North American society may be moving away from unhealthily skinny body images, which is undoubtedly a noble cause, but there’s still no denying that these Benat Olea illustrations of stylishly skinny people are magnetic. With stick-thin anatomy evocative of Jack Skellington from ‘A Nightmare Before Christmas,’ these illustrations are hauntingly beautiful and badass at the same time. Olea’s penchant for the macabre also adds to the allure of these images, making his art a blend of tattoo-like imagery and Tim Burton fantasy.

Though some may read too deep into Benat Olea’s preferred rendering style, he obviously isn’t making a statement that these twig-like characters have ideal bodies. He’s simply producing images in a manner that’s indicative of his skills and imagination, and he succeeds at that task handily. Stats for Gaunt Girl Depictions Trending: Older & Warm
