Few of us have the opportunity to get up close and personal with our heroes, but Montreal-based illustrator and tattoo artist JAHWAN gives us an idea of what the experience might be like. His incredibly detailed drawings of cultural icons, created with pencil, pen, and white Posca paint markers, are like black-and-white photographs come to life — every hair and wrinkle is defined. He also has fantastic taste in subjects, depicting everyone from Frank Sinatra and Jackie O. to Lou Reed and the Notorious B.I.G. Click through for a gallery of some of our favorite JAHWAN portraits, and then visit his Behance site to see more of his work.
