Ron de Haer
About The Artist:
My name is Ron de Haer. I was born in 1963 and I live in the Netherlands. In 1989 I started my career as graphic designer/illustrator, working for a publishing company. After almost 18 years, in 2006, I started my own business. I’ve always had a passion for classic cars and started illustrating them in the early days of my career. So it’s no surprise I drive a classic car myself, a 1971 Ford Capri. Love to drive this car on a sunny day!
Back then I did all illustrations by hand and I used the airbrush a lot. Even now I sometimes work the old fashioned way and create my paintings by hand. But I’ve grown to love creating the cars using the computer. So these days I practically do everything digitally: of course I use the Mac, having grown up with this originally graphic computer. Today, when I create automotive illustrations, I start out with a sketch that I develop entirely digitally using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. A my illustrations are created from scratch, these aren’t manipulated photos.
Would you like an original illustration of your own car? Then don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. You can also check out my website. Prints of my work as presented on my website are available for sale, but I also accept commissions. Of course you can rest assured that commissioned illustrations will be absolutely unique pieces, and will not be sold to anyone else. The car illustrations usually are printed on a canvas of the requested dimensions. But if you prefer, I will send you a digital copy of the illustration in high resolution, for you to print yourself. This will save you the cost of shipping a canvas.
