Modes of Transportation Series Begins with "The Zephyr"

After his recent Mondo Gallery show, Laurent Durieux could pretty much do whatever he wanted.  And not just in the pop culture realm.

With that in mind, it seems like Laurent has chosen to venture out into something a little bit different by taking on a series for Ford Craftsmen Studios entitled "Modes of Transportation."  As you probably guessed from the title, the series deals with various modes of transport in different locales.

First up, we have Trains in California for a piece entitled "The Zephyr."  As explained by FCS, the Zephyr "was a stainless steel clad train designed to transport passengers with class.  The Zephyr included a viewing car with lots of windows to see the American countryside."

Much like Laurent's other work, the detail and colors are perfect.  They also both have that classic and timeless feel that Durieux conveys so well.

If these are anything like the rest of the series, we're looking forward to what comes next!
