Inspiration: Stephane Tartelin

I'm loving Stephane Tartelin's beautiful illustrations. A Paris based graphic designer and illustrator, his work has a sharp, scratchy quality, full of angles and shadows yet lightweight and bright.

This rough, sketchy style is something I have always loved, mostly because it often looks easy to replicate but is really hard to do! If I tried to draw a pretty lady like the one above she would look like a malformed five year old, yet this girl looks tough, complicated, apprehensive and bored all at once.
