    sorry if there is already a topic about patrick nagel. i searched around for one but found nothing.

    patrick nagel created an unmistakeable style derived from art deco. he depicted his subjects, mostly female, as simultaneously alluring and aloof.

    i remember seeing this as your avatar and was intrigued ^_^
    i actually thought it was manga/anime at first --some of the comics geared to more mature audiences have a close-to-naturalist drawing style such as this. such as banana fish, ninja scroll

    i love the choice of colours here, a little greyed sophisticated
    does remind me of the 90s without even looking at the 90s hair ^^

    don't think we have a thread on him yet, so thank you!
