Liqen on Paper

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 06, 2012
From the vast amount of work Liqen generates it’s obvious this guy spends much of his time sketching on paper. We really love when artists share their ideas, drafts, sketches, blue prints, etc. Be on the lookout for something big in a future printed Juxtapoz magazine!
