The Art of Nesskain


What is it about Nesskain's artwork that arrests my attention? It could be the way that each of his pieces manages to feel intimate without necessarily being erotic. It could be the ethereal palettes of his digital paintings, or the intricacies of his pen and ink comic layouts. Maybe it's his subject matter, juxtaposing urban surrealism with sci-fi subtlety. Maybe it's something that escapes me right now, dancing beyond the cusp of words. Whatever it is, I like it.

Nesskain is the nom-de-plume of Hong Kim-Seang, a professional comic artist and illustrator from France. He counts both Hayao Miyazaki and Hideki Anno as his inspirations, which isn't surprising given his character and mech designs. It only gets better after the break.
