The Poetic Illustrations of Johan Barrios

John Barrios' achieves a haunting sentiment in his drawings by using Graph Gear 500 mechanical pencil and watercolor.

The mixed media drawings are empowered by their subtleties; each nuance or "interruption" in shading or light becomes a sudden beacon against the surrounding melancholy. I like especially the atmosphere of historical photographs… accidents like oxidation spots gives more mystique to the image.” [via Hifructose]
