The master of pen and paper, Milanese artist and photographer Alessandro Paglia, has taken an extremely close look at some thoroughly sexy vintage automobiles.

The results of his hundreds of hours of painstaking pen work are as mesmerising as ever.

His latest feat is an exclusive series of one-of-a-kind artworks depicting iconic cars ranging from a 1937 Bugatti Atlantic Type 57 and a 1954 Mercedes 300 SL “Gullwing” to a 1970 Lamborghini Miura.

Working from his own photographs of the subjects, he creates a magical sense of 3D realism, reminiscent of, yet superior to, those very photos.

But, at the same time, the viewer is aware that he or she is looking not at a black-and-white photograph, but a pen-and-paper image created on heavy, grainy paper that is particularly suitable for depicting these classic subjects.

Together, the graininess of the paper, the sublime beauty of the vintage automobiles and the meticulous craftsmanship of the artist d evoke a sense of old-world class, dress-up times gone by, black-and-white films with dramatic stars.
