  • Bulletnose as art...sculpture

    In the new Autoweek there is an article about the car-based sculpture of Bernard Corman, who in true artist style goes by the single name Bernardo.

    The piece mentioned he did a Studebaker verion in his "Carp" series..

    Check it out...P.S. copies are for sale and are affordable.

    Bonus question: what famous American sculptor/artist has a direct connection to Studebaker?
    He learned to weld while working at South Bend after dropping out of Notre Dame in the mid-20s.

        It might be called "Carp", but one of those bug-eyed goldfish was used as a model.

          Smith is one of my favorites. I love his Cubi series.

              Okay guys, I wrote Bernardo and suggested the '58 Packard Hawk, his reply:

              "Hi Thomas thanks for writing. I'm honored that you guys like my suff.
              I do find that Stude similar to the catfish.
              How many of these are you guys gonna buy if I make this? Maybe you'd like to preorder..
              Let me know..cheers
              Bernardo"

              Whoever wants to own a Bernardo Packard Hawk catfish sculpture needs to speak up - send Bernardo an email: bernardo.corman@gmail.com
