I have deleted the non-traditional items on my Metro illustration. What can be more traditional than a project on jack stands?
A few examples of the "4 color" T-shirt process. A black & white drawing, which uses up 2 of the colors...then try to make it interesting with only 2 remaining colors
New laser cut cardboard sign.

Fridays are always something I look forward to thanks to you guys.
Over the years we were at Lions Dragstrip almost weekly, one roadster stood out as being one of the fastest and coolest ones in attendance. Each run was loud, and powerful. One day we knew it would be a record setter in the modified roadster class. My brother and I did see the red roadster in different stages, but it did not matter which version we saw, it was fast.
1959-60 Harrell Engines
"JULY 1960 At the other end of the sport, where performance was everything and looks were secondary, H. L. [Jim] and N. J. [Nick] Harrell of Harrell Engines, Los Angeles, fielded this record-holding 1929 roadster. Driven by Don Reynolds or Willie Borsch,.., this roadster was strictly business. Eight Stromberg 48s sat atop a 4-71 GMC blower, which was Howard-chain driven from the 412-inch Chrysler’s crank. The car held numerous track records, and in the spring of 1960 set a new top speed of 144 miles per hour at LADS in Long Beach." (Hot Rod magazine Editors, 50 Years of Hot Rod, MBI Publishing, 1998, pages 54-55)
"This is the Harrell Engines car with a hemi under the hood. The A started life as the Tony Berardini's flathead powered #7 (a sister car to the now restored #404 Berardini car) but after Bob Morgan totaled Harrell's 34 coupe around 1954 Jim (White) Harrell and brother Nick purchased the roadster and put their flathead in the car. In late 1955 they teamed up with Willie Borsch to run hemi power. This is the second roll bar configuration for the car with the first being the original Berardini version as run when the car still had the original paint. Later a brace was added to this single hoop so this photo most likely dates to around 1958/9 as the brace was in place in 1960 and the engine was running a 4-71 blower with a scoop off the cowl area prior to the team debuting the altered that later became the Winged Express."
In one of my "life drawing" classes back in college, one of our assignments was a Self Portrait. Needless to say, my Prof. was not impressed with my R.Crumb inspired rendering
Not auto related...but thought some would be interested in seeing my interpretation of how I "gitter done"
Yer Prof. was nuts...that portrait is CRAZY! You nailed Crumb!
Cool Jack. Here's one from my High school art class from 1969. The teacher ask us to pair up and draw a character sketch of each other. Kari Funk drew this one of me, and I drew the one of her. I used a quarter to draw her eyes. lol She drew me on the throwaway paper that was on the table, and then gave it to me. She was a cutie. One of her pony tails got torn off over the years.
