Fredrik von Blixen

These illustrations are similar to Edward Gorey's in that they are both built up using fine line work. Even the writing at the bottom is similar to Gorey's. However this drawing from Fredrik von Blixen's 'Found' uses a large white area which makes it a lot lighter than Gorey's. The white area describes the sea, with just some of the waves drawn in and the rest just suggested makes it more interesting than if it was all painstakingly drawn in.
