Digital artist and illustrator Florian Nicolle (previously here and here) blends layers of newsprint, watercolor, pencil, and digital painting to create rich, frenetic portraits that seem to fly off the canvas. Over the past few years, Nicolle has been tapped by some of the world’s largest brands including Nike, Adobe, Warner Brothers, and ESPN, but still finds time for personal work. You can explore more on Behance and on his website.
