Jorge Roa obscures the faces of his subjects in his latest batch of illustrations, but even without being able to see their expressions, viewers get a good sense of each individual simply by looking at their body language and clothing. More importantly, audience’s focus is redirected towards the chic apparel each person is wearing, and the detail Roa puts into rendering knitted sweaters and fishnet stockings is simply jaw dropping.

Jorge Roa illustrates most images in ink and then colors his pictures digitally. His cool urban drawing style perfectly complements the eclectic fashion offerings in his visual creations, and viewers often find themselves pondering where they can purchase certain items rather than assessing Roa’s work as art. Roa is thus not only a talented illustrator, but also someone with impeccable taste.
