Raymond Lemstra, illustrator

Raymond Lemstra is getting a lot of online love right now, with a curious and engaging mix of japanese, anthropological, botanical illustration styles.

His 'tekening' skills lend a degree of weight to his more hip subjects that encourages further viewings. Other images show further thinking beyond just pretty pictures, his bloated and disfigured pop culture heads, like Tintin/'Kuifje' below reduce icons to their minimal identifying features, while disguising their humanity.
His works make me want to get out and draw things.
