Classic Half-Erased Charcoal Drawings of Celebrities

Charlize Theron

British artist Ileana Hunter draws unique portraits of celebrities that are minimal, but still easily recognizable. Most of the women Hunter features in her charcoal drawings are iconic, and she often deletes part of the image to make an impressive alteration to a familiar subject. With all the extra details erased, only the most essential features for identification are left to focus on and incredible attention is drawn to the eyes and mouths.
