Artist Nicolas Jolly Draws Fingerprint Patterns Within his Illustrations

It’s not too difficult to see why we love this artwork by Nicolas Jolly.

Fingerprints! And we love fingerprint art.

These drawings are made up of thousands of fine lines, curving and swirling to create unique patterns within the image itself. It’s hard to tell when looking at the images, which he planned out first – what the drawing is of, or the “fingerprints” within them. Using only black ink, he works only with the width and pressure of the lines to illustrate the big picture.

We would love to see one of these images being drawn, to witness Jolly’s process.

Remember the great pop-up books of your childhood? Castles jumping off the page, witches flying their brooms, pirates sailing ships on surging seas? We came across these modern pop-ups for grown-ups on Colossal and had to share their monochrome magic.

Portland-based designer and art director Mengyu Chen is currently working on a new comic book and has mocked up some experimental pop-ups of her own design. The ideas and execution are really quite spectacular…

We love the simplicity of the paper airplane but were also blown away by these fireworks. Other pop-ups include a kaleidoscope and growing seedling.

Mengyu, aka Jenny, is an über talented artist who enjoys typography, letterpress, illustration, photography and crafts in many shades and colours. We especially connected with her TypePlay project, a collection of handdrawn and digital typography she created.

Despite the colorful pop-up books I grew up on, I can almost appreciate these more—they’re bare bones black and white, but still iconic symbols of childhood, cemented in reality.

Are you also a fan of B&W art? Our DNA Portraits, Fingerprint Portraits and Kiss Portraits all have crisp, modern black and white color schemes.
