Lo­ca­tion: US Web: www.ijust­ Email: ijust­ me­dia: Graphite Il­lus­tra­tor and con­cept artist Allen’s cred­its in­clude Guillermo del Toro’s Pa­cific Rim and Dar­ren Aronof­sky’s Noah. When the Amer­i­can isn’t help­ing shape Hol­ly­wood block­busters, he turns his hand to paint­ings and draw­ings that are char­ac­terised by their dark el­e­ments and sur­real themes.

Ev­ery piece be­gins in graphite – a medium that, the artist says, doesn’t cover his page but “in­fects” it. “Many of my draw­ings grow out of or­ganic or chaotic ex­per­i­men­ta­tion. This led to the phrase ‘graphite-in­fected paper’ – which is how I de­scribe my work.

“I’ve tried as many dif­fer­ent brands of graphite and paper as I can find and I love col­lect­ing dif­fer­ent types of ma­te­ri­als, but al­most any pen­cil will do and al­most any paper.”
