David Sauceda’s Highly Detailed Portraits

Mexican artist David Sauceda creates highly detailed illustrations.  Primarily using ink and paper, he constructs his compositions from innumerable finely controlled lines.  His portraits pictured here, literally depict the inside and outside of a person.  The series is titled Membrane, referring to the outer body as opposed to an inner psychology.  On this idea of a membrane Sauceda states:

The membrane is in a constant state of change and adaptability, leading to the development of an identity.” [via]
