Jenny Mörtsell

These portraits by Jenny Mörtsell are so simple and lovely! I love a good graphite rendering, and these really fit the bill in terms of being extremely believable and accurate while also having just enough stylized elements and roughness to draw you in. I especially love the parts where a little bit of the plain white background shows through or the sketch dissolves; it really plays with the idea of false depth so well. Jenny's Twin Shadows (who came to Brown for Spring Weekend this year!) illustration is also really great, and the clean precise lettering suits the piece perfectly. Plus, the clothes in all of these are just to die for. More work on her flickr, including some fun pieces with little splashes of color.
