Pop Culture in Pen and Ink

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."

Visit Reimert's website to see more of his drawings or to request a commissioned piece. Connect with him through social media on FacebookTwitterInstagramGoogle+ and Pinterest. Via 22 Words.
