    Deal, Millar, Mayabb, Sorchik, Trosley and many others donated art to a magazine I worked for. Alas, none of it ever got published and I felt like an ass! But all these guys were very understanding about it (whew!). Deal just laughed it off. We only "met" on the phone, but he came across as a great guy - I could just feel it, you know? We hit it off. I was surprised that he sounded so youthful, too - about 16! Had a great energy about him that I try to pass on...

    That's the way it goes, but I bet some time in the future they may show up.

    I had a Volkswagon surfer bus model, that must have been based on his drawings. I also have a dune buggy toy with the same raked, balloon tired theme. Always loved that stuff.

    I always loved the art of Dave Deal! I've been collecting CARtoons for awhile and scanning the images that I really like... There are definitely a lot of his among them! I've shared a few on the CARtoons thread here on the HAMB and created a Facebook page to share them... Here's a couple...

    Dave did the Viking characters for ArmorAll and was offered stock in lieu of money and took a pass! Not to be out done, when I had the opportunity to get them as a client, I too passed as the product was presented as a windshield wiper preservative. Work with Dave on the Jackman account and he was a creative genius.

    When ever I would find his work in Hotrod magazine I would gently take it out and put it into a folder. Now I can't find that folder. Thanks Dave for all the cool art.
