Guy from Duffel (BE) (1961)

Guy from Duffel in Belgium made some clip art (pin up) cartoons for the Austin Eight Register. in the past.

Guy is disabled and spends hours making automotive pin up clip art. He uses his own specific style.

After sending Guy some images from brochures etc, he send some Austin Eight related (pin up) clip art in return. Also he made some Christmas greetings clip art. I included those as well in this section

Thanks for making these for the Austin Eight register Guy.

More of Guy's work is found here.
