Tiny hyperrealism

These striking monochromatic images are no larger than a pen. Created by Swedish student and artist Johanna (aka @jackdevilart), the illustrations are most next to simple tools for scaling purposes – you may not realise just how tiny they are – as well as incredibly detailed and precise.

A mixture of fine-tipped pens and freshly sharpened pencils help Johanna create the small marks and subtle shading needed to bring her miniscule subjects to life. Although mostly drawn in a realistic style, she’s not afraid to mix techniques, either. Johanna often incorporates bold silhouettes for a dramatic flair, catching your eye and immediately commanding your attention.
