Dave Malan is an artist an illustrator I’ve featured twice before, most recently back in 2015. Since then he has updated his website with more of his delightful illustrations, portraits, and drawings.

As you might guess from my choice of example images, I’m particularly fond of his pencil portrait drawings. These range from brief sketches to more developed drawings, but in all of them he combines solid draftsmanship with lose, gestural rendering — to wonderful effect.

His website doesn’t mention his old blog, which hasn’t been updated since 2017, but it’s still online and worth a visit, as it contains even more of his pencil drawings and other work. You can also find more on the social media accounts linked at the top of his website.
