Junk yard dog, early VW

House paint on brown paper bag. This series of early autos was inspired by my love of car shows and growing up in the '50s and '60s when the design of a car seemed to mean something. All that "forward thinking" is now rusting away or in a few cases, preserved by car buffs. "Junk yard dogs" are rapidly disappearing as junk yards disappear. I love the contrast between the "space aged design" of the autos and the rough media I chose to represent them in.
