Julia Rothman’s “Book By Its Cover” blog regularly features some incredible things bound in book form. But these from German Illustrator Lars Henkel simply leap off the page (screen?) in their pushing the boundaries of what “sketchbook” usually conjurs up.
“Lars Henkel wrote me wondering if I’d be interested in sharing his sketchbook. I am more than thrilled when an incredible artist such as Lars even has heard about the site, let alone wants to contribute to it. Lars work is interesting and impressive in every way. From realistically drawn elements to very stylized figures, I am most intrigued when he mixes his drawings with collage and creates layers of imagery for your eyes to get lost in. Check out more of his work here and keep up with him on his blog here. Now for the images- I couldn’t narrow down my favorites so i just decided to show everything he sent!”
