Architectural Pen and Pencil Drawings of Nature and Life [ILLUSTRATIONS]
It’s easy for us to forget that art and nature are closely connected to mathematics, particularly geometry. Venezuelan artist Rafael Araujo uses pens and pencils, rulers, and protractors to create stunning and mathematically precise architectural illustrations of nature. His series Calculation consists of drawings of butterflies and seashells, geometrically mapped out in a three-dimensional space.
These architecture-inspired illustrations are even more impressive when you realize that this artist took the time and energy to complete what today’s design programs can do in minutes.
