    Von’s work has inspired me to be a better artist, in all ways. Not only these works, but many of his others show extreme technical skill which I aspire to achieve through hours of practice. Von is a true inspiration and a hero to me as a young artist. And idol, and a an ideal. Incredible work, and here are definitely a bunch of well deserved compliments for a man who never fails to impress, even if there was no giveaway. Great work Von :D

    I don’t what it is but something about that girl’s face is really eye-catching. Sign me up, this would be a perfect surprise for the girlfriend!

  • Matt

    OMG. This would be the first thing I looted after the Zombie Apocalypse. Well, maybe the second after say, bullets? I think I could stare at this all day, loading bullets and listening to the orchestral groans of the rotting masses, and just drift away into a surreal beauty. And if the day came that I finally ran out of bullets, I would use this work as a dapper instrument of destruction, paper-cutting zombies into shredded re-death. Because as much as I love the silver, I think it’d still look ok with some red, too. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • MAX

    Speechless, wow!

    the smooth silver silkscreened sparrow is super savory. I sincerely sing its salutations!

    Hello from Van, Von! There’s something inherently beautiful about the forms in your prints, what with all those graceful curves. Thanks for sharing, here’s to hoping I can see it up close in real life.

  • http://www.libbiking.blogspot.com Elizabeth

    As an illustration student it’s especially encouraging to see that paper, pencil and pure talent can still be SO successful in an increasingly digital industry! Von’s work is an absolute inspiration!

  • http://michaelshamoon.com Michael

    You da man Von!

  • Oreka

    Von,

    Your work is absolutely incredible; Surrealism at it’s best. All you need to know is that you can’t please everyone. You make Art because you love it, it’s apart of you and it’s for no one else but you. Art is like a diary in which only you write in and later read from; and only when you want, you’ll allow others –some loved ones, or even people who you know absolutely nothing about– to take a look at your deepest, darkest, happiest thoughts in life. But, the true love of Art is that only YOU will know exactly the reason as to why you have created it; and… you’ll love it forever.

    All you need to know,

    -An Artist

  • http://www.pouriolee.com Pourio

    Wow. Absolutely amazing. I definitely would like to get one for sure. If I had the money, I’d for sure purchase the “Bird 07″ piece.

  • Michael Effny

    I find surrealism to be such a cloudy and poorly populated art genre currently. Von is a refreshing, and amazing talent. Gorgeous work, and inconstantly gorgeous. The technical ability is outstanding and so well blended with the subject itself.

    Hope that makes sense. Been following Von’s work for some time and it never disappoints me.

  • kevin

    awesome work… would love to know what fuel was playing in the headphones while drawing her face – von is a snow leopard with a pencil.

    Hey there von.

    I’m not writing this in hope of getting one of your prints… (as nice as that would be) I just thought i’d take the opportunity to mention that through the years studying illustration since my foundation… (and i’ve since graduated from uni aswell) you’re one of the ones at the top of my list of favourite illustrators and has stood the test of time as I still check your website from time to time.

    keep scribblin,

    Jonny.

    Keep doing what you do.

    GoodbyeVon.

  • Nas Chompas

    Woooooowwww that is an amazing print! I’ll trade you for my favorite quote of the day: “Let the most absent-minded of men be plunged in his deepest reveries – stand that man on his legs, set his feet a-going, and will infallibly lead you to water, if water there be in all that region……Yes, as every one knows, meditation and water are wedded for ever.” -Herman Melville, Moby Dick

    love the piece shown here, it is as if the woman has appeared out of someone’s smoke they blew up into the air. I love that it is so realistic and surreal at the same time, very trippy. I would love to stare and admire this silkscreen on the daily. xoxo

  • http://businessinfrontpartyintheback.tumblr.com Rob Mar

    Sooo many stories can be told from just one look at each of these prints. This is the kind of consecutive work that grants aspiring artists like myself and others the inspiration to go forth and create something new. I have not seen or heard anything from Von since the collaboration with Ekud, glad to see more prints. Really, keep this up. As original as it gets.
    Respect.

  • Holly

    Love your technique with these portraits, the form you do them is something I really strive for in my own art and you’ve accomplished them beautifully. Congrats on the good work, and you’ve inspired me to continue on working.

    Should probably say something meaningful like, it is my dying gran’s wish to have one of these prints, but I won’t…

  • Susan

    Um, yes please! It’s gaaahhhhgeous.

    Pssst…I’ll trade you this comment for that print.

    Meet me in the alley at 3.43PM.
    Don’t be late.

    Yes flipping please

  • Victoria

    Who’d a thunk a suspended head could be something other than creepy. But this isn’t. It’s so beautiful, I adore the fluidity of the hair and you can see something of that softness in her expression. The lines are so distinctive, you can see the symmetry between this character and the hovering bird. They’re both stuck in a stunning frozen moment of time. I adore these.

    amazing work!!!

  • http://www.wix.com/philipmaniaci/film Phil

    These prints are amazing!! A word of encouragement for you Von would be to rest your drawing hand every 15 minutes to avoid carpel tunnel/cramping. You can’t let that carpel take you down!!

  • KJ

    Von, you sure are good at art! I mean really good! really really good!

  • Donny

    these are absolutely amazing! the sense of motion in the composition is absolutely beautiful.

  • carly

    I have never actually seen any of vons work, seeing this print from him makes me want to look at all his work. ( which i will do :)) this print is beautiful along with the smaller one. I would love to look at every detail. Amazing work Von.

  • Jae

    I can’t say that I have ever been so incredibly interested and stunned at the same time. Your patience and attention to detail is God like. I now have a new life goal, if I could be even half as amazing as you are it would be the most incredible gift I could ever hope for. I feel revived and rejuvenated! My mind is now swirling with anticipation and expansions of what level I can push myself to. Thank you for giving people something worth aspiring to. :D :D :D !!!

  • Naomi

    The white walls of my new apartment in this big new city are empty — help give my room/psyche some warmth!

    Keep with it, Von; seeing someone pursue their passion and talent is the greatest thing. I’ve been working on collecting current young artists’ work and would love to add one of your prints.

    Hi Von,
    I have seen this image of yours posted about several places in my scouring of the net and have liked it. Something sculptural, ethereal and of a mask. Not an easy set to bring together.
    Having just had a brief view of your website I see you have clearly rooted yourself in your world. Always happy to see an artist making a living from what they do.
    I’m sure you are praised regularly, so you don’t need any more from me other than to say I am impressed with what you must have gone through to get there. Always a learning curve.
    Have a look at my website. I paint backdrops for film/commercials/fashion. Very used to painting big. If it would interest you to do something together, give me a mail.
    In the meantime I look forward to your next works.
    All the best,
    David

    Would love to show those in my house.

  • Igor Pismensky

    Love how you made the face look as if it were a mask. Not to woman bash, but women do put on makeup so in some respects a mask fits however thats not to say men dont hide their feelings behind a facade. Love to see more work like this.

  • Flick

    Last Minute! I would love this print

    I once knew an artist name Von. A singer and songwriter back in the city of homes. A lady’s man who didn’t believe in faith. He got himself entangled with a beautiful angel. Played his normal game on the white soul. Factors came into play and people began to spray. Dispatch came. She already left. Family wept, friends prayed, but it was done. I tried to run to her, but she left behind the veil.

    Your work inspires me to remember the lost souls in all there beauty.
    For you Arden.
