Hi, you’ve reached the website of Neil Bucknam, Automotive Illustrator.  I have been very busy recently doing shows around Southern California, painting and printmaking.  I had a great opportunity when showing my work at the Petersen Automobile Museum and was interviewed by the Discovery Channel’s HD Theater.  You can see me on a couple of episodes of ‘What’s My Car Worth?’ on Tuesday nights.  Take a look at a clip on Page 4 of this site.

I am an active member online at Artslant.com where I was a Showcase winner a couple of months ago.  You can also see my work at AutomotiveIllustrators.com or visit my Facebook account (Neil Bucknam-Artist), which I invite you all to visit and Friend. 

Lot's going on out there in the car world. The bankruptcy of GM would have seemed like a fiction a couple of years ago.  We are all in for a fundamental change in transportation going forward.  I have always painted because I am fundamentally moved to do so and have never thought of the pictures as anything other than an extension of my consciousness.  Lately, I have a sense that I’ve been capturing something that may be more fleeting than I had ever thought.

I will try to keep this site updated with the latest work and activities I am involved with.  Good luck out there!
