My illustrations for Karbony.

“The continuity of a unique mark. It’s the common thread between my art as a draftsman and the thread that shapes Karbony’s space. Along the trace, the tip of my pencil never leaves the paper, just as the carbon fiber thread never breaks to create Karbony products. From the beginning of the thread to the end of the spool, from the first point of the pencil stroke to the last, as in my first illustration. With the essentiality of the mark, the cleanliness of the line, the monochrome of lines and curves in the continuous trace, I will create illustrated boards featuring a character that tells the Karbony story.”
