Shin Yoshikawa is a man of many talents. He’s a photojournalist, he’s a car collector and he plays the piano rather well, too. Perhaps his most remarkable skill, however, is his ability to see beneath the skin of a car and reproduce, by hand, pen and ink artwork of classic and modern cars. Yoshikawa has quite a body of work, and has drawn both street and racing cars from over 20 different manufacturers. His art appears at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles and the Blackhawk Museum in Danville, and Yoshikawa regularly attends art exhibitions from coast to coast.

Here are just a few examples of his amazing work. Here’s the best part: reproductions of his drawings are available (at very reasonable prices) through Kai Art International. If you’re like me, you probably don’t have the bank to put an original Ford GT40 in your garage; on the other hand, I can certainly spend $30.00 for an 18”x24” rendering. I even have the perfect spot on my office wall, and this GT40 won’t cost me a dime in insurance or upkeep.
