Engraving style, a detailed work.

Each time I find myself in front of an engraving, I can't help but follow with my eyes all those lines that, put end to end, reveal volume, hollows, shadows and lights. I am fascinated by their number and their meticulousness and I never tire of looking for the smallest hidden details. I believe that this is what convinced me to choose this illustrative style. In my humble scale and my interpretation of course. If you also like old engravings, feel free to look at my instagram story, I often repost accounts where it is the focus.

Engraving style, a long process.

Making so many strokes involves a long and sometimes painful process. It is not uncommon for me to end a day of drawing with my hand tense, filled with the electricity of having drawn so much, but the result is (almost^^) always worth it. The result is complex and fascinating illustrations where you like to lose your eyes and the notion of time.
