    Default "Tan" M&M Remembered

    I grew up in the 1950s, so I remember the "tan" colored M&M. Also, in researching this, I learned that the "tan" color was actually the original color when M&M's first came in, I believe in 1941.

    Anyway, I wanted to do something with the subject in a drawing, but just drawing an M&M or one of the modern characters wasn't enough. So after drawing a "tan" M&M of my own making, I put it on the front of a 1960 Volkswagen street rod. The street rod was developed off of a drawing of a stock VW that I drew for my brother.

    I couldn't find an M&M character in the position and expression I wanted, so I had to make my own using an existing jpg file as a reference.

    Great work Ron. I especially like the violet one, to my eyes at least the colors seem to work well together.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Thank you all.

    Reworking old drawings, or ‘drawrings’ as they say in parts of GB, gets tiring. So, I got the urge to add something different.
