Jamel Akib
Jamel Akib is an illustrator, gallery artist and portraitist based in West Sussex, England.

His range of style reaches from straightforwardly realistic to images composed of blazing shards of color, often with rough sketch-like elements of drawing incorporated with the more paint-like finish of key areas.

Akib takes great advantage of the properties of pastel that allow properties of drawing and painting to be employed in the same image.

His website features galleries of images in several genres, along with information about classes and demonstrations.
