Fans of literature and realistic portraiture will no doubt enjoy these jaw-dropping Michael Hoeweler renderings. Rather than simply illustrating celebrities of the modern era, Hoeweler has drawn and painted some of the most brilliant writers in Western literature for TIME Magazine, introducing the faces of witty wordsmiths and prophetic visionaries to a new generation of readers.

Michael Hoeweler rendered these remarkably accurate images using a pen for outlining and sumi ink to define value. George Orwell, Christopher Hitchens, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Mark Twain are among the people he illustrated for TIME Magazine. The New York-based artist has also drawn noteworthy images of Adam Scott from Parks and Recreation, famed photographer Ryan McGinley and renowned chef Sean Brock for GQ Magazine. It's easy to see why his work is so high in demand.
