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).

I’ve been seeing a lot of Subaru Outbacks on the road. They are a very functional outdoor vehicle. Dare I call it a ‘station wagon’ like my dad used for vacation trips?Β  Anyway, in my drawing of the Subaru, I added some much needed car top decoration.

It’s a lazy Sunday. Though, still a great time to take the bike out and hit a trail.
Here’s my drawing of the lovable Mini Cooper.

Happy 4th of July weekend y’all!
