A Brief Look: The Illustrations of Jeffrey Alan Love

 

 

The work of illustrator Jeffrey Alan Love pulses with a primal energy — his images carved heavy like modern cave paintings. His sketchbook plays out like the retelling of a lost and ancient world, with Love playing the discoverer. The explorer. With his simple tools he creates a universe of stamped black and white.

Love’s style is at its best when used to tell archaic lore. Beasts. Warriors. Mythic evil. He puts the core struggle and beauty of those eternal stories front and center. Yet when he tackles the environment of today, Love’s art gives it weight — his brush finds the bold epic behind every story.
