Came across some very interesting images online recently. Very fluid. Very loose. They are celebrity faces captured in the free-flowing lines of illustrator Vince Low, an artist based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
What I find so intriguing about this illustrations is the approach by Mr. Low. What seems almost random in drawing style – as if he just put the pencil tip on the page and let his hand run wild – was a very purposeful and well-planned out illustration… masked to look spontaneous and impromptu as to what celebrity face might develop as the graphite fills up the page.
But on further digging, I find a sample (below) that shows that so much of his initial sketching is just that…. scribbles. Brilliant!!!
