It's a long shot, but I was wondering if someone in the Leeds area of the UK would be interested in a trade?

I'm due to fly out for Thought Bubble on November 23rd and plan on driving into Scotland to visit Mark Millar. I wanted to rent an Alfa Romeo or something cool for the road, but the rental places nearby only have basic, boring cars. I'd be willing to trade art with someone who's willing to lend me a cool set of wheels! Or maybe a friend of yours has a cool car and you could steal his keys? If not, then I'll be doomed to a crappy Citroen or something. :)

I know it's a weird request, but I thought I'd give it a try. And YES, I know I've been watching too much Top Gear.

this just means you need to draw more things brits like! If my comics, American TV and Film watching has taught me anything you'll find this list useful!

Gams, bad teeth, Vorpal Rabbits, pipes, men in dresses, cigarettes but call them "fags", put "oy" "bullocks" and "cunt" into your dialogue, every now and then just shout "god save the queen," when your comedy stinks just say "you just don't get our humor" and maybe try and be polite and kind?

Pretty soon those brits will be loaning their cars to you!

I am envious of the guy who gets to tell the story that they let Sean Murphy borrow their sweet wheels for some art.

Believe me he does!Poor fella spent all his savings when he retired to buy it and restore the damn thing.At least in my hometown, there is some kind of club for the AR owners...I'm quite certain that if you indeed head down here, in any other big city the chance of seeing one is good, those rides are the sweethearts of most collectors :)

I wish I could see a all original Shelby Cobra, have never seen one before.I believe up north it's easy to spot one right?One of my favorite classic cars.

Ha! Nice thought but you can't just borrow a car in the UK Sean. If you're at the wheel of any vehicle in the UK you need to be insured to drive it. Typically private cars have 1-2 named drivers on the insurance which you can be added to but it'll cost a packet. Draconian laws mean if you get pulled over for anything and if you're uninsured the car gets seized and you'll just get dumped by the side of the road and left and if you have an accident you'll be well and truly in the shit.

I asked my UK friend if he possibly had one of those tucked in the garage ...but sadly its a Orange Nissan Micra.

It's sporty looking.

if you hit the D.C/Baltimore area I have a 1967 Impala, 640hp. Want a fun ride from BWI or Reagan to a show you let me know. Also a jacked up 2000 TJ Jeep Wrangler for those beautiful days, take out the rear seat and toss all your stuff in and throw on the bikini top and its all set!

also check out this, can pick up in Leeds.... [link]

Actually I lied. Forgot he'd gotten rid of it several years ago.

Montreal, but I doubt he'd lend it, actually. It's one of maybe three in the country or something like that. x:

If you do come here, I'll take you to eat or something instead, though.

Ha, ha, that is a strange request! Great to hear you're attending Thought Bubble though. I've got a table booked and this will be my third year attending, it really is a great show! Big fan of your work, would be great to say hello!

Even if it was 99% guaranteed to break down, we'd still take it. You know it's true.
