Chip and I have met before and chatted at a charity event, and he was in Dallas for the Auto Show, so he came by and spent a little time with us.
In 1998, Chip and his wife Lynne started their Huntington Beach, California-based company Foose Design, an automotive and product design development company. His company specializes in illustration, graphics, ideation model making, surfacing and complete construction of automobiles and automotive related products. These products are available to private individuals, television, film and the automobile manufacturers.
In November of 1997, Chip was inducted into the Hot Rod Hall of Fame at Peterson Publishing’s 50th anniversary held at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In 2005, Chip was honored to be personally selected by John Lasseter of Pixar to contribute paint schemes and graphic treatments to certain characters from the hit movie “Cars”. This relationship has since expanded to a showcase of original Chip Foose “Cars” artwork at Disney Theme Parks and a role as a consultant on the sequel, “Cars 2”.
Along with his wife Lynne, Chip continues to run his business Foose Design, where he designs and builds automotive masterpieces.
