One of the best parts about blogging is you never know what kinds of inexplicably awesome emails to expect. I can’t even express how delighted I was to open an email from Danny Roberts, the insanely talented illustrator that runs Igor and Andre. His work is a seamless fantasy-like blend of ethereal, powerful, and moody, with subjects ranging from fashion models to fairy tales to infinitely expressive portraits of friends. It’s apparent that Egon Schiele is one of his most admired artists in the slightly sinewy, distorted quality of his work, but without the grotesque tendencies that Schiele was known for. Okay enough rambling.

My favorites: Chanel half-tints, character sketches, fashion illustrations, blue eyed siren
