2009 saw the launch of Rallyist Publications in the Mud and Rain of the 2009 Rallyshow at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire with the release of the cartoon Book 'The Rallyist' by artist cartoonist and owner of rallyist Publications, Paul M. Ellender. This light hearted cartoon collection was followed in 2010 by Rallyist-2. From day one of the books release the artwork was well recieved and suggestions followed for this style of artworks being applied to acutal Historic Rally cars.
This soon lead to commissioned work including the creation of a 10 car collection of the cars driven by British rally champion Russell Brookes and his association with Andrews Heat for hire. Other Historic cars were then added to create the basis for Rallyist art to used for Merchandising. Customer Research linked to the Merchandise also lead to creation of the Rallyist Colouring book,( the First of its kind ever! well we like to think so) and a susequent Autograss version launched this Christmas. Colouring book versions of Too Much Speed, and Not Enough Wheels are planned for the future.
Parrallel to the release of the above titles will be the 2013 Rallyist Road Show, combining the launched with the promotion of The Rallyist & Rallyist-2 to the European Market. A mobile Art Gallery / Trade stand will be used to support events from F1 to DTM, and from the NASCAR Euro Race Car Series to World Championship Rallying.
