It Don't Matter if You're Black or White

June 18, 2014

Some of the most “colorful” illustration of all is absolutely void of color: black & white. Whether it's created with pencil, ink, charcoal or paper-cut, black and white work can be some of the most beautiful, powerful and sharp. We collected a few favorite pieces (even some from our own Chris Sasaki) and displayed them below. Plus, check out our brand new Black & White Pinterest board, full of great black and white illustrations!
