Twenty years of working on comic books and graphic novels is bound to color the way a person interprets the world. For Archie Comics past art-director and the proprietor of Pepitone Creative Services & JoepeP Automotive Portraits, Joe Pepitoneor JoePep (written JoepeP) as hes known to his friends and to the art world, this has influenced his illustrations with bold, bright colors, careful yet whimsical detailing, and in his beloved automotive portraits, an overriding knowledge of and passion for his four-wheeled subjects.
As an automotive illustrator JoepePs work has been featured in Hemmings Classic Car magazine "Auto Art" October 2009 and most recently was one of the featured artists at the AACA Museum at Hershey "Night at the Museum" event. In January 2013 Hemmings Muscle Machine showcased JoepePs Carroll Shelbys CSX2128 in their Speedobilia.
Working on comic books and graphic novels, it shows in his careful, yet whimsical attention to detail in his beloved automotive portraits. That skill was put to good use in July 2012, when JoepeP was commissioned to illustrate Carroll Shelby's CSX2128 for an event honoring Shelby's life and designs.
