you gotta roll with it

 These are the final couple of drawings from the rock n roll day last weekend. Actually, there's also a motorbike but that might take some time to finish. I must say that I'm pretty pleased that in just one day I produced so much stuff.

 I'l let you into a secret about the car below; it most definitely wasn't that shape. I started off at the front of the car, which was going okay. Not great but okay. Then I realised that there was absolutely no bloody way I was going to fit the whole thing onto the page. It was, after all, a big long Zodiac! So, I had a decision to make and, yes, I did. I squashed the whole thing into the space I had. Ah well, as long as we keep it to ourselves nobody else ever needs to know.

 Throughout this drawing I was thinking of my friend France Belleville and her 'ladies'.

I love your "squashed" car - it would also probably get better gas mileage than the full size. Great sketches!

OK, so you squished the car. Just a bit! But the Forever Sketchcrawl tattoo more than makes up for it! Laughing my socks off here!
(I thought of "Wagonized"when you drew the Consul)

You see here's what happens: any car you draw goes through a transformation and becomes really cute!

Thanks, guys.

I'm finding it very difficult to draw a car and not make it look like a France Belleville car. More practice is needed!

Dan, I just like cute cars!

Cheers, my dears.

Nice! Is that colored pencil and ink on moleskin paper?
