Gnarly truck, dude! You pulled up next to me at the bank in North Portland and you ran to the ATM in the rain. I grabbed my camera, snapped a few photos and handed you a card. You sneered, threw it in your backseat and roared off in a cloud of blue smoke and dog hair. I still like your Bronco, though.
Dammit guys, I'm never going to finish my quest to illustrate every Toyota if you guys keep winning my daily Sneak Peek game. (Truthfully, it's nice to get a little variety sometimes) Today I'm featuring @yourmomstits and his trusty, indestructible Ford Ranger Sport. I used to rent these through Budget back in the day and I abused the shit out of them, but they never complained. I'd like to hear the same statement made of your mom's tits. Enough potty mouth, get back to work!
Another Sneak Peek winner today, everyone take a moment to give @zap_actionsdower a big thumbs up. You can earn a free illustration of your car just like he did by guessing at my daily Sneak Peek. Each time you are the first to guess the next day's car correctly you get a point. Five points and you get a free illustration, or if you are in the US you can choose a free framed print or a sticker set. Good luck!
Staying local today, this Thunderbird is parked a few blocks from my house and has been begging me to lay down its long straight lines. This particular model is a 1979 Heritage Edition and is a last celebration of the truly large personal coupe. The 1973 and 1979 oil crises, along with the instroduction of more efficient imports, spelled disaster for the American land yacht.
Commision for Tom Manzo. He just sold his pristine 350Z, one that had never seen rain (in Portland!!), and picked up this Ecoboost Mustang.
Dayam! What a Mach One! Found this parked down the street from my house the other day and with that loooong hood, bright blue paint and American Racing VN501s, how could I NOT draw it?
It's not hard to believe, but illustrating American cars from the fifties is just plain fun. The chrome, the wings, the styling... what's not to like? The other day I spotted an Edsel parked down the street from my house and I while it wasn't in such great condition, it fueled a fire to get the profile down in "ink". Illustrated here is a 1959 Corsair post sedan, of which only about 3300 were sold in the US. Sure, Work Seeker CXs might not ever get bolted to one of these ugly ducklings, but maybe they should.
Another winner of my daily guessing contest, @nauyop's project is a first-generation Ford Mondeo... err, that's a Ford Contour/Mercury Mystique here in the States. He's envisioned it bagged with some Fifteen52 Tarmacs filling the wells, so I've illustrated it that way as well.
