The Volkswagen Beetle has come a long way from being a concept of Hitler’s in the 1930’s. Originally called the Volkswagen Type 1, it was born from the need of a cheap and simplistic car design, yet powerful enough to travel on the Autobahn.

From out of the darkness of WWII, however, the Bug is adopted as a symbol of Peace. And now, a fun way to get to your favorite activity destination. Am I starting to sound like a car commercial?

My drawing is based on the new Beetle that was re-introduced to the world in 1998 (including a cool mountain bike).
