The Fabulous, Must-See Work of Anthony Hare


Once in a while, I’ll be browsing the internet and would run into an artist that would just make me say, “WOW!” Well, Anthony Hare is one of them. This man has mastered the art of black and white illustrations. You absolutely need to see his work. I like his work very much. It is very clean, and the lines are sharp and crisp. Another thing that amazes me is not only the quality of his work, but the quantity of it as well. Anthony has tons of pieces in his portfolio and they are all really nice. You need to check out his portfolio site here1.

Anyways, enough of me talking and more of you viewing. Go ahead and check out 20 of his illustrations that I have included here.

Note: I didn’t include the titles of the illustrations for a reason. Can you guess who some of these are? Most of them are famous people. Leave your comments below.

Also, he has another site where he shows you a short video on how he accomplishes the finished product. It’s just amazing! You can view those videos here. What’s amazing about his work is that it looks easy, but when you see this videos, you’ll be shocked at how he accomplishes his illustrations. Line by line.
