Illustrations by Erik Jones

Erik Jones is a traditional artist who makes great illustrations. You should really check out his portfolio for more of his pieces. These illustrations are painted, which just amazes me. It looks like so much like graphic art but it is not. The colors are so minimal and complimentary. It is just a nice and fresh look for illustration. I love the whole screen printed look used for these paintings. The flow of hair in the illustration at the bottom really shows motion and flow throughout the work. I like how the artist incorporated the tattoos making it an art within itself, giving the women more colors and contrast. I like the colors chosen in the illustration to the left, they really pop off the background and make the work look very contemporary.
