Alec Issigonis

Soon after WWII, England found itself faced with the Suez Canal crisis. The folks at the Morris company went to automobile designer Alec Issigonis and said, “Hey homie, big cars are costing us a f*ck ton of cash ā€“ can you do something about that?”

Thus, the MINI was born! To make more interior room, Alec pushed the wheels all the way to the corners of the vehicle and turned the engine sideways.

Note: I took a little longer than a minute because I decided to add the car. This sketch took closer to five minutes to complete today ā€“ just keepin’ it real with ya’ll.

  1. You draw car in thirty seconds!

  2. Okay, now your drawing Mini’s. The time has come for you to get your purple Mini. You’ve come a long way baby!

  3. Hey, the DeLorean is going to be back off the American assembly lines next year! No BS! A possible subject for one of your next sketches, and there’s a lot of backstory for you to have all kinds of fun with !!! (Supermodel girlfriend, cocaine, embezzlement, money-mismanagement… you know, typical 80’s misbehavior!)
