I would love to tweak any of my illustrations to recreate your own car – change the paint colour, wheels and other details. I can create a car from scratch if it fits my mid-century sensibilities – try me, send a photo!
Beware the ice cream
I took this photo on my phone a few years ago. We had been on a road trip and stopped in some small town for an ice cream. It was a hot afternoon, there was nobody around so we found a spot under a tree opposite the local hotel and enjoyed the silence. I lay on the grass contemplating my lovely car, it was somehow different viewed from the side. It became two dimensional, I liked how it flattened off against the building behind. The only hint of any depth was suggested by the hard shadows created by the hard mid-afternoon sun. Little did I know this idle moment would lead to scores of illustrations based on that simple thought. It's a hazardous business stopping for an ice cream on a hot Sunday afternoon.
