Automotive Technical Illustrations, Drawings and Artwork

Thanks to the generous help of our contributing artists we have been able to present this gallery highlighting the collective works from several of the world's leading automotive illustrators, automotive artists and technical illustrators. Their iconic cutaway renderings, drawings, pencil sketches, realist paintings and airbrush art focuses on notable sports cars, race cars and all types of machinery.

These legendary artists are part of an elite group that were led by pioneers such as James A. Allington, Serge Bellu, Bruno Betti, Jean Jacques Francois, Shin Yoshikawa, Herbert Schlenzig, Theo Page, and others. Throughout my 30+ years in the automotive field I have had the distinct pleasure of working with, and getting to know these talented individuals. I hope you enjoy their work.
