It's Time to Design Your Very Own Van Mural For VW's New Cargo Van

We’re all (well, me, and maybe Patrick) pretty excited about VW’s announcement of their new I.D. Buzz Cargo van concept, because it’s the most likely candidate to re-spawn the custom van craze of the 1970s. As you know, custom vans means airbrushed murals, so now’s the time to start planning yours.

To help you plan, I’m giving you this blank image of the new van, along with a bunch of PNG-format elements you can slap on the van there to plan out your mural. I’m going to try and include the staple images of the genre (wizards and shit, space stuff, sexy mythical whatevers) to give you a good basic toolbox to start with, but please feel free to grab your own images as well.

Have at it! Stick whatever you come up with in the comments! I can’t wait to see what you make; I’ll lean on VW to make the best ones of these into factory options. Wish me luck.
