Michael Howard is a twenty-four year old London illustrator, blogger and writer. Working under the alias NVM Illustration, he says his inspiration comes from books, half heard conversations, self reflection and cultural/social "abnormalities." His gritty drawings are subtly erotic, using minimal accent colors in his subject's tattoos, knuckles, lips etc. Often illustrated on soft, ivory pressed paper, Michael's loose drawing style does not detract from the intense emotion emanating from each of his works.
