Byzantine landscapes in brilliant detail from South Africa-based illustrator Jean de Wet

10 July 2012

Look! Lovely clear line illustration with an incredible surface quality from South Africa-based Jean de Wet. In a reserved palate of one or two colours, Jean depicts epic jungle scenes, teenage prophets and mystical mud swamps in large-scale, one pager, byzantine narratives. They are a wonderful feat of foliage, architecture, imagination and characters who blend seamlessly into their environments and, for the reader, they’re a total trip.
