Edward Kwang, Title Unknown, (Minotaur)

Vancouver-based artist Edward Kwong makes quasi-retro, noir-ish illustrations that reference old comic books, art deco, and other classic looking aesthetics. Full of angular, expressive figures, high-impact typography and often sepia-infused colors, his work captures entire narratives in single, meticulously-rendered images.
