Legends by William Hatch Crosby

Brooklyn based artist and illustrator William Hatch Crosby created a beautiful series of portraits covered in graphic, tribal, gouache markings. The markings remind a lot of traditional patterns used by the indigenous people of Australia, Africa and South America, which during ceremonies, would adorn their faces and bodies with clay, charcoal, and other natural pigments. This simple, yet striking portrait series, is titled “Legends”.
