distractions

I can't believe it's Wednesday already. My new goal to draw more is still going strong...I've been trying to draw or paint everyday. I thought I'd post some pics of a pet project I've been workin on for a couple of years now. I've got this obsession with old bugs...I really don't know why. I've had several over the years. I found this old '61 in fairly good shape on ebay. Once I started to fix it up, I found that the front end had been bashed in a little. I cut the old front end off and replaced it with another nice straight section. Once I had done that I figured I might as well weld in a sunroof too. Here are a few pictures of my fun little project. I'm almost done!

Is that the Ebay-financed Bug? How fabulous!
