Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
Actually after looking it might be a 1938 Studebaker State Commander with extras
or the Studebaker Champion. So many variation on these kind of autos of the period.
I was thinking it was a chrysler from the logo on the front, but couldn't find a good match by googling. Closest was a 1930's Airstream.
It's what The Addamms family drove. Great sketch!
LOVE IT!Thompson, something in your style makes any car look English--eccentric and fusty (neither fussy nor futzy, but a combination of the two) and fascinating. I thought an Austin or a Morris, but I don't know those cars very well.Izzit a Stude?? Chrysler Airflows, (though brilliant and memorable), were poor sellers and quite rare today. Other thought is a Hudson? My Great Grandparents owned two, including a memorable Terrapin (don't you love the marketing naivete of that long-ago age?--who would name a car after a turtle??)
The Addams car is a 1932 Packard Twin Six. This looks more like the 1940 Packard
I think the perspective is too severe, giving it that eccentric, futsy feeling. The back tapers like a Citroen (insert uberblots over the 'e') which is... French. So maybe its something else giving it some English. Vertical grill, fish gill vents along the hood rim, a couple of side mirrors near the top, two vertical bumpettes on the front bumper: definitely the first one. I'm impressed. So... is it a 1940 Packard?
