We love it when artists challenge themselves to become better at what they do.
DZO Olivier’s Instinctive drawing project is a series of illustrations where the artist directly inks his drawings without having done any preliminary sketches. He begins with a basic idea and lets the drawing unfold organically. As he describes it, “no eraser. No pencil. Every mistake is an opportunity to create unexpected images.”
However, don’t let the spontaneous nature of his illustrations fool you into thinking that they were easy to create. As you can tell, each drawing is very detailed and, in fact, takes 4-6 hours to create.
Indeed, DZO Olivier’s work is very well thought out and beautiful to behold. Truly inspiring work from a very talented artist!
