Torn Fabric Flesh Sketches (UPDATE)

Illustrator PEZ Created Graphic Pencil Drawings

— November 4, 2013 — Art & Design
Illustrator, painter and graphic designer PEZ from Nantes, France created graphic pencil drawings where each character's flesh tears at the ends. Instead of blood and bone little pieces of fabric, graffiti and raw materials like wood can be seen in the shreds.

These incredible 3D sketches were drawn using only pencils yet they have so much depth and detail. The characters seem unharmed as their skin tears away by the power of their illustrator.

PEZ designed a previous series entitled 'The Distroy Series' where he drew cartoon characters with decomposing flesh. This is clearly his trademark for illustration. His characters go through a metamorphosis, not completely decomposing but becoming something new. In his previous series, Homer Simpson turned into a can of Duff.

In this series his characters turn into raw materials (string, pieces of fabric, wood) with no obvious purpose but the real beauty is in the texture that is so vibrant in his graphic pencil drawings.
Trend Themes
1. Graphic Pencil Drawings - The use of pencil for detailed 3D drawings with graphic texture creates an opportunity for new types of traditional art.
2. Decomposing Character Art - The trend of using graphic illustrations to create characters in a state of decay or metamorphosis offers opportunities to explore new themes in storytelling and entertainment media.
3. Raw Material Texture Art - The trend of using raw materials such as string, fabric, and wood for texture in graphic art allows for innovative and eco-friendly approaches to traditional art materials.
Industry Implications
1. Fine Arts - The use of traditional materials and techniques, such as pencil in combination with graphic design, can appeal to fine arts practitioners looking to experiment with new textures and forms.
2. Illustration and Graphic Design - The use of traditional and digital media to create graphic illustrations with a focus on texture and detail offers opportunities for new creative approaches in the field of illustration and graphic design.
3. Entertainment and Media - The trend of decomposing character art and metamorphosis in graphic design and illustration provides opportunities to explore new themes for storytelling and entertainment media, such as horror, sci-fi, and fantasy genres.
