Illustrations of women that prove the eyes are the windows to the soul

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, which certainly seems to be true in Lorenzo Plaatjies's work.

The illustrator is based in Johannesburg, South Africa, and specialises in drawing detailed portraits of women's faces – sometimes covered, or with eyes closed, but always telling of the personality beneath.

As well as being a very talented illustrator, Plaatjies also has one of the best websites I've visited in a long time. If you miss 90's desktops, then you'll love this. Check it out here: Just imagine the dial up tone ringing in your ears.
