Paris based illustrator Carine Brancowitz is devoted to music and painting, she studied illustration, screen printing and lithography. Her work, drawn with ball point pen, is a labyrinth of detailed patterns, inked with vibrant hues.
She often draws adolescents as they mill about during all too ordinary situations. Sometimes they’re eating or laughing or sitting or sad. Carine’s precision helps bring her subjects to life. Her work is full of depth as she contrasts detailed subjects against flat backgrounds, perfectly capturing the moods of her teens. Her skill is all in the subtle nuances, the way a thousand tiny lines of hair can be strewn against a girl’s bright eyes.
