Luca Mantovanelli's Portraits

Illustration // Saturday, December 15, 2012
Luca Mantovanelli is a young Italian architect and illustrator. His mixed media illustrated portraits combine a bizarre duo of images of male youth and colored, exotic birds. There is a strange eroticism to his images that I'm not quite sure how to place, but somehow the elements in his portraits complement each other.

Pretty things, disturbing things, stuff and things, nice horseys, pandas, lollipops and crisps and lips and rocket ships and pirate radios. She is inspired by nature and stories, lyrics and poetry, dreams and oddities and overheard conversations. If she didn't draw pictures she would chase storms and spot planes.

Gildebeest: Octopi Process

Illustration // Friday, December 14, 2012
'After pencilling to a degree that I pretty much know what everything looks like, I start inking with copic sketch pens. I use copic everything, really. At this point I am ironing out all the details - my pencil work tends to be sketchy and filled with little hairy construction lines, so inking is basically a decision-making process where I choose the exact line I want and fill in details of the solid blacks, cleaning everything up, sometimes penning in spontaneous additions...'
