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).

World's
(image courtesy of and © S. Mott - all rights reserved)
"World's First Sport Ute, 1946", ink, watercolors. I designed it for a "Mott's Spot" in Automobile magazine in 1997. The text read:
"The first sport utes were created by bored American occupation troops in Germany. They built them out of pre-WWII European cars and U.S. tanks.
They were used to buzz the ave, pick up women, and subdue the opposition." The editors felt that it did not quite project the proper image of sport utes.
Unpublished.

Rolling On The River
[click on thumbnailed picture for larger/sharper image]
(image courtesy of and © S. Mott - all rights reserved)

"Rolling On The River", 1971, ink, watercolor. Inspired by the musical masterpiece "Proud Mary" by Ike & Tina Turner.
The characters are Sam & Medlo of international smuggling fame, with friends, groovin' in my version of Proud Mary's engine room.
Yes, those are giant valves on which they're dancing, rising high and falling low to the music.
Yes, there are flashing lights and giant spinning wheels and pumping arms and a chorus of dancers springing around the machinery.
Yes, to glorious sounds and action!


Stepping out of the usual series of illustrations der Herr Mott executed (and, happily, still executes), here's a unique one that he just did as a personal favo(u)r to me; it's a 1931 Chrysler Imperial 8 CG Close-Coupled Sedan, "Old Betsey", I used to own and which is now fully restored and enjoyed by Greg Nowak out in Seattle:   new.gif (13 Feb 2013)

Old Betsey

Stan's mastery of line perfectly captures the elegance of the design and the "s__t-e_ting grin" on the driver absolutely exemplifies what it is to sit 'way back behind that enormous hood/bonnet and scoon!  I am inordinately pleased with this drawing; as soon as it is suitably framed, it will occupy a place of hono(u)r in my home!


Merry Christmas - 2012!   new.gif (22 Dec 2012)

This is Stan's last for 2012; wishing you all a Merry Christmas:

Stan was evidently concerned that this "card" might be somewhat less than appropriate for the season - gee, I (SB,III) find it a DEVILISHLY clever Xmas present!  I join Stan in his wish BUT - it wouldn't be me if this didn't inspire me to just one last gasp of insanity for the year:

but, as usual, to whom and why?)

[Stan has always forgiven me my little abberations in the past; hopefully, he will this one more time.]

[By the bye, should you have enjoyed this (Stan's) Dampflok image, you might wish to jump back
and see his "Les 24 Heures de Choo-Choo".]

YAGHTING (yes - yaGhting!) - In le Maître's own words: "Luxury yachting in only 28ft!  Did a seven-page feature for National Lampoon in 1980 called "Yaghting" (who knows how to spell yachting?).  Satire on yachting magazines; art work, photos, text.  Editor - - - bought - - - it.  Replacement editor - - - did not think it politically correct enough.  Sank it.  The b&w illy was in color, for cover, copied in b&w.  The cutaway came with text, a detailed examination and boat test.  (Note luxury hang line for crew.)   (A hang line was a rope stretched out on which drunk sailers could, well, hang instead wallowing in muck in low life hotels.)"   new.gif (20 Mar 2013)

Probably should have been submitted to ROWBOATING or SCOWING for true appreciation, eh?  The long and short of it is that this is certainly the height of something (or other).  Gee, I think it should be repowered with a Cyclops XBS-V-1SML engine (see above).


Pencil (Tree) Saver ca. 2001 - Here is "Cap'n Stan's" Tree Saving pencil holder.  Stan writes that he "invented it in something like 2001 and have been quite happily using them ever since."  "They have an excellent feel, are adjustable, and help you to use 90% of a pencil, as opposed to maximum 70% if held sans holder.  And they cost .01¼¢ each."   new.gif (20 Apr 2013)

"I send this diagram to those who use pencils to get more milage out of them."  "And for educational purposes for those under 40 who've never heard of the confounded things."

    [Pencils?  Pencils?  Who remembers pencils?  See the E.C.B.S. on my (SB,III's) Home Page 2.]


Get Well Wishes - Having been laid up with my leg elevated much of April, 2013, I (SB,III) heard from "Doctor Stan" as follows: "In order to raise your spirits in time of need...  Okay, I did it 53 years ago for a friend in New York.  Thus the named celebrities of that time and the yellowish tint.And I inserted your name.  But who that matters will know the difference?"   new.gif (21 Apr 2013)

Well, I know and now you of Stan's adoring public know.  The "Doctor" certainly knows how to cheer one up!  Actually, he's a fiend (assuming you remember the lucious stars named therein), but I hadda share this with you all.

Actually, you can easily tell that's not really me in there; if it had been me, a mechanical engineering type,
that flap would have been fastened thusly:

Of such petty matters are empires won and lost!


New Stan Mott Images

Stan offered these two new images on 28 Jul 2013 to let us know that he's still breathing over there, something that more friends and colleagues are no longer doing.  There's also a new version of the redoubtable Cyclops, posted to Cyclops Page 3.   new.gif (02 Aug 2013)

RACING STEAM LOCOMOTIVES - Stan wrote on 08 Mar 2014 (I seem to be slowing down these days) that his work "is happily getting into Russia, and helped inspire Andrew Ledenev and his Digital Light Studio team to create 'Steam Speed'".  Stan characterizes Ledenev's opus as "a brilliant professional video about racing steam engines"; the link is:   added.gif (24 Apr 2014)

  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4RIBmM2ZF0.

Stan sent his compliments (high praise from le Maître, indeed) to Ledenev, who responded (in part): "I would like to thank you for the inspiration that your images 'Les 24 Heures de Choo-Choo" [the 24 Hours of Choo-Choo (as in Le Mans)' gave us in our animation project 'Steam speed'.  Thank you!  - - - The same idea came to me and my friend when we were students and great fans of Formula 1 racing in early 90's.  We wanted to create a parody of the race, but with steam trains.  Unfortunately we couldn't realize our vision at that time.  We've restored our old idea in 2013.  We remembered many things and jokes we thought out later and added many more.  We looked for the reference images and found your perfect imagery!  We were shocked :)  We thought the idea and vision was very close to ours.  And this fact gave us inspiration and confidence, that we were in right way."

By, oh boy; were they EVER in the right way!  I (SB,III) hope you enjoy their work as much as Stan and I do.
