Simón Prades has been walking in the woods a lot recently. It’s a good place to clear your mind, spend some quiet time and come up with new ideas. This January the well known illustrator decided to focus a new series around these walks, paying special attention to the seasons of the forest and the contrasts between light and shadow. In his just released series of three drawings, Loup, he explores these contrasts with positive and negative space, subtly and beautifully revealing the animals of the forest in the detritus of the leaf covered floor and swaying branches of the trees above.

Prades is a freelance illustrator living in Saarbrücken, Germany, the place which he expresses through these recent ink on paper works. When he’s not teaching illustration at the University of Applied Sciences in Trier, he is creating fantastic (and fantastically detailed) work for the likes of The New York Times, The New Republic, Nike and Flyemirates Magazine. You can see more of his personal website or Behance based portfolio for more. Everything he illustrates demands a close, introspective look.
