Martin Squires has an obsession with motor powered transport. A major part of his practise is sketching at motoring events. The results of a days or weekends sketching then form part of a report that gets posted on his ever growing blog and a regular article in ‘the classic motorcycle magazine’.
This obsession started through a family connection with Morgan Three Wheelers and various British Motorcycles. Combining this obsession with a natural talent for sketching and painting Martin has developed a distinctive style which has evolved through a combination of reportage sketching and studio work.
Martin has a monthly column in ‘The Classic Motorcycle’ called ‘Sketchbook Travels’ which features motorcycle sketches and writing.
