Illustrator We Love: Thibaud Herem

The beauty certainly lies in the details for London-based French illustrator Thibaud Herem. At first glance, his architectural rendering handiwork seems photographic, but upon closer inspection, the magic reveals itself in the meticulous pencil and Indian ink hand drawn detailing the illustrator is known for.

Birdhouse Residence by Adam Sokol

One of the fastest growing and richest American cities in the early 20th century, Buffalo’s remaining building stock from its boom times is hard to match. But a lengthy period of economic stagnation and suburbanization since has led to a scant collection of postwar architecture, particularly housing.

What's so beautiful about Whitewash is its reliance on the stark abstraction and contrast of the structures to hold your intrigue without telling you what or where the building is—it really is just a surreal and amazing picture book. He does give clues as to the neighborhood, so perhaps some local Angelinos will know and choose to keep the mystery alive, so it remains all about the photography and not the location.
