I was staring at the DKNG blog this morning looking at screenprints and came across an entry about Kevin Cyr’s vehicle paintings. I was, of course, slack-jawed and teary-eyed. I have collections of photos of cars and trucks, obviously, and my favorites that seem to transcend their purpose as reference for Everything Goes drawings are the ones that have some personality to them. Graffiti, decaying signage, special purposes, etc. Kevin Cyr paints these vehicles and my my my are they lovely paintings at that.
My favorite of course is the Ice Cream Truck series, one of which was on 20×200 a few years ago.
