Artist Nicolas Delort lives and works in the suburbs of Paris where he creates evocative and imposing illustrations using ink and scratchboard. Each piece represents a moment from an unknown narrative leaving me filled with questions in the same way Chris van Allsburg’s The Mysteries of Harris Burdick leaves you curious of the circumstances behind each image. Delort is officially represented by Shannon Associates where you can see much more of his work and hopefully hire him to illustrate a graphic novel that I will wait in line to purchase. You can also follow him on Tumblr. (via behance)
Update: An earlier version of this post referred to these illustrations as being “Unknown Narratives” which is not entirely true. Indeed several of Delort’s ink drawings illustrate key moments from the Harry Potter series or Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. Thanks, all.
