The Art Of WXY2

WXY2, who also goes under the monicker of 'Moby Dick' and 'Harukei3' really brought back memories of reading Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira manga, and the inspiration is not hard to spot here. WXY2's hyper detailed lineart shows a love for tech and machinery, juxtaposed against the contrast of stark white backgrounds and simply styled characters inhabiting his chaotic worlds.

I can really appreciate anyone who manages to find the balance between areas of extreme detail and areas or rest in their compositions, a feat that this artist seems to do really well. And kudos for going the diesel-punkish route with his worlds, something that you don't see very often.
