Inadequate Child

If art can do anything, it can tug at our heart strings and make us remember feelings and emotions we thought we had buried. 24-year-old illustrator Berk Ozturk likes working with dark and melancholic themes like lost love and death. His favorite artists are Tim Burton, Edward Gorey, Alex Pardee and Todd McFarlane among others.

Drawing since he was a very young child, he now works as a children's book illustrator. Love how simple some of his drawings are but how they're so packed with emotion.
