Great. So suggestive, which is something we are sorely lacking in this age of over-rendering.

I love how the heavy blacks balance and fill-out the finer lines.

They look even more powerful when you isolate them, their looseness & vignette composition are gorgeous. I still prefer when he add values with washes, Like Madame Bovary or Casanova series he did.
I wish i could draw as forcefully and purposefully as he does….
