In a drawing style reminiscent of the whorl patterns found in van Gogh paintings, artist Nicolas Jolly draws using a kind of crosshatcing that looks like the patterns of fingerprints. The thousands of tiny black ink lines vary in length, direction, and thickness to create landscapes, portraits, and other scenes that seem to be pulsing with energy. You can see many of his drawings close-up in his Fingerprints gallery and several are available as prints over on Society6. (via Behance)
