1969 Dart 440 GSS (in full psychedelic colour)

I used to draw all of the time ; it was a daily ritual . Oftentimes , I'd finish at least one drawing in one sitting ; I would seldom "revisit" , "revise" or "embellish" any of my pieces . Once I considered the drawing done , it was done .

This drawing is one of the very few drawings which I decided to embellish post facto . It was originally just a black and white piece . I've used a G2 Gel Pen almost exclusively since 1998 . 100% freehand .

So , about a year or two after I finished this drawing , I thought , upon coming across it again , "Y'know ... this one needs to be 'colourised' !" , so out came my Prisma Color pencil set .

After I'd finished colouring the pic , I put it away again .

Now , it's Christmas , 2003 . I'd remembered that a good friend mentioned on numerous occassions just how much he liked this particular piece . So , I found a frame in one of the local thrift stores ; but just framing it wasn't going to be enough ...

... so I dug-out one of my 1969-vintage "Peace Hand" decals ( at one time , I had a roll of ten of these gems !) and arbitrarily-placed it between the frame's glass facad and the drawing itself .

Without further ado :

It was influenced by the typical 1968-1971 Dodge and Plymouth illustrated ads .
