Japanese Artist Spends Years Creating Incredibly Detailed Ink Drawings That Feature Entire Worlds

Our loyal readers might already be familiar with Manabu Ikeda and his works, but you will find something new in his drawings every time you take a look at them, whether you’ve just discovered the artist or have been following him for a while. His large, surreal masterpieces fit entire worlds, and they’re so intricate, it’s probably impossible to ingest them in one viewing, even if you spend hours gazing at every inch of them. The pen and ink pieces constantly offer you new details.
