American automotive artist Darrell Mayabb has teamed with PPG Industries' (NYSE:PPG) automotive refinish business to create many one-of-a-kind pieces. Mayabb has designed and illustrated popular PPG car posters for years, and since 2007, he also has created annual PPG Automotive Refinish calendars. The pieces are sought by auto "buffs" who prize Mayabb’s artwork. The 2012 items will be available for purchase at the PPG show truck during its scheduled appearances throughout the coming year.

Mayabb's automotive illustrations are in demand by car magazines, racers and hot rod aficionados around the world. He is well-known for his unabashed love of cars, and his talent has earned him a well-deserved place in the National Rod & Custom Car Hall of Fame Museum in Tulsa, Okla.

“We are fortunate to have such an amazing talent available to us,” said Randy Cremeans, PPG marketing director, collision sector refinish. “Darrell just gets better and better every year, and we get more and more requests for his calendars. He is a genuinely gifted artist who loves cars. I can’t think of a better combination of qualities.”

Mayabb’s association with PPG began in 1996, when a PPG Automotive Refinish regional manager noted Mayabb’s illustrations in Rod & Custom, Hot Rod, Street Rodder and other major hot rod magazines. He brought Mayabb together with PPG to generate ideas to attract people to the company’s booths at National Street Rod Association shows. Mayabb responded with colorful drawings that drew fans to the PPG exhibits. PPG subsequently commissioned him for several original art projects and asked him in 2007 to channel his talents into a PPG annual calendar.

As a young man in the 1950s, Mayabb was influenced by the big names in hot rod design – “Big Daddy” Ed Roth and Tom Medley, creator of the “Stroker McGurk” cartoon character series in Hot Rod – which led him to develop an artistic style known for its color, line and cartoon qualities. He attended the Central Academy of Art in Cincinnati, Ohio, and graduated at the top of his class in design. Early in his career, Mayabb was the illustrator on the NASA Apollo project. He has designed cars for NASCAR race team owner Joe Gibbs and painted a portrait of Dale Earnhardt for Chevrolet. In 1999, Mayabb's industry peers awarded him the Stroker McGurk Award for outstanding work. Today, Mayabb lives in Colorado, where he works in a barn that he converted into a studio.
