I came across illustrator John Stortz’s work on Pinterest, and I absolutely adore his style, particularly his work in pen. Each piece is so intensely detailed, almost to a microscopic level. I normally find pointillism and its ilk to be very static and flattened, yet somehow he makes these tiny dots seem fluid and lively (particularly in his images of wildlife). And as usual, I’m drawn to the surrealism in the images, something that is present in his undulating portraits and his dreamy watercolors.
