Scale with John Kenn..

John Kenn is a great artist who tells amazing stories with a single image. His drawings are addictive, and take us far into the place that he fabricates using a minimal monochromatic style of drawing. One of my favorite elements of his storytelling is his use of contrasts in scale. Just like Ron Muecks sculptures live larger than his audience, so does John Kenn's images, except that they are completely contained within an illustration. There's also a darkness and mystery that I enjoy with his work. John has overnight become a very substantial influence to my own work, hope his work serves to inspire you as well!
