A play on portraiture - these Line Portraits are of real people to create something that is both minimalist and messy. Grayscale strokes are used on a bright background to make it pop. The human eye is relied upon to fill in the blanks of the face's structures, shades, and highlights to create a face out of organized mess. Different brush strokes and weights are used to highlight the portrait's eclectic nature, from frizzy hair strokes to smooth cheekbones. Featured are portraits of Mark Twain and Saul Bass.
