Ricardo Bessa

Combining both hand-drawn and digital elements, Ricardo Bessa creates beautiful, otherworldly illustrations that blur the lines between realism and fantasy.

Drawing inspiration from nature, comics, mythology and fiction, Ricardo has built up an exquisite portfolio that instantly transports the viewer into a colourful, ethereal world of magnificent beasts, ominous woods, mustachioed men and keenly observed human forms.
