Wheels24 reader Shaarkir Marthinus shares his car drawings.

It seems freehand drawing is still preferred by modern artists. Inspired by Wheels24 reader Aqeel Kader's drawings, SHAAKIR MARTHINUS sent in some of his car art.

Shaakir Marthinus (29) from Macassar, near Somerset West in the Western Cape, had this to say:

"I've always loved drawing, especially cars. I do other work such as portraits and graffiti but cars are just great to draw.

Whatever I dream about I can put to paper... like my fantasy cars. I grew up loving all cars especially old Ford Escorts and Cortinas, Toyotas and many more. I love engines and the aesthetics of the motor vehicle itself.

As a school boy I assisted my neighbour with fixing cars, he taught me everything I know today. So I can only say I love the automobile."
