Series: Vintage I own - dad's drawings

I think that after this post, the admiration I have for my father will be very evident. My siblings and I couldn't ask for a better role model. He is so good in all he does! You know, he is an engineer by formation, but, in his heart, he is truly an artist. And a very good one. He writes so very well, and his drawings are fantastic!




These 3 drawings are from his 1973 drawing pad. My mom took it apart and framed most of the drawings. I got these 3: a plane, a car (colored!) and a boat. They are all signed by him and I love them so much! Below is a close up of each one of the drawings. They are in need of some care since humidity made two of them wrinkle a bit. Do you have any tips for me about what to do? Please, let me know! :)
