Incredible One Line Portraits

HERO line.jpg

It doesn't take much to keep us happy. Shove a gin and tonic in one hand and a burger in the other and we're content. Basically, what we're saying is we like the simple pleasures in life.

Case in point are these superb line drawings from artist Christophe Louis. The collection of designs includes Batman, Spider-Man, Daniel Craig as Bond as well as directors David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick.

While each one is created using just one line, he still manages to capture each character perfectly. We don't like the bandy the word genius around much, but for Christophe we think you'll agree it's fully deserved.
