I came accross a website recently and just had to tell you all about it. It’s called Kai Art International (K.A.I). It’s not apparent from the name, but this site has some fabulous hand drawn artwork of various iconic cars. Obviously I was attracted to the Porsche section and I have to say it’s a pleasure to see. Shin Yoshikawa who pens these beautify designs is obviously a very talented man.
The drawings are all cutaway representations of Porsches in black ink. No assistance from photoshop or other clever PC based software involved here. Shin has captured the beauty of a number of Porsche models and carefully uncovered the inner workings of the car by peeling back layers of the Porsches skin. The detail is amazing.
Look at the Porsche 935 or “Moby Dick”.
Since discovering his website, I have exchanged a few emails with Shin. He is a very nice chap and seems to be able to find the time to chat despite a very busy schedule. He has agreed to let me publish a few examples of his work on my blog. Here’s a little video movie of his work.
