DZO Olivier’s Intricate Pen Drawings

French artist DZO Olivier creates painstakingly detailed pen-and-ink drawings without the use of pencils and erasers, committed to embracing the mistakes that accompany working with such a permanent medium. Olivier renders textures that weave and grow out of one another, mimicking the patterns of tree roots and bird feathers. The drawings are filled with morbid elements, but the innards and skeletons become a part of the other organic forms — a stage in the regenerative cycle of life. Take a look at some of DZO Olivier's works after the jump.
