WELCOME!

Yes, welcome to The Official Automobili Cyclops SpA Website, as demonstrated by Trebor Crunchog careening a Cyclops grand prix car through the Monte Carlo Casino (above - see the main Cyclops page for the full explanation of what that was all about).

"Three Wheelin'", May 1975.   new.gif (28 Aug 2012)

on which you can click for the whole thing (4.4Mb), and in two separate thumbnails
on which you can click to see more detail:]

Stan Mott's Sketch Book.

    new.gif (06 Nov 2012)

Stan Mott ran across some old "warm up drawings, practice drawings and what-the-hell drawings".  He offers them as a beginning of a Sketch Book section and threatens that he has more.

Two might be considered by some a wee bit lurid and so are thumbnailed very coarsely (lo-res.); viewer discretion is advised.  [Sketches named (*) by SB,III (for reference only).]  Stan's captions are in "quotation marks":

Cat-and-Baby

Here are six more for the Sketch Book, with Stan's captions and commentary verbatim: new.gif (26 Nov 2012)

Can of Beans
(image courtesy of and © 1957, 2012 S. Mott - all rights reserved)

"Can of Beans" watercolor-tempera, 1957.  When I started freelancing I asked art directors what sort of samples they'd like to see?  They all said, "Oh, anything...can of beans."  When I showed the same art directors my can of beans, they asked "What's this?"  "Well, to show..."  "Got anything else?"  It was my first and last painting of a can of beans.

{Andy Warhol, move over! - SB,III}

Combat Steam Engine
[click on thumbnail for larger image.]
(image courtesy of and © 20 S. Mott - all rights reserved)

"Combat Steam Engine", ink-pencil-watercolor, 1973.  Back in 1959 pal Robert Cumberford and I conjured up the article "The International Automobile Games."  New production cars would be armed with 50-caliber machine guns, set loose in a giant arena to shoot it out in two dimensional dog fights.  The surviving car would be acclaimed "Car of the Year".  Sales would sky rocket!  Surprise!  No magazine would touch it.  Years later I changed tactics; "Why not arm hot steam engines and...?"  But figured the feature would be more salable if I sent them racing.  Road & Track printed "Les 24 Heures du Choo Choo" in November 1981.
{See Les 24 Heures du Choo Choo.}

Threesome or Menage a Trois
(image courtesy of and © 20 S. Mott - all rights reserved)

"Threesome" or "Menage a Trois", oils 1971.  Now I don't want anyone getting the wrong idea about that title.  No sexual innuendos whatsoever.  No sir.  Pablo Picasso fancied painting two faces with one profile back then.  So I decided to go Pabs baby one more and paint three (3) faces in one.  Woah!  So all of you folks in the Moral Squads can put away your torches and pitch forks and stand down, at ease.  Dismissed!  Fast march, hep hep hep hep!

Bugatti World
(image courtesy of and © 20 S. Mott - all rights reserved)

"Bugatti World",  pencil-watercolor 1983.

Hands & Feet
(image courtesy of and © 20 S. Mott - all rights reserved)

"Hands & Feet".  pencil-watercolor, 2011.

Psychedelic Diogenes Babe
(image courtesy of and © 20 S. Mott - all rights reserved)

"Psychedelic Diogenes Babe"  Prismacolor pencil-watercolor, 1973.


Ten More for the Sketch Book, again with Stan's captions and commentary verbatim (and in the order received): new.gif (28 Nov 2012)

Rockin' Head
(image courtesy of and © 2003, 2012 S. Mott - all rights reserved)
"Rockin' Head", pencil and watercolor, 2003, roughs for an animated MTV video.  They didn't buy.  So I took my drawings and went home,
and they can't look at them any more!  You can.  But they can't.  Nyah!

"Gladiator & Grand Prix Dragon", 1996, ink and watercolor.jpg

Pardner, howdy!
[click on thumbnail for larger image.]

"Pardner, howdy!" 1998, tempera on magazine ad.  I sent it to the bridge owners along with a note;  "We'll build a massive white hat on top and paint huge black boots on the base, with a star on each.  It'll give your bridge class.  And believe me no one'll ever think it looks like a giant bowlegged cowboy."  I received a form letter back saying they appreciated my interest in their bridge.  God bless them!

{Well, I can easily see why the South Koreans didn't go for that version of the Incheon bridge; it's nekkid (unarmed)!  With Seoul only some 10 miles from the North Korean line, bet a pair of Patton's big pearl-handled six-shooters, set low for cross-drawing, would have sold it! - SB,III:}

Toyota Avalon Intro
[click on thumbnail for larger image.]
(image courtesy of and © 1994, 2012 S. Mott - all rights reserved)

"Toyota Avalon Introduction Drawings For Automobile Magazine", 1994, pencil and watercolor.  David E. Davis, Jr. requested that Robert Cumberford and I deliver a "fresh and different" report on the introduction of the new Toyota Avalon.  As such, we decided to include a few comments made by attending journalists, which do not normally get into print.
Unpublished {Gee, I wonder why?. - SB,III:}
