With a long list of collaborators and clients that includes Usher, Clarks and Urban Outfitters, you’ve more than likely encountered a piece of Pins‘s work. The London-based artist specializes in illustration and photography, using meticulous hand techniques to create surreal renderings of real-life objects. Exploring one of the artist’s notebook was an exploration of color and imagination, with vibrant detailed pen drawings filling each page. Lips, doughnuts and zebra stripes all come together as running themes –- no matter the illustration. New work and more famous portfolio pieces are both included in the book, as well as a much-appreciated custom shout-out. Enjoy a look through Pins’s Pen & Paper above, and for more from the artist, head over to his website.
