Richard Kilroy's work is breathtaking... seriously stunning! I love how he focus his attention on the realistic faces and little details from the clothing. It's pure minimalism, because it has the essential information and that's it, nothing more nothing less! The clothes are drawn by the outlines and other structuring lines, but never completely filled and finished. He gives you a hint of how it looks like so that you complete it with your own imagination. It's not easy to leave white elements in an illustration, it takes skills and aesthetics to know where it works. White is hard to work with, it needs texture and richness to stand out. Kilroy uses it when doing illustrations for Alexander McQueen, Rick Owens, Dior, Acne, Versace, Jil Sander, and the list goes on and on!
I have to do some illustrations as well, therefore I'm hoping they end up as close to these as possible! If they do, I might consider posting some!
Now tell me, what do you think? Do you like it?
