These amazing hand rendered sketches on old discarded envelopes caught the eye of Stylesight’s Graphic team recently.
Artist Mark Powell from London, has been hand sketching these beautiful ‘if not haunting’ ballpoint pen artworks over the last year or so. Powell’s drawings are incredibly detailed and are individually enhanced with random hand written postal addresses and mail stamp embellishments.
Studied sketch work is definitely trending within apparel graphics at the moment. The Graphic team saw a wealth of hand drawn visuals at both Bread & Butter and Bright trade shows in Berlin last week.
