By now I’m sure you’ve seen the work of Yann-G floating around the interwebs. But one thing I’ve yet to see is anyone take note of his process of illustration through the use of negative space.

These two illustrations above stuck me as his most successful use of this method. The cyclist is outlined by a series of somewhat whimsical lines.

With the latter being the reverse. Reminds me of some of our drawing class exercises in Architecture school. You get a golden star Yann G, I’m really feeling these.
