After Beardsley by Ryan Cho

One of the posts last week concerned a swipe from Harry Clarke by an unknown illustrator. This Beardsley pastiche came to my attention shortly after the Clarke discovery, not a swipe but a deliberate exercise by American illustrator Ryan Cho in adopting the Beardsley style. It took some effort to trace the origin of Cho’s drawing since this is one of many similar works proliferating via Tumblr and Pinterest in which the credit goes to Beardsley himself. Cho’s exercise was one of a series following the styles of different artists and illustrators. In addition to another Beardsley drawing there’s also a couple of less successful attempts to pastiche Harry Clarke; having attempted a Clarke pastiche myself I can testify to the scale of the challenge. More of Ryan Cho’s work may be seen here.
