I remember the first time I came across the drawing of the eye-less veiled ladies featured in this article on Pinterest. It was love at first sight, and I immediately tracked down the artist. The artist turned out to be illustrator and tattoo artist Anders Røkkum from Norway, and with that discovery came a whole portfolio filled with the most amazing drawings.
I love how dark and spooky Anders’ illustrations are. By removing facial features like the eyes or giving his subjects a veil to cover up their body Anders gives the works a sense of mystery and darkness, the amazing detail and strong contrast gives the pieces their unique appeal. If you look at refined line-work it might not surprise you Anders is a tattoo artist as well, you can find examples of his tattoo work on his Facebook page. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading! What do you think of Anders’ work?
