Nicolas Delort, a freelance illustrator based in Paris, creates wonderfully textural pen & ink (on scratchboard) illustrations that take inspiration from greats like Franklin Booth and Gustav Doré — with perhaps a bit of Joseph Clement Coll and Virgil Finlay thrown in for good measure.
Delort’s website is essentially just a placeholder at the moment, but his blog is active, and he has just been added to the artists represented by Shannon Associates artists representatives (more here).
Delort has a piece in the As Above So Below group exhibition at Floating World Comics in Portland, OR from February 7 to February 28, 2013. The exhibit is based on a challenge posed by Quenched Consciousness Tumblog (my post here) in which participants reinterpret a panel from Moebius & Jororowsky’s The Incal (above, second from bottom).
There is an interview with Delort on Open Lab Artists.
