‘The Birds’ – Terryfying Black and White Illustrations by Stuart Patience

Stuart Patience - The Birds

The thought of being attacked by a large flock of birds becomes somehow even more terrifying when seen in this triptych of illustrations created by the London-based illustrator Stuart Patience. Inspired by Hitchcock’s The Birds, Stuart’s series displays how powerful black and white imagery can be, while his crisp and clean lines add a sharpness that can nearly be felt. His technical skill are really impressive, but it never over-shadows the sheer terrifying nature of the imagery. I love it!

Stuart Patience - The Birds

Drawn with a Rotring pen, Stuart’s work display incredible detail and incomprehensible patience. For me, the series reminds me a little of the works of Robert Longo (perhaps re-imagined by Charles Burns), but in truth it’s really unlike anything I’ve seen before. You can see more work from Stuart on his website here. Go check it out!
