FYI Monday: Expressive Portrait Illustrations by Florian Nicolle

This post is part of the For Your Inspiration Monday Series showcasing the most inspiring designs out there. Each week a new artist or design style will be presented in order to get your creative juices flowing for the upcoming week. I hope you enjoy the series.
Florian Nicolle is a French illustrator and graphic designer working under the name of NEO. He works in both print and web, but my favourite works are Florian’s traditional portrait illustrations. They’re absolutely gorgeous and have a great raw feeling to them. For more inspiration visit Florian Nicolle’s portfolio or check out his Behance site.
