race cars #5 and #6

I've completed the six collage race cars I've been working on for the last couple of weeks. These are all for The Main Line Art Center's Children's Book Fair this Sunday, February 8. I'll post a picture of all six in the next day or two, or you can see them all here.
These are collage/paintings, made with magazines, the yellow pages, various papers, and acrylic paint on 10 x 10 inch plywood. They'll be for sale at the show, but I've yet to settle on a price.
I've written this before, but I haven't enjoyed making stuff this much in a long time. I hope to make more of these, and I hope to find ways of incorporating this technique in my books and illustrations.
