Rafael Araujo is a Venezuelan artist who studied architecture at the Universidad Simón Bolivar in Caracas. The illustrations were completed entirely by hand and each piece takes approximately 100 hours from start to finish! It’s an uncommon display of focus in today’s technology-driven atmosphere.

Via Wired: Before computer-assisted drawing, there were artists like M.C. Escher, who Araujo counts among his biggest influences. “When I first saw M.C. Escher, I was speechless,” he says. “His artwork was so akin to my geometrical taste.”

The calculated style of the work reminds me of the old masters: da Vinci, Botticelli, and Michelangelo.
