Flea markets are great for finding hidden treasures and when I got my hands on some old books, I just couldn't stop wondering if these gems might be useful for something different than just reading.

Having a thing for aged and vintage things I got out my fineliners and started doodling on the pages. Turns out I really enjoyed the way words and art merged together creating something new entirely.

So with my art, I would like to show the world what a great medium a book is. They are so much more than just words on pages. They are adventures and inspiration in a thousand different ways.

I mainly do black and white illustrations, sometimes with splashes of red and it takes up to 8 hours to create those pieces but I love every minute of it, so what do you think?

As a Bibliophile, I find myself conflicted with this form of art, there is no doubt the art itself is stunning and quite extraordinary; but the act of defiling a piece of literature just give me cold chills up my spine. The artistic outcry is exemplary and simply intoxicating, this is a truly a wondrous art form leaving me conflicted and perplexed, between the battle of love to the point of near worship of books and true appreciation for a breathtaking artistic endeavor.
