Line work can become a powerful tool in the hands of illustrators. By thickening strokes “closer” to the viewer, artists create depth. Other times, repetitive line art is used to form intricate patterns. In Illustration, lines are often part of a bigger system, but what if this one became the most important element? Brighton based artist Will Scobie uses line work as his primary means of communication. His style is simple, crisp, and balanced, using vector lines to create elaborate pictograms. His designs feel like mazes, making one’s eye follow each line in wonder to where they will end. Each line feels like a journey — simply brilliant! Check out some of Will’s work down below or go to his website for more awesomeness.
