    for my humanities class, we have to write a paper about a local (Michigan) artist, a piece of architecture.....anything art or architecture related basically. since i am going into industrial design, i chose to write about vehicle design, and id like to try to focus on one designer, or a team.

    any input?

    *EDIT*
    im going to do it on Tom Peters, GM Director of Design for Global RWD Vehicles.......Mr. c6 vette, camaro concept, caddy xlr, and the aztek.

    liek any specifics? im gonna head to a bookstore soon and start digging shit up.

    i need 4 sources, and only 1 can come from the internet (yea i know, bullshit)....but if its online but was originally from a mag or book, i can use it as long as it says where/when its from.
