Went to a local car show today...

It was in Ashton, Illinois and they have a small car show - about 100 cars. The show is next to a school and I guess the outgoing 8th graders had made artwork of their choosing to be either raffled off or voted on. Most of it was typical 8th grade stuff, but I found this drawing to be quite good and interesting:



Notice the letters have features from all of the different body styles drawn into them? Pretty cool stuff for an 8th grader.

2007 Ford Mustang GT Premium - SOLD March 2014.
2013 Ford Taurus SHO (TUXESHO) Tuxedo Black Bone stock for now.

That is a really sweet pic, I bet that kid could make quite a bit of money with their artwork. I would definately buy something like that.

A guy walks into an autoparts store and says "I would like a windshield wiper for my Honda Civic." The clerk thinks a minute then says "I guess that's a fair trade..."

What is the kids name that drew that? I bet money that kid will be either a cartoon drawer in the future, or some type of design artist!

I do have to admit though... that his circles (tires) aren't perfectly round. But if that is ALL hand drawn, it is MUCH better than what I could do!!!

Wonderful poster!

Is it just me but does that look familiar?!?!

I swear I have seen that drawing as a poster or a painting somewhere else. Maybe not as a T'bird but as another car. Since I saw that drawing it's been driving me up the wall trying to find the one I'm thinking of. But I do like it!
