has 20 years under his belt as a professional illustrator. He also has an appreciation for autos. Those two passions have come together in a new sketchbook called Costumes & Cars
in which Ring pairs some of the most popular comic book characters of all time with the cars that best match their personalities. The idea for the sketchbook came about when Ring was doing a sketch of the Punisher and decided he needed a new car. The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
seemed like a perfect fit for this anti-hero with an agenda. From there, other characters were paired with their four-wheeled counterparts. The Joker likes to laugh, so he gets a 1974 Mustang II
. The Green Arrow was paired with a Corvette Stingray
that's as sharp and fast as his namesake weapon, while the gruff Wolverine of X-Men fame hops on the back of a Harley Davidson Heritage Softail
Costumes & Cars
is 32 pages thick, and well over half are sketches like the ones you'll see in the gallery below. It costs just $5, but only 300 will be printed, so if there's a dad or grad in your life that shares Chris Ring's passion for comics and cars, you better move quick and click here
