Envelope Drawings by Mark Powell

January 7, 2012

Christopher Jobson

London-based artist Mark Powell has chosen the backs of old envelopes as a canvas for these delicately rendered portraits of the elderly, using nothing more than a standard Bic Biro pen to create the delicate folds and wrinkles of their skin. I love everything about these. See much more of his work here and he sells a number of art prints over on Society6. If you liked this also check out the photography of Lee Jeffries.
