Inexpensive illustrations
 
I just framed these 8 x 10 illustrations to hang either in my shop or in the house somewhere. Take a quick look at them before I tell you (below) the back story.

Well, some of you PPG fans may have already guessed. These line drawings actually came from a PPG coloring book that I got for free in a goody bag at a car show this summer. And the frames cost me all of $9.00 (for all 6). Not bad for a little wall decoration.

These are about the best I can do without taking the frames all apart to get the pictures out. I sorta like the second one because I got a lens flare totally by mistake and it came out right on the bumper chrome.

Let me guess, they are still uncolored because they took your crayons away. :nono:

The guards won't let you have sharp objects, eh Dewey? :D

Cboy,

Those are cool line drawings. They almost look like Thom Taylors work.
I use to do a lot of that with Rapidographs on Vellum before I started using Illustrator. I have a whole box of car drawings I did...sitting in my garage.
Thanks for showing them. They brought back some memories!

Laughing too hard to even think up a comeback.

I collect magazine car adds from the '30's thru the '70's. There is some really neat art in these adds.

I tried to draw on some of my mom's Valium one time...














But the pills were so small, that my crayon kept falling off the edge.

Later, mikey
