Red Hot Poppin' Pepper...A Mini Inspired by My #Juke!

Inspired by my cayenne pepper 
 Juke 
 I wanted to create a Pop Art Mini that I could use for some vinyl accents to add to the car for an extra "POP" and a colorful nickname...which resulted in a spicy little guy that I'm calling 
"PoP Pepper" 
(I've never had the urge to name my car before, but I guess there's a first time for everything...good, bad, or a silly it's just one of those things!)
And I thought "PoP" needed a big eye traveling companion so a spicy red haired cutie was added to the final mix.  Here's a look at the finished sketch on my desk and a peek back from beginning to end.

Wishing you a day of red hot fun in the sun!

How cute! I love the Juke. I almost bought one a couple months ago but it rode a little rough for me (slipped disk in neck so I need smooooth) so I bought a Rogue instead.

Pop Pepper id rather col and that car looks suitably sporty to be worthy of such a name... the only car I know that is named is one of my father's cars and we call it cobwebs because he gets it out and uses it so rarely... I like pop pepper much more xx
