3 cars, a menu, and a melting sneaker
First of all Happy New Year, and I really mean it this time!! (I meant it last year too but it may not have helped.)
I consider January 1 the start of heave ho season, so I hit a certain closet and came upon family drawings of cars, from different decades.
The car above appeared in a dream that my brother in law, (Carol's first husband), had about me. He drew this after the dream. He said it was a beautiful one seater roadster.
About ten years later his son drew this picture, which fell out of a magic poster book. His father and Carol separated when John was a baby, so there was no connection at all between father and son. But aren't the cars similar?
And here's a drawing my father did-- when he was at Harvard Business School in 1936. He loved classic cars.
It was on the back of this menu. He worked as a waiter while he was a student there. Those boys were fed pretty well at the end of the depression! Tango dressing: sounds tasty!
This is a cel from a shoe commercial I did around 1972 for Connie Shoes, "under $20." All those rapidograph dots. yikes. It fell out of the same magic posters book. (Stay tuned tomorrow for pictures of my inner brat.)
