I ran across the ink drawings of shit hot talented Jonathan bergeron a week or so back while surfing around FFFFound and low and behold in between hot hipster chicks with big boobs and tattoos was some sincerely awesome pen and ink drawings. You can see lots more at his Behance-folio. Guy’s got skills. Like ‘hand’ skills.

Straight up weird but fascinating illustrations are pouring from the hand of Tim Enthoven including the above beer drinking hipster dad intellectuals. It’s hard to gather if Enthoven has a real point of view but he does have the chops to put out some curious imagery.

Australian illustrator Ben Brown shreds the gnar with his pen producing old school 80′s skate punk style illustrations that often incorporate kick ass skulls and zombies. How can you not love him for keeping it genuinely old school?

Artist and illustrator Silene Audibert has some interesting nature-inspired pen and ink drawings posted to fuel your creative inspiration. They kind of remind me of magic root the little girl hides under her mother’s bed in the movie Pan’s Labyrinth.

Tim Hon Hung Lee got in touch today to let me know he had updated his portfolio with some new works. His line work is really amazing. That is no easy task to replicate with a pen.

Daniel J Diggle has some really amazingly detailed illustration work on display in his Flickr-folio. What I appreciate most is seeing his work through this process from pencil to pen to finished print. He also has a website here where you can learn and see a little more.

bfreeone.jpg

Merijn Hos (1978, Enschede, NL) who is also known under his alias Bfree, is an Artist and
Illustrator from Utrecht, the Netherlands. He graduated in 2004 from the Utrecht School of
Visual Arts with a B.F.A in Illustration.

Since then he divides his time working 50 percent as an Illustrator working on commercial
projects while the other 50 percent of his time is dedicated to his own projects such as ex-
hibitions and independent publishing.

The main characteristics in his work are at first sight long-legged characters with high-heel
shoes and big hairdo and freckles, a lot of colours and abstract psycadelic landscapes.
But when it comes to content, you will find a lot of elements such as ghosts, life and death,
friendly and cute expressions and hidden messages.

A lot of the work reflects on issues in todays society and everyday interaction between peo-
ple in terms of escapism, organised confusion and friendship and loyalty.”

Call me crazy but I guess I am kind of a fan of ‘long-legged characters with high-heel
shoes and big hairdo and freckles, a lot of colours and abstract psycadelic landscapes’. I mean seriously, who isn’t?
