Mobydick smallThis is what happens when an incredibly talented artist turns their attention to the golden years of racing.

What you can see here is the amazing work of Miha Furlan, a gifted artist dedicated to bringing great moments of motorsport history back to life through crayons, markers, watercolor, acrylics and graphite. There are so many fantastic pieces available from this artist that we’ve decided to break them up and run a handful of collections, the first being a celebration of Porsche racing icons.

We’ve included a short description of each picture as dictated directly by the artist. Enjoy.
