Graphite Illustrations by Raymond Lemstra

March 24th, 2014 | Robot






Raymond Lemstra is a Dutch artist who creates imaginative illustrations with graphite and watercolor that could come right out of a Hayao Miyazaki film. According to Lemstra,

“As you get older, new impressions become more scarce and it’s a rare experience to be surprised by anything. I try to bring back the sense of wonder we remember from being a child, bridging the young and mature, by creating a contained fantasy world populated by my characters… …With my work I like to refer to the illustrative nature of primitive drawings and sculptures.”

You can find a large collection of Lemstra’s work and pick up prints at his site.
