Ric Ocasek of The CarsÂ tells Billboard magazine that he has an upcoming art exhibit and plans on doing more painting in the future. ”My past art experience, I was a draftsman for a year once, and an assistant wallpaper art director guy for a year, this was like 18-19. I always drew, it was always meditative. But what I want to do with these drawings is blow ‘em up on canvases and paint them. I’ve done shows, but those were the actual drawings, 17 or 24 inches high.
