Cadillac Art by the late Stephen Nadon

Stephen was a fan of the Cadillac V-16 and Eldorado models in general, and the Eldorado Brougham
in particular. He supplied the Database regularly with his B&W pen and ink sketches; he certainly
deserves a place in the "Cadillac Art" gallery.  Stephen lived in London, Ontario, Canada

Cadillac Art by Christopher Parent

AR49INK.JPG (5960 bytes)
This is an 11x17” print of a pen and ink drawing of a beautiful 1949 Cadillac Series 62 by Northwest artist Christopher Parent. It is an example of  pointillism, using the stippling technique (a series of very tiny lines and dots of ink) which is very time consuming but the resulting detail is amazing

Club, Inc. (CLC)  and also an automotive illustrator.  Please check out

Cadillac Art by Paul Zanetti

Paul was born in 1961. He started cartooning at age nine, drawing the teachers in school ...and getting kicked out of class. He knew then that cartooning was his future. At age 18 he was appointed editorial cartoonist for the Sydney Daily Telegraph. He was Australia's youngest editorial cartoonist.  Today he is independently syndicating cartoons throughout Australia and overseas.

When he saw his first Cadillac (a '59 Eldorado Biarritz!) it was love at first sight and has been a lifetime love affair. Paul hs owned a number of collectible Cadillacs since the late 1980s.

His hobbies include Michelle, the children, architecture, restoring Cadillacs, locating and restoring mid-20th century modern furniture, collecting and landscaping cacti and succulents.

1959 Eldorado Barritz
Flying saucer  has landed on the forecourt of a Cadillac
dealership; trumpet-nosed extraterrestrial being
is saying to the vendor:  I need a new model

[unfortunately, space restrictions prevent showing the cartoon in full size;
reduced size and lower resolution do not allow for capture all the artist's pen strokes]

Paul is a well-known Australian cartoonist. And, yes,
he does drive a 1959 Eldorado Biarritz.  Gita and I are
honored to have been guests of Paul and his lovely wife, Michelle,
during our extended Australian tour in March-April, 2005
