Latvian artist Alex Konahin spent two weeks drawing this gorgeous skull for clothing company Heretics using little more than black ink and a few dip pens (and probably a few decades of artistic experience). Konahin’s similarly meticulous line art was making the rounds on a number of blogs earlier this week. See much more over on Behance.

I personally don’t have any tattoos but feel with near certainty that if I ever get one it will involve the added price of a plane ticket to Berlin to visit artist Peter Aurisch (nsfw). Using a lovely mix of geometric lines that mix with bold colors and assorted lifeforms, his work is so unlike anything I’ve ever seen in a tattoo. You can see much more recent work on his Facebook page (also slightly nsfw). (via visual news, blog nova central)

I’m in love with these gorgeous works by Madrid-based illustrator Gabriel Moreno that intertwine the lives of individuals and animals through endless bands of line work. Almost all of the pieces above are available as prints, and you can follow his ongoing works via Facebook. (via devid sketchbook)

I’m loving these figurative sketchbook illustrations created around the forms of pressed leaves. They showed up in the Tumblr of the Sketching Backpacker who has some serious chops when it comes to documenting their travels using paint, collage, pencil, or anything else available, I definitely recommend getting lost for a moment.

I’ve been wanting to post the work of Michigan-based book artist Thomas Allen for well over a year and was thrilled to see some recently posted works. Allen creates vivid illustrations using figures cut and folded from old books. If you haven’t seen some of his earlier pieces made from vintage pulp fiction novels, head on over to Foley Gallery for a real treat. (via super punch)

Artist Bovey Lee hand cuts wonderfully detailed illustrations into Chinese rice paper creating nearly weightless artworks that seem to buzz with fantastical narratives. Born in Hong Kong, Lee now lives and works in Pittsburgh and you can see much more of her work here. Incredible work. (via everyday frustone)

Brooklyn based artist George Boorujy creates impossibly detailed ink paintings of North American birds and other animals, often pouring numerous photographs and visiting zoos where the animals are kept before embarking on a piece.

Boorujy challenges the viewer to confront both the animal and their preconceived notions about it. Through their gaze an interaction evolves with the wild that otherwise would have to be sought out or birthed from happenstance. However fleeting our exchanges with the wild are, an impression of their presence marks our memories. There is something mystical at play; a silent exchange that either moves us towards awareness or heightens our fear of the unknown.

George’s latest solo show, Blood Memory, opens at P.P.O.W. gallery in New York on March 15. (via the very nice davidsketchbook)
