Lee Misenheimer's IllustrationsIllustration // Tuesday, 04 Sep 2012
Rich and intriguing monochromatic drawings by Lee Misenheimer, an incredible draftsman and artist and his work is as meticulous as it is beautiful. He folds together flawless forms and creates epic creatures out of simple line. 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. Misenheimer draws his inspiration from Japanese art, organic textures such as mushrooms, and eastern concepts of art, wind, and breath.
