Travelling in Technicolor

I noticed a link to a report on Pakistan's Truck Art  on the BBC web this morning and fell in love with the color, design and sheer personal poetry and celebration in these adornments.  I have seen decorated trucks and buses on my travels but nothing in this league.   These images came from some fascinating articles on this art in thewondrous, pakistaniat and weburbanist.  Looks like one of their sources was this great flickr collection.

wow... I'm in the middle of buying an old Airstream trailer that needs lots of love and a paint job... these are very inspiring... colour wise :)
