Barcelona-based illustrator and artist Chamo San has created an inventive and original series of drawings entitled 'The Moleskine Series,' which highlights a series of graphic illustrations in the popular leather notebooks.

Moleskine is a centuries-old European notebook company with an impressive collection of patrons. Noted Moleskine users include Oscar Wilde, Ernest Hemingway, Vincent van Gogh, and Pablo Picasso, amongst others.

The Chamo San 'Moleskine Series' Illustrations vary from action-like surrealist images of a bear mid-bite to celebratory images of a young athlete popping champagne to pensive shots of a man recovering from a vicious knee injury. The only constant in all of these images (besides the fact that they take place in a Moleskine) is Chamo San's rich attention to detail. His illustrations turn an average notebook into a memorable and wonderful art canvas, effectively adding Chamo San to the name of skilled artists whose work have graced the Moleskine pages.
