SF auto show

I had never been to a car show before, thought it would be fun, not only to see next year’s designs, but to sketch. It was pretty crowded, I took a couple photos, and sketched from that. The Academy of Art University has a large and wonderful antique car collection as it turns out. They presented a handful, including some of their smallest and most eclectic, really fun. This is an example, designed by a man who normally designed aircraft. It was designed/built after WWII as economical, basic transportation, very affordable. I’m not sure I did it’s funny shape justice. When you look at it directly from the front it looks somewhat like a frog with it’s bug-eyed headlamps!
