The first job I remember wanting to do was bus driver. I was in love with the school bus, driven by Monsieur Leroy. It was a beautiful machine very much like this one.

So here I am now, dreaming of operating my own bus company.

I tried to do it in the lovely style of the 60's ads. It's rushed, and it's the last pixel I'll do in the next weeks, other than finishing old stuff.

The palette was actually more friendly than I first thought.

Car = short for autocar (coach) also used for school bus (car scolaire).


Update: new preview; layer dump here.

I would totally hang a poster of this in my kitchen. It's so bright and cheery. <3

Love the colors and the way the they either overlap or don't quite fill a lot of the outlines. This could still benefit from some more consisent and smoother AA, however.

If you have a filthy, filthy mind, the preview image looks slightly obscene 


...anyhow. Great work as usual. I love that old ad style and you captured it really well.

very nice! u nailed that style quite well...  i think it  looks very french aswell, dunno why tho... anyway i think it could need some cleaning like aa and stuff  but i think thats mainly because the palette failed, still some lines could be less jagged imo

 I love the use of dark outlines around the focus of the picture only. The words fit in extremely well and the composition just feels right. Lots of little details but not overcrowded. Nice work!
