i’m jealous of william hatch crosby

Ah yes… another day, another portrait series! Instead of being faceless {like yesterday’s featured work}, these vintage-looking people are covered in graphic, tribal, gouache markings. LOVE! This simple, yet striking series, titled Legends, is the work of Brooklyn based artist/illustrator William Hatch Crosby.

{Thank you so much to Rina for sending me a link to William’s work!}

    [...] Really random, odd and something I would totally want to hang on the wall. William Hatch Crosby via Honestly WTF. [...]

    have a look at rick hards’ work – he’s been doing that for decades now, but better. http://www.lisasettegallery.com/a-hards.htm

    I’ll second Jill’s comment. Rick Hards is the master of this genre. His paintings on tintypes are also quite exquisite.
