Iain Macarthur (born 1986) is an English illustrator whose online portfolio boasts a number of styles and commissions. This piece comes from his ‘Surreal’ category, where realistic portraiture is melded with intricate patterns and designs. Macarthur uses pencil, watercolor and pigment pens for his completed works and like all diligent artists carries a sketchbook with him at all times. Reminds me of a quote by William Sprague: “Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.” See more of Macarthur’s stuff here: iainmacarthur.carbonmade.com/
