London-based illustrator Miles Johnston creates dreamy, surreal portraits of girls whose faces are distorted or removed.
Entitled “Transformations”, Johnston’s ongoing series is divided into four parts: “Deform”, “Divide”, “Attract” and “Recur”. Each work features the face or body of a woman who appears to be in a reflective, melancholic and dream-like mood, often set against the backdrop of a natural world containing surreal elements. Working with a graphite pencil, the freelance illustrator sketches in a hyper smooth style, revealing a talent for technique and texture.
