the car and the cafe girl - 100 drawings in 100 days

i took a drive to my home town, toowoomba several months back, and i just had to go check out my old street. my old house was a little bit different, but the house across the street was just the same. old man cumner (after whom the street was named. i want a street named after me!) owned this huge block of land, and among other things, he was fond of collecting old decrepit cars. this one is no exception - i think it's been there since i was a child! so, this drawing is called "old man cumner's car", and features the down-trodden fence to boot!
the other drawing is of my friend alana, who works in my favourite coffee shop in the world - the red cup in oklahoma city. if ever you are in the midwest and need a great coffee, and a fabulous vegetarian meal served by the sweetest hippies, go to the red cup on classen blvd. in okc. this is a picture i took of alana arranging some yellow roses, and i think it might just make the cut to the 100 paintings in 100 days!!

Good luck! Saw your project on twitter, and that you're a printmaker too. Yea!! I mostly do lithography these days. See ya.
