I found this old Chevrolet truck in a vintage wrecking yard in Maricopa, Arizona. I love the challenge of painting weathered surfaces, and with my background in Graphic Design, I am drawn to the advertising images used on old truck bodies. This one features a design element common in the sixties, using a cartoon character to animate the typography.
