Car troubles

[By Murray Dewhurst in Auckand]  I’ve been having a few car troubles lately so have been in and out of the garage a few times. The good thing about having an old car is you have to go to a garage that understands old cars, and those garages are full of old cars – just […]

Street of Dreams

[By Tina Koyama in Seattle] Yesterday was my fifth year sketching at the Greenwood Car Show, probably my favorite summertime event. Subtitled “A mile and a half of classic rides,” the annual show brings together car enthusiasts and their shiny, souped-up vehicles from all over the Puget Sound region. 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible I’ve sketched […]

Car Cache

[By Murray Dewhurst in Otaihanga and Paeroa]    A collection of kiwi cars completed over the last year, viewed in age order.  That’s an 1895 Benz Aero above – New Zealand’s oldest car – sketched at the Southward Museum in Otaihanga. Driving must have been a different experience in those days! This racing Stutz placed well […]

A 1937 Kenworth Tour Bus for Flaf

[By Gail Wong in Seattle, WA]I always wondered how Florian, Lapin and Gabi were  able to make these beautifully exaggerated drawings of cars and boats.  So thanks to the tip on drawing, I tried my hand on this 1937 Kenworth Red Tour Bus that was sitting in the Longmire Historic District right in front of […]

Smash Palace

[by Murray Dewhurst in Auckland, New Zealand] Despite missing most of it’s wheels this Jag looks like it it’s ready to make a bolt for it. Austin Sheerline limo is unusual featuring ‘razor edge design’ and those enormous Lucas headlights usually seen on Rolls Royce and Bentleys. The current school holiday’s found me in Ohakune […]

oldies but goldies!

I love imagining about their owners, highways they have crossed,memories they have witnessed and the stories behind their dust, scratches and broken parts. through my drawings I like to share their glamourous stories to remind their golden […]

Hot Air Balloons and Vintage Cars

Getting my family up and out of the house on a Saturday morning is like pulling teeth. But today was an exception. Nobody complained about the 7am wake up call to go up on hot air balloon and helicopter rides at the Wings of History Museum, a little volunteer run airplane museum and restoration center […]

“peugeot ville”

the real reason why I went to morocco is that I was invited to sketch some old cars in sidi al mokhtar, a small town between marrakech and essaouira, also called “peugeot ville”. on wednesday, for the souk, all the peugeot 404 of the area met on the main street to buy butane (they run […]

long, too long…

even in barcelona, the winter is too long for those who like sketching outside. in a way, I feel like having a winter-sketcher-depression. I had to go out sketching in spite of the cold wind, but every time go back home with a sketch AND a cold. so this year, for the “rallye de barcelona-sitges”, […]
