Line of Vision. The Portraits of Kathryn Rathke.

Illustrator Kathryn Rathke  has perhaps the strongest, most expressive, and evocative line in illustration today. How is it possible say so much with so little? It’s called the art of restraint people. Every line is just right, nothing more, nothing less. These are from a series portraits of Newsweek/Daily Beast columnists where Kathryn is also a contributor. Also available for viewing on the Newsweek/Daily Beast iPad edition. And yes, of course there’s a blog.
