Illustration Love: Kenny Park

My discovery of the day is illustrator Kenny Park, who is signed with Shannon Associates who generally have pretty great taste in artists. There’s something so immediately compelling about his work, a touch of broody surrealism and a style of world-building that is simple but just strange enough to draw you in. His latest series is based on Hermes. kennyparkillustration
