Pencil Art Heroes – Amazing F1 Drawings

Submitted by on August 1, 2014

F1 Drawings - SchumacherThe talent some people possess is truly astounding. These are the best F1 drawings we’ve ever seen.

Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the world of Daniel Yates – a place where cameras are discarded, and color not needed. A realm where graphite, charcoal and pencil meet paper, and magic happens.

We stumbled across the incredible work of Daniel Yates via his Facebook page, and knew immediately that we just had to share his talents with our little world. In this collection, he’s taken the time to beautifully sketch seven of the most loved men to ever spend time behind the wheel of a Formula 1 racing car. We can’t pick a favorite.

If you enjoy Daniel’s work, be sure to take a look at a couple of the other retro motorsport related artists we’ve featured on our page in the past, using different mediums altogether!
