Simple and Expressive Marks in Inky Illustrations by Pol Montserrat

With just a few quick flicks of the brush, Pol Montserrat can lay down enough information to suggest form and structure while maintaining the movement and expression of unedited marks. We really like the sparseness in Pol’s work, which highlights qualities of the marks over all.
