Lively Scribbles Produce Energetic Portraits of Famous Faces

Malaysia-based illustrator Vince Low uses a playful scribbling technique to produce his energetic black and white portraits. He first discovered his lively process while doodling in his sketchbook. He realized that his notes were actually the path towards worthwhile final products.

Low says, “I knew that it would be a challenge for me to scribble out and capture the souls and characters of those people in the portraits. For that reason, I was determined to make a breakthrough by bringing my crafting skills to a whole new level.”

Though scribbles are often seen as just mindless marks across a page, Low’s work is quite purposeful. His confident pen strokes result in realistic portraits filled with beautiful lights and shadows, and incredibly impressive details. His happy personality comes across in the playful explosion of loops and lines and the final portraits are a balance of a seemingly haphazard approach with complex, skilled results.
