The planning and patience required to make these Carne Griffiths illustrations is something most people probably don't and will never have. After all, it seems as though an unexpected water paint splatter or a misplaced pen stroke can easily ruin the efforts of hours of work. But Carne Griffiths is just the kind of master artist to be able to execute these beautiful portraits with ease, and I think it's pretty unanimous among viewers that these illustrations are ridiculously good.

Carne Griffiths is a UK-based illustrator and he specializes in distilling faces out of chaotic pen scribbles and runny water color blots.

Implications - Consumers are gravitating towards fine arts illustrations more so than digital artwork as mainstream media has become over saturated with computer-generated graphics. As such, corporations looking to use illustrations in promotional campaigns may consider the use of analog art over digital.
