I just came across the website of the award winning artist Mohammad Aghaei. This native of Isfahan's style is strongly representative of the prevalent theme among Persian illustrators: A lot of substance, an almost philosophical approach to illustration, and strong Eastern European influences. I must admit that my personal taste is more inclined towards the North American, more 'comicy' styles, as well as Japanese influences. Nevertheless, there are some outstanding pieces in Aghaei's portfolio and I'm sure the fans of this style will appreciate his art greatly.
