Extremely cab forward WAY before it was introduced by Chrysler, with many of the then-new '79 Mustang styling cues including the tri-spoked wheels, I forgot the headlights on this Mercedes SL wagon. Let's just say they're hidden! Not bad for a party monster of huge proportions. Make that gigantic proportions. I once had to jump out of a van going at least 30mph to escape from a machete-wielding serial killer, I kid you not, but that's another story for another time. Enjoy this drawing for now.
R E M E M B R A N C E — An illustration of a proposed Mercedes Benz sportwagon I created in 1979 when I lived in LA. I lived a 'fast' lifestyle, frequently going out to clubs for 3-4 days straight. I rarely had much money for anything except clubs and drinks and other party favors, hence the ripped piece of paper used for this drawing. Many of my friends were fellow artists, and after we came home at 6-7-8am, none of us would be tired, so we'd amuse each other by drawing, or singing, making clothes, or whatever creative spurt hit us. I was the only one that drew cars, lol.
During this period, I created a mural on my bedroom wall, a mural approximately 8 feet by 10 feet, all with a very-fine Rapidograph pen. It was completely comprised of teeny-tiny lines and geographic shapes. It took the entire 8 months I lived there to finish it. I went back to LA five years later to visit my friend Andy, and when we walked past my old place, I could see through the open window the mural was still there—not bad for a rental in West Hollywood! I know for a fact the building was razed recently, so, sadly, I have no artistic presence in LA today.
