Every couple few years I get a shot at doing the artwork for the Annual Buses by the Bridge event in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The show organizers are good friends and it’s fun to do a full cartoon design.
Before I get into this recap, I need to thank Cory “Screamin Eagle” Houck and Ronnie “Disco Boogie” Feitelson. Freedom of design is a great gift to give a designer. Thank you for entrusting me and keeping me grounded when I was bouncing off the satellites.
Also I need to send some love to John “Legend” Howard, Denise “D-Train” Howard, Art “White Version of my Dad” Lyons, Launa “Falana” Lyons, Bob “Soul on Ice” Bolen, and Mona “The Rock” Bolen. You guys always have my back. I appreciate your support, but moreso, your great friendship.
OK…here we go.
The Finished Art:
This is the 22nd time this event has been held. I swear it feels like 50 though. It is one of the signature mainly VW bus events in the country. There’s nothing like hundreds of buses and many hundreds of “bus people” gathering for 4 days! Much joy is had by all. They also raise much funds for charity and it really is a community effort.
