Ian Macarthur is one talented guy who clearly spends a lot of time honing his artistic craft.

The featured Ian Macarthur artworks in the gallery showcase surreal, fantastical, and at times, cartoon-like themes. What's interesting about the details he puts in the animals he draws is that they look like they've had some skin art done. Macarthur creates this effect by highlighting aspects of their bodies with black ink in colorless drawings. Some of his tattoo influences include Americana-style sparrows and the incorporation of Polynesian ink.

In addition to his personal portfolio, Ian Macarthur has worked for big clients such as Nike and MTV Playground. More of his work can be seen on his personal website.
