About Classic Lines Artist - Mike Harbar
Classic Lines Artist - Mike Harbar is English born and bred and has a passion for drawing cars, boats and planes. With over 25 years experience as a freelance illustrator, he has drawn the lot from AC Cobra to Zagato. Since emigrating to Australia in 2000 Mike now lives on the Mornington Peninsula, continuing his work illustrating for hundreds of happy clients world-wide, producing commissioned artwork for magazines, car specialists, club events and private enthusiasts.
Trained as an industrial designer, Mike understands the basic engineering principals to the artistic flowing lines. This is very apparent when you see the accuracy and his attention to detail he can achieve just by using his magic lead pencils and watercolour. Also multi skills in graphics, printing and picturing framing.
As you look at each artwork, keep an eye out for Mike's trademark - a church spire hidden in the detail. Like Cuneo's mouse and "Where's Wally", the spire adds a bit of fun to each work, and symbolises Mike's love of the English countryside and Christian faith. Happy hunting!

• logo designs
• T-shirt and clothing designs
