An Incredible Book of Drawn Vintage Cars by Lapin

We've featured French artist Lapin many times here on DA. Every time I look at his work it inspires me to drop everything and sketch. You too will fall in love with the composition of his lines and the mass collection of sketchbooks he's filled from cover to cover (look for yourself).

So it's with great joy that I learned today that he plans on publishing a book (Oldies but Goldies) with his incredible collection of drawn vintage cars found on the streets. I'll say it again, these are not drawings he's making back in his studio with photo references. He literally stumbles across a car and can't imagine passing it without respecting its history, so he sits down right then and there and draws it.



In his own words: "I project the dim light of those years in my book through my drawings and try to tell you the beauty behind the wrinkles, the experiences behind the broken parts and memories behind their dust so that they will be immortal."

He's running a campaign to raise funds to print this fantastic book. Follow the link and support this project (by doing so you'll also secure yourself a copy).

All The Pretty Ladies

One of my first true loves was Wendy, a run-down all-blue Nissan (Datsun) Stanza. Some of my most memorable stories (from my teenage years) could be traced back to my old "deep blue" and I couldn't help but reminisce while looking at the "Ladies" set of illustrated cars by France Belleville-Van Stone. It's easy to see why: Most of the watercolor drawings reveal the innate character and age of each vehicle, with strokes that feel almost like wrinkles on a person.

I wonder what Wendy looks like now. Is she just scrap at a junk yard? Or is she, even with all her imperfections, someone else's first true love.

Crash Into Me

While doing my routine afternoon browsing, I ran into Scott Teplin's weekly sketch blog. What I found was fascinating: a collection of car crash doodles. As you move from his earlier work to his latest work, airplanes are introduced and then both cars and airplanes are combined. Scott also provides a glimpse of the progress in between.
