(I wonder if George R. R. Martin lives here.)
<The draftsmanship skills in London-based French illustrator, Thibaud Herem’s architectural illustrations is truly impressive. Extremely tightly knit hatching of vary degrees achieves a powerful spectrum of tone and texture. Closer inspection reveals the subtle range of blacks within large areas of shadow, which can sometimes be lost in monochrome drawings.
As a further demonstration of his skill, all his work is drawn by hand. It is all drafted out in pencil on a large scale before being finished in Indian ink. We think it definitely brings a warmer, more personable feel to the buildings, which would be lost if the odd hand shake in the lines were removed by using computer.
On his work, Thibaud says, “I draw architecture, from classic to modern using old techniques of representation such as etching. To draw, I use capillary pens with Indian ink and use no tools apart for pen for the inking process, keeping the line ‘from my hand’.”>
I don't know if he lives here but they are so very intricate!
