Amazing blind contour drawings by Ian Sklarsky

Ian Sklarsky is a New York-based illustrator and filmmaker. Famous for his ‘blind contour’ portraits (he will draw with one line that doesn’t leave the paper, looking only at his subject), Sklarsky has drawn 700 plus people this year and I’m impressed with the nuances he finds in his subjects. He’s produced these illustrations in a large range of sizes and often adds an epoxy layer that forms a liquid glaze, embedding itself in the paper to create translucency and preserve the image.
