I gotta say that the more Lain Macarthur produces, the more I love his work. It just keeps getting better and better. He’s still very young too which points toward a long and productive career as an illustrator. His recent series inspired by the movie Black Swan is very well rendered but maintains a grit that makes the imagery accessibly artistic. Good stuff.
New and totally awesome drawings from Iain Macarthur are now in his Behance-folio. Loving what he has done recently. It’s time to pick up the pencil again.
Iain Macarthur graduated in 2008 from Swindon College after completing a study in illustration and has since been filling his Behance-folio with some well crafted ‘collage’ pen, ink and graphite drawings. There is some great contrast happening within the drawings and there is a great balance between flat color and softer gradients. They are definitely fun to look at and I could imagine them being quite striking when hung on a wall in a group. The high school punk in me is still always a sucker for skulls.
