Last June, Google put the call out to California artists to come up with drawings that fit the theme, “my community, my neighbors.” Most of the doodles are “cartoony” in nature, matching the feel of the Google car, featuring birds on a wire, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and other iconic California scenes.

The first batch of decorated cars are in the San Francisco Bay area but the contest was so successful that Google will expand it next in Austin, Texas. Danielle Dufayet of San Jose, California – the artist who contributed the piece with the birds on a wire – said, “A community is made up of individuals who communicate with one another. In my piece, Talk of the Town, the birds epitomize the connection we all share in communicating about things that matter to us where we live.”
