the folks at petersen automotive museum recently invited me to illustrate another exhibit poster for them.
i wedged in a visit to the museum during my LA trip last year, and, wow. even to someone like me (who admittedly doesn’t know the difference between a carburetor and a catalytic convertor) this place is something special. spanning an entire city block, petersen houses a wide array of engaging/entertaining/educational auto-themed exhibits for kids of all ages.
last year’s offerings included a hot wheels room (complete with every body-type ever produced and some killer concept cars) and an amazing display of movie-used vehicles (’89 batmobile!). add in a a kick-ass gift shop, it’s definitely worth a stop when you’re in the neighborhood.
