours to complete.
Realism Automotive Art
As you can see from the picture below, the photo realism of our designs is quite astonishing. Dion's background as an Aircraft Structural Engineer and the ability to work with tolerances of only 1 thousandth of an inch has carried over onto his canvas board. Along with over 25 years of experience in automotive artistry, Dion Mifsud brings a level of expertise to his craft that's missing from other designers. Specialising in pencil and digital illustration, it's Dion's attention to detail and drives for perfection that has made him a master of his craft.

The canvas material used for our prints is a blend of strong human-made fibres. They are guaranteed not to deteriorate-unlike cotton canvas material which can deteriorate over time. It is incredibly durable, does not sag in humid weather conditions and does not require re-stretching. All our canvas prints have UV block out properties, so they are resistant to the sun's UV rays.
We use the highest quality UV resistant archival inks. Their archival properties mean they can last up to 120 years before they begin to fade, so they will outlast the best of us!
Kiln dried timber is our preferred material for our canvas frames. Carefully constructed, they feature bevelled edges which prevent ghosting (ghosting is when you can see the frame faintly through the canvas). The prints have big corner supports especially on larger frames, and strong industrial glue is also used as well as staples to secure the frame pieces together which means your canvas will be robust and durable.
Canvas Gallery Finish
A Gallery finish is available standard on all our canvas prints. Gallery finish means excess cloth at the back of the frame is cut off, and the staples covered with tape. We also use screws to attach the cord behind the canvas art. The advantages of the Gallery finish is that the tape protects your walls from any possible effects of the staples against the wall, plus the height of the canvas can be adjusted by tightening or loosening the cord with the screws. Below is a sample of the back of our canvas.
We use the latest state-of-the-art wide format commercial printers to print all our canvas art. They produce high, sharp image quality accurate colours. Since the printing process is heat supported, it fixates the colours deeply into the canvas fibres producing a matte, clear image which is rich in colour.
