If I ever learn to drive, I'll only want to drive a VW van. Must've drawn this after watching too much Little Miss Sunshine...

Yeah, Little Miss Sunshine was exactly what I thought of when I saw this. Though, while it is reminiscent of that movie, it's not to the extent that it would alienate someone that didn't know the movie, like they weren't "getting it" or something. (Kind of a pleasant reference for those who do know the movie.)

I like the lines you drew. They look kind of like they contain the shading within themselves, and, while the van is not unrealistically drawn or anything, it doesn't look like it came completely from "our world" - like it's on a different level of "happy" than everything else. Which makes little sense, but it does make me enjoy looking at this van, which must be a good thing.

And I agree with you, about only wanting to drive a VW van. It's absolutely my dream vehicle (although I want to get one and paint it psychedelic myself).

And now I'm thinking of a very similar van that I see everyday on the drive to school. It always drives by, and I always think of Little Miss Sunshine (which is a funny coincidence, because I first saw Little Miss Sunshine at school, in my screenwriting class).

I hope you know what you are doing with these old buses, the air-cooled boxer is finicky at best and you pretty much need to be a mechanic to keep it going.

My driving lessons started today, and the only car I'd actually want to drive is a VW van, too : D

Although my color of choice is earth-green.

That is my favorite car ever, and you did a beautiful rendition. The subtle background makes the drawing even better.

You must live a charmed life, sir.

I love all Volkswagens, especially buses :D (even if my classic light blue beetle with a smiley face license plate did end up being sold :( )and I love Little Miss Sunshine. Great perspective and great work.
