A couple of great illustrations by Zach Johnsen, an Illustrator, Art director and Graphic Designer based in Portland, Oregan. Most of his work is pen & ink, water color and mixed works on paper. I absolutely love the tension in his drawings.
Zach focuses on the more ignored side of life – on the sides of people and places that visitors rarely see. In Zach’s world, most of the people have obvious human/animal hybrids that can’t be hidden. The corrupt politican is a hideous beast wielding an ax and smoking a cigar. The hollywood actress is a washed-up, half rat w/ open sores surrounded by a mob of rabid birds. The family portrait is a gaggle of jellydrop characters and mutated fish creatures.
