Inspiration: Envelope Drawings by Mark Powell
While catching up on a few of the blogs I read during my “lunch break” at work I came across the incredible artwork of Mark Powell. Powell’s most recent portrait series are created on vintage envelopes from around the world with only a Bic Biro ballpoint pen. The detail is astounding and to think that he created them with something as simple and cheap as a Bic pen is pretty remarkable.
The piece above he calls Quick Scribble – if my quick scribbles looked like this I’d quit my day job.
If I had to choose a favorite, it would be this last one. I love the way he incorporated the stamps into the image. I like this piece so much, I think I’m going to buy a print of it for my wall. To see more of his work check out his flickr page, and if you’d like to purchase a print of his art you can do so here.
