UK graphic designer and artist Chris Labrooy riffs on custom car culture in his latest digital illustration series, “Tales of Auto Elasticity.” A follow-up to last year’s “Auto Aerobics”, in which Labrooy placed his bendy, sculptural low riders in a city park, “Tales of Auto Elasticity” shows pick-up trucks with yogic flexibility bending to extreme degrees in a rural parking lot.

As the name suggests, the series of images depict a range of brightly colored vehicles distorted and manipulated to produce elastic compositions. The warped vehicles which are an assortment of trucks can be seen mangled together in what is meant to portray how tangible pieces in real life could fit into the realm of the digital world.
