Growing up in LA, the son of an aerospace engineer, Midget racer and racing fanatic, David Kimble formed an affection for all things automobile at an early age. This obsession combined with a skill in drawing led David to the study of drafting and technical illustration at the Academy of Technical Arts. Word of Kimble’s artistic talent and love of racing spread quickly through southern California race shops and eventually reached Jerry Titus, then technical editor of Sports Car Graphic magazine. While David was already working as a contractor at North American Aviation, assigned to the Apollo space program, the artistic beginnings of a career was born. Requests for his art from Road & Track led David to establish his own business in 1976, David Kimble Illustration. David’s works have been featured in a wide variety of major magazines, and his style has attracted a dedicated following.Review:
