Black and White Portraits.

Jacob Everett is an artist and illustrator from the UK. He creates large scale black and white portraits using biro. His work varies in subject from well known faces of popular culture to homeless men from the streets of Bradford. He use an intricate technique of overlapping elliptical marks, which gradually build to represent the subtle contours of the face. In common with digital images, his works, close up, appear as thousands of tiny ‘pixels’. When viewed from a distance they reveal the subtleties and nuances of individual character.
