Pal Shohei is exhibiting new illustrations at Tokyo’s Carhartt Store, November 17 – 25. With his intricate ballpoint pen work, Shohei’s managed to carve out some interesting territory and avoid being overshadowed by his superstar dad.
I’ve seen Shohei’s work up close a couple times, and it really does defy description. I won’t get near a piece of paper without an eraser in hand, but Shohei does this stuff start-to-finish in ink, with no revision. Not for the faint of heart.
