Vintage Monopoly Race Car
When we were kids, growing up in Algonac, Michigan, we’d actually play Monopoly instead of watching the family’s 19-inch, black and white TV that got three main channels, abc, CBS, and NBC, plus UHF channel 50. Those were are TV choices. But Monopoly, you could play that for a couple of hours at a time. My favorite game piece was the race car, but I usually got stuck with the iron. I have no idea why. That’s just how it seemed to turn out. The thing I really love about this drawing is the actual texture of the metal. I feel very fortunate that I was able to capture the unevenness and imperfections. I think that’s what makes this so cool to me. Plus the size is pretty awesome.
