Old Racing Car Art

As I poked around a trunk of old papers, I found the working drawing and the finished sketch of a piece I submitted to the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design (NSCAD) for acceptance in the art & design program there in the late 1970's.

Needless to say, I got in. But as I review what I drew, it was way before I started studying the history of racing, so I understand it is a not-so-accurate interpretation of a vintage racer.

But it did the job it had to do.
It's funny that it took 28 years before I got it right.
