Artist Rik Reimert has drawn these stunning illustrations with just some paper and ink. Reimert uses a series of lines and hashmarks from light to dark, with Rotring Rapidographs—a variety of technical writing devices that provide consistent ink flow. The artist begins with pencil and then fills in the lines with his pens that vary in thickness from 0.2 to 0.8mm tips. Most of the drawings take an average of 6 to 8 hours to complete and feature famous celebrities like Benicio Del Toro, Bruce Willis, and Jaime Foxx.
Reimert says he chooses ink and paper because “Analog, that’s my thing. From music to photographs to art. Yes, of course we use computers and cellphones, but isn’t it great to put on a record on your turntable on a Sunday morning and just enjoy the cracks in the music and the great artwork on the cover?“
A selection of the illustrations have been turned into a book which can be purchased here.
