David Kao


When David was a little kid, his father brought him to an auto shop to pick up their car. David stared and wondered the complexity of the mechanical parts underneath the car, he immediately fell in love with cars. David started drawing cars when he was 3 years old and continued to improve his drawing skills ever since. Back in the day, his drawings were just few simple lines and circles. David’s drawing skills are self taught through countless of trial and error, developing a set of techniques through the years. It was a endless learning process, because he is never satisfied with his drawings. It wasn’t until when David is 19 years old. David started working on realism. He started by paying attention to reflection, small details, shading techniques, blending techniques, etc. Now he is closer to making his drawing photo-realistic due to his dedication and passion for drawing cars. Today, David still has strong passion for drawings and love for cars . However, as he graduated from UC Merced school and started his working life, Now he manages two companies and several brands in the US. He wants to continue to create more drawings. We sure will see more drawings or beautiful products in the future from David.

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.
