Just Like a Car, You're Pleasing to Behold

I'll call you Jaguar if I may be so bold...

You may remember I've got a soft spot for vintage cars. But kind of in the same way that Marc Bolan does. As it turns out, as much as the flamboyant front man of T Rex loved to sing about and collect cars, he apparently never learned to drive--and as much as I like to draw old cars, I actually know next to nothing about them other than what they look like on the outside.


At any rate, right down the block from us is a little shop called Ace and Jerry's Auto Glass where there are really cool cars parked out front, pretty frequently. This one happens to be for sale, if anyone's interested in a Buick Roadmaster of undetermined year (which is to say I don't know--I'm sure the seller would have a better idea). With any luck, people will keep parking their cool-looking cars out front, giving me something to draw when I go on walks to the market to pick up cough drops and such.

Also, incidentally...

Addendum: it's a 1954-ish model, and the seller is asking for 15 K.
Also, I found a pair of concrete boots and a tommy gun with half a clip in the trunk for no extra charge.

Lovely characterful drawings.
And great line work.
Did you use a running out felt tipped pen?

Hey there anthony! I'm not in Provo anymore! I moved back home to Georgia. I'm a carpenter by day and I draw the rest of the time that I can. I think I will be tackling a graphic novel with my brother but we'll see.
