Every time I look at a piece by Mike Giant I am in awe. I feel the same way I did the first time I saw an early Chuck Close painting in person. Mike Giant makes such intricate illustrations only with a sharpie marker. They are flawless. His lines are extremely clean. They look as if they could have been done on illustrator. To me he is one of the best at using pure black and white to describe his subjects.
