Get Your Kicks On Route 66

 Tonight I'm working on some Route 66 artwork. I went out on the Route, just around Pontiac, and got revved up to illustrate the road.
 This barn is just north of Pontiac, IL. It's a great old advertising piece.
 Here I am at the old state police headquarters. There is a new sculpture depicting a motorcycle cop. There are information plaques that tell about the headquarters and the history of the police on the Route.
 The building is a modern one (check out all that glass block!), and when viewed from the air, it's in the shape of a pistol.
One of the information stations has a passport station on it. These are so great! They are raised metal and you can lay a paper over it and get a nice rubbing to paste into a scrapbook or album. It makes a neat keepsake.

How neat!! I think it's it's so cool that you live near route 66. One day I want to drive the whole stretch and see it all.
