Colossal has found an amazing illustrator, Nicolas Delort, whose ink and scratchboard art just makes you stare. His artwork has a similar feel of the great masters like Harry Clarke who managed to capture the mood of their subject through shading and movement of the simple line. Honestly, making something feel so alive with the colors black and white is something of a feat in my book, but Nico seems to have no problems in creating magic from layers of textures. Go check out his site and then join me in hoping that he produces a physical sketchbook to touch and peruse, because I could stare at his work for hours. Another master in the making!
- thanks to Colossal for getting my jaw to hit the floor with Nico’s work
