The global Urban Sketchers group on flickr has weekly themes. This week it is “trucks”. What better place than the LeMay – American’s Car Museum to sketch! I have several sketches of trucks in older sketchbooks but it was good to have a new one to post for the theme. There were many vintage trucks from which to pick but I liked this 1934 Ford tow truck as it created more of a scene with the mannequin and dog. It was part of the “Tools of the Trade” exhibit.
I never got off the top floor, though I have been there before and wandered the whole place. There was also a BMW exhibit and this little Isettra was the weirdest car on the floor!
The back shelf had a wind up key, which I assume is an in-joke.
We shared sketches, had our group photo and shared lunch together. A couple Museum docents came to look at our sketches, too.
