Oldies But Goldies : A sketchbook dedicated to vintage car drawings

"Time is cruel" they say. It takes away the youth, put wrinkles instead. But actually wrinkles are nothing more than the marks of memories and experiences. They make you beautiful,wise and serene.

I'm not able to pass by an old car without remaining indifferent and drawing it.

I love imagining about their owners, highways they have crossed, memories they have witnessed and look for more stories behind their dust, scratches and broken parts. I appreciate the beauty, wisdom and serenity standing on four wheels. I like to project the journey of these pioneers of the roads on his sketchbooks so their glamour will never be forgotten.

Since years I practice my passion for those old, abandoned cars by drawing them.
In this book I portray the yellow seat 600 at the back of a garage, the 1970 Cadillac which is lost in a narrow street, Citroen 2CV that lead me to my childhood and the R12 that my father used to have.

I project the dim light of those years in my book through my drawings and try to tell you the beauty behind the wrinkles, the experiences behind the broken parts and memories behind their dust so that they will be immortal...

    Hola.
    No he recibido el libro aún y creo que ha pasado un tiempo más que prudencial. Le he enviado un correo y tampoco he recibido respuesta. Espero noticias. Un saludo

    Bonjour Lapin,
    Le livre Oldies But Goodies est enfin arrivé aujourd'hui même. Quelle joie! Le retard est dû à une erreur dans le code postal. Enfin, tout est bien qui finit bien: un GROS MERCI et BRAVO pour vos illustrations de bagnoles, j'adore!

    Moi aussi, je commence à m'inquiéter sérieusement de votre envoi! Normalement le courrier Europe-Canada arrive au bout d'une semaine ou au plus tard 2 semaines. Or nous sommes le 21 janvier aujourd'hui et toujours rien! Merci de me répondre.

    hola guik,
    votre livre a été envoyé le 22 décembre dernier.
    la poste espagnole m’a informé que suite à la quantité d’envoies en cette période de l’année, le délais de livraison pourrait être plus long qu’à la normal.
    ce matin, un espagnol m’a informé qu’il venait de recevoir son livre envoyé le même jour.
    toutefois, si vous n’avez rien reçu dans les 10 jours, je me verrai obligé à renouveler l'envoie.
    veuillez m’excuser pour le désagrément,
    bonne soirée, lapin.
