If the sketches shown here by Brazilian artist Kako look familiar its probably because he has been everywhere lately- from Premiere and Playboy magazines to ads for American Airlines and Apple. One can see why he’s won virtually every illustration award under the sun from 2001 to the present. Every individual piece of Kako’s is so finely detailed you’d swear it was entirely computer generated- his sketching is absolutely out of this world. Moving through his body of work one can see a distinct style and feeling in each individual piece. On the surface, his work seems like the love child of Frank Miller and Edward Gorey, but upon closer look you realize that Kako is operating to the beat of his own drummer and genre.
