Future Historian

by Emile Bouret
It used to be that you could get an even workout on both legs when driving. Soon, with flappy paddles and mushy buttons, all you'll end up with is a strong right leg and a gait that makes you walk in big circles. We'd rather walk straight and have a right bicep like an old school bus driver. At least you can offset that by drinking beer with your left.

Artist Profile
We asked Emile Bouret for a few words on why he was qualified to design a shirt for blipshift. He was his usual verbose self: Emile has been an auto enthusiast his entire life. A graduate of the Art Center College of Design with a degree in Transportation Design, he has over 20 years experience as an automotive designer with clients including Porsche, Mitsubishi, Chrysler, Mazda, and Swift Engineering, among others. (And now blipshift!) Additionally, he has nearly 25-years experience in racing. Beginning at age eight racing three-wheeled ATVs in the AMA, Emile transitioned to car racing after attending the Jim Russell Racing Drivers School. It was there that he won his first scholarship to race, winning the 1990 Graduate Run-Offs. His driving career progressed through the ranks culminating in factory-backed efforts in production-based sedan racing in the U.S. Emile has also worked for car manufacturers such as Ferrari, BMW, and Audi as a product trainer, demonstration driver, and driving instructor in the U.S. and in Latin America. A self proclaimed "Car Freak," Emile somehow finds time between testing cars, writing about cars, and instructing aspiring drivers, to paint and illustrate his favorite automotive subjects. Clearly, his passion for the automobile comes through in everything he does; "As shallow as it may sound to non-car people, cars are my life. I live, breathe, and dream about them, and feel very fortunate that I've been able to make a living by surrounding myself with cars." Amen to that.
