Beautiful Scratchboard Universal Monsters Illustrations

by

Nicolas Delort is an illustrator currently living in the grey suburbs of Paris. Gathering inspiration in the daily and mundane as well as books and any kind of narrative medium, Nicolas endeavours to tell stories, big and small, by working on strong, evocative and intricate black and white compositions. He uses a slightly unusual method to create his pieces, called ‘scratchboard’; an illustrative technique using sharp knives and tools for etching into a thin layer of white China clay that is coated with black India ink.

Nicolas created these beautiful scratchboard Universal Monsters posters for art collective Dark Hall Mansion using this technique. Check them out below.
