Expressive illustrations by Damien Florebert Cuypers

A couple weeks back I was browsing around YCN and admiring the really nice illustrations they have on their Case Studies page. This led me to discover Damien Cuypers, an illustrator who’s style I’m completely jealous of. There’s an expressiveness to his work. His lines are quick and rough, almost naive seeming, but there’s definitely purpose behind each one of them.

The images above ate from a series of two minute portraits he did at the Frieze Art Fair for NOWNESS. There’s something genius to me about John Baldessari’s green pickle-esque nose. If you enjoy his illustrations you should also check out this series of sketches he did for London Fashion Week over on T Magazine. A lot like the pieces above but with a fashion edge.
