Lee Misenheimer

Illustration // Thursday, February 16, 2012
Graduating from East Carolina University School of Art in 1994, Lee Misenheimer's intensely detailed illustrations are indicative of his admitted "repetitive line syndrome," compelling him to obsessively build up layers and layers of intricate linework.

Iain Macarthur
