Ricardo Santos

His résumé includes covers and illustrations for international magazines such as American “Racer” or UK’s “Top Gear”, and world renowned brands like Ferrari, Nissan and Red Bull.

A former rally co-driver, Ricardo’s love for cars and motorsport has driven him to create illustrations of Formula 1 and rally cars from the 80’s and 90’s, all penned up on an irresistible retro style that remind us why we love racing: “I try to focus on the shape, the shadows, glows and colors of the cars to create simple but eye catching images, which I believe is a direct influence of my day job in newspapers and magazines trying to create simple and easy to understand work”, he said on an interview for Motorsportretro.com, with the guys over there mesmerized by his work.
