This man is a brilliant genius.  He does vector renderings of military aircraft.  These two statements may seem contradictory.  I assure you the characterization is not made lightly. WS_Clave can somehow bring out the inner beauty of airplanes in a way that's rare to see in any type of technical illustration.  His illustrations remind me of Haeckel and other great nature illustrators from the 18th and 19th centuries.  Pages of F-16s in various colour schemes may not be your thing, but that doesn't lessen his achievement.  These pictures, to me at least, have the same magic stillness as Renaissance alter pieces.
