Drawings of Mysterious Wooden People

The first three images are part of a series titled “Wood People,” which David Cristobal explains that “looking at the lines of a tree can tell you a lot about its life”; so the same goes for people. Each facial expression, wrinkle, scar… can say much about a person from their personality to possible struggles in life. The artist used pencils to create effective textures in these portraits as well as other recent ones (like the Dandelion Kid).
