It’s hard not to be in awe of these detailed Ross McEwan illustrations of female profiles. The beautiful faces themselves are enough to warrant viewers’ attention, but McEwan also integrates floral motifs into each subject’s hair, elevating the sophistication and overall appeal of his work. His choice of rendering each piece with limited colors also creates a somber atmosphere and, when coupled with the various expressions on each woman’s face, viewers can’t help but conjure sordid narratives to go along with each illustration.
