Artist Rik Reimert has an impressive array of celebrity portraits on his website. The simplicity of his crosshatch pen and ink drawings does not lessen their intensity; on the contrary, it seems to enhance it. And simplicity is something that the artist wholeheartedly embraces. Reimert briefly explains his thought process behind his choice of media:
"Analog, that’s my thing. From music to photographs to art. Yes, of course we use computers and cellphones, but isn’t it great to put on a record on your turntable on a Sunday morning and just enjoy the cracks in the music and the great artwork on the cover? That’s why I chose pen and paper."
