Andy Sloan - autoartzuk

My name is Andy Sloan, otherwise known as AutoArtz. I am an automotive design engineer and artist. I create hand-drawn artwork of classic and sports cars using traditional techniques, completed using a mixture of line drawing, marker pen and pastel. From an early age I wanted to be a car designer, and in the late 90's secured a place studying Transport Design at university, where I learned the illustration techniques used by car designers. After finishing university I embarked on a career in engineering and soon forgot about my art and design background and love of drawing cars. Most of my career in engineering was based at Aston Martin, where I was lucky to have worked on cars including the DB11, Vantage, DBS and forthcoming DBX and Vantage Volante. I have also worked at Jaguar Land Rover and Nissan. I started drawing cars again after struggling to come up with ideas for a gift for a friend’s 40th, ultimately drawing three of his cars, past and present. After dusting off my old markers and ellipse guides, I soon fell in love with creating automotive art again, and I have since completed several commissions of classic and modern sports cars. If you want to know more or would like to commission artwork of your favourite classic car or sports car please get in touch.

Support Draw to Drive

Dear friends,

when we started this journey, our only goal was to build a small community of octane art lovers. Your passion made Draw to Drive community grow beyond our expectations. As you probably know Draw to Drive is a project developed, maintained and financed by team of three co-founders. With the constant growth of the community, our operating costs grew as well, together with the time needed for maintaining the current platform. Next to that, new features had to take a back seat.

We came to a point when we have to ask for your support to develop new features and keep the platform running. We have enabled a donate functionality so, if you want, you can now support us financially to build a better platform and attract more automotive enthusiasts to our community. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
