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, as is this Tumblog, 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.
