Sophie Varela’s motorcycle illustrations are badass and elegant at the same time.

Sophie combines fine details in pen with awesome watercolor shading and coloring for very realistic drawings of motorcycles. She surrounds them with a bouquet of gorgeous flowers.

“My name is Sophie Varela. I am a French illustrator, art director, and painter based in Paris. Since 2004, I have worked as a Freelancer in a range of fields including fashion illustration, publishing, editorial, luxury or music industries. For my personal art, I have developed a style of contemporary romantic paintings. Feminine, elegant, sexy, I seek to create an original and aesthetic universe where strong beauties and nature are the heroes.

Sophie says the first time she got excited about motorcycles was watching the “C’mon Everybody” video featuring Sid Vicious on a Honda CB.
