Architectural People - Ornate drawings by Sean Edward Whelan

Sean Edward Whelan's Architectural People

Sean Edward Whelan is an artist and illustrator living in Japan. (I think he grew up in Australia.) Many of his pencil illustrations are part of a series wherein human figures are drawn as masses of jumbled architecture. I guess you could also say that these are drawings of architecture en masse… specifically the mass of Homo sapiens. The faces of façades, the torsos of trabeated roofs and pagoda parts all give these drawings a rich level of detail that rewards closer inspection. The meticulous construction of these drawings also seems a wee bit obsessive. Not obsessive in the way you stalk the facebook profile of your ex, but the good kind. You can also stalk Sean Edward via Flickr.
