Hey Eric! Nice work..makes me wanna find an old pick-up and hop in the back...well at my age...crawl :O) another excellent piece!...as usual
Nice buddy, dig the truck!
Wonderful! I just love your style!! Great truck! :) Silke
So fun!My dad used to delight in taking a corner and watching us roll in the back.... hee heee!
Me too! At camp - all of of my mom's siblings, plus my grandparents and their best friends - had a cabin adjoined by a dirt road. We'd ride in the back of a truck to the lake to swim - my 7 cousins (at the time), my little brother and me.
i share this fond memory! lovely Eric!!!
I've caught up all your wonderful illustrations since my last visit! Very very creatively done!
they don't make'em like they used to...Nice illo!
Fun illustration! I liked the post, too. Made me think about fun rides when I was little.
I seriously love this, I used to do that too...love the colors and the textures, awesome as always!
Super cute! Love the soft colors.
Love this! My dad had an old red Dodge. Great work.
What fun that must have been. Great illustration - which one is you?!
I like this wonderful car. And the clouds...
Thanks everyone! Caroline, I'm the brown headed kid with the chili bowl haircut.
Hi, just found your blog. What a wonderful style you have!
What would we have done without our grandfathers/grandmothers?Is it because of them giving us so mucho love and attention our longing of becoming artists developed so fervently?Nice illo, very emotional.
Amazing Illustrations you have here !! Great style, beautiful colors and the character designs perfects!!I‘ve post your link in my space !!Saludos aqui de Brasil !!
Hey Eric! What a lovely illustration! Brings me back my own childhood memories. I love it!
Did your mom REALLY put a bowl on your head and cut around it? LOL :) This is CUTE...very retro. Nowadays your Grandfather would get arrested for allowing you to ride in the back of the pickup truck! I used to LOVE doing that all the time! Great illo, Eric :)
Oh, I really love this! 1950 Chevy? Just like the one I used to have about 10 years ago. A rough but very fun ride!
Classic, ye olde pickup!Greatness!
nostalgic, an emotional rendition , priceless ,these fond memories:)beautiful
sweet and lovely - and what a great memory.We used to ride in the back of my Dads pick up truck and go to the beach - natural air conditioning whizzing through the hair feels so good!

Hey man. I came out from under my rock for the day and I just adore this moment captured because my grandfather had an old ford truck that he would take all us kids fishing in. Boy did this bring back wonderful memories for me. As always awesome work!
