British Bulldog by nailgungfx British Bulldog by nailgungfx
It's been said that holidays not only recharge your batteries, but bring the best out of you. I couldn't agree more with that.

Here's a little sampler from what I've been doing during my holidays. It all began from a napkin sketch, as I was drinking coffee one morning in a beach cafe and this gorgeous mini arrived and parked outside of the cafe :)

Actually I'm thinking of buying one of these, but the value for money is quite low I'm afraid. Still they're gorgeous to look at.

Allright!!! It's good to see the master back at it!!! I love mini coopers - only mini I've ever even thought about buying (might be funny... I'm 6' tall and sized like an NFL linebacker... :P ).

That looks awesome - and the best paint scheme, too. :)

get a suzuki swift sport =D its less powerful, but more practical, smaller, and just as nice to drive, the interior is still good even though not as funky =/ just my 2 cents

Suzuki hmmmmmm.... lemme think...
Jap-size interiors, cheap quality materials....
It's sounds like a no-go for me.

However with the same amount of money you'd be paying for the Mini S
you can find a good 2nd hand 2006 Mercedes SLK. Less powerful but boy,
a real babe magnet! :D

have I ever told you that I wish the same thing as you do?
It's easy to do though, just close your eyes, think of your favorite car, give it a heart and soul and let it speak for it self!

Then put what you saw on paper :)

Thank you very much!
