Robert Flores completed this illustration based on last nights’ brochure. I like it!
Roberto created this thoughtful illustration. Many robrobhanks!
Roberto Flores shares his latest sketches. The top one is particularly fine!
He also gave some context on the MB canvas. He wrote,
“The Willys MB is the jeep of capitaine Raymond Dronne, commanding officer of “La Nueve” or 9th company III Battaillon Régiment de Marche du Tchad, 2nd Free French armored division Leclerc, or 2éme DB Leclerc. Most of the them of this elite unit were Spaniards ex-Republican soldiers, who fought as mounted infantry in half-tracks. The history behind these men was incredible. Some years ago I had the chance to write with some of them and at least visit one of them at France, were I realized the sacrifice they paid for a better world. This unit, “La Nueve”, called in Spanish because the number of Spanish volunteers soldiers who formed it, was the first to entered Paris in 24th August 1944, with several M4 medium Shermans from 501e RCC and another support vehicles (I think 3 half-tracks) from an engineer unit of the 2éme DB.”
You can see the Raymond Dronne character at the 2:09 mark in this film by Renné Clement!
Roberto shared these illustrations.
The first one (digital artwork) is a commissioned order cartoon for a customer at Quebec, Canada. It depicts a Canadian made Willys M38 jeep and his owner at the wheel (with his wife at co driver seat). This was offered as a birthday gift by a friend of him.
The second one, hand painted, is another Willys M38 jeep. This one was ordered by a customer at South Dakota. You could see the Mount Rushmore at background plus some details (birds, etc.) at the background. The customer appears at the wheel of his jeep with all his family.
And the third one (in black and white, also hand painted) was ordered as a birthday gift by a German customer and it was offered to his girlfriend. Both of them appear as his jeep and as background I draw a typical old French street.
Roberto Flores found his own jeep-in-a-crate!
Here’s a new illustration from Roberto Flores. Someone else will need to translate 🙂
Roberto wanted to share these illustrations. If you have ideas or suggestions for other drawings, drop him a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like your jeep or something else drawn, he takes commission orders as well.
Just as a reminder,
Ann, my kids, and I will be spending the week in the Seattle area. I do have some updates scheduled to appear, but they will be limited. The kids leave on the 26th and Ann and I will be back in Pasco by the 27th, so I imagine normal updates will begin at least by Dec. 28th, if not earlier.
Lawrence and his dogs once again dressed up for the holidays. Thanks for the photos!
I’m taking the evening off. I spent all weekend working on my book. The proof is ready to be printed. I ought to receive a couple proof copies next week so I can begin making final changes and correcting errors 🙂
Roberto shared his newest illustration that depicts a cat driving a jeep. My cats prefer to snuggle up in the seats and sleep (if they can get into the garage).
Roberto surprised me today with an illustration of me and Biscuit. How cool is that! Thanks so much! I’m even more handsome than I imagined, lol 😉
Roberto Flores wanted to share his latest illustrations. They were created for a French bimonthly magazine “4×4 Story”. Number, or issue 62, is related to how enjoying the summer with your jeep and its windshield folded down. Vive l´été!!! Number 63 is also related to summer and how to going to the beach…in a DUKW! Roberto didn’t have a chance to translate the comics into english, so brush up on your french 🙂
Roberto Flores forwarded his latest doodle. My doodles NEVER look that good 🙂
Her are a couple additional illustrations. Based on a quick look of Mr. Arifman’s projects, it appears they are well done.
Roberto writes, both have been commissioned by Mr. Firman A. Arifman, from Indonesia. He´s a Willys jeep restorer and his company is called “Reborn Workshop”, located at Yakarta. This is its Facebook website:
It’s the beginning of year seven for eWillys. Expect more jeeps, more adventures, and more great content!
Thanks to Roberto Flores for this Happy New Year’s illustration!
And to Alex at Tahiti Pacifique for this illustration:
