Matt Forsythe lends his talent for creative character design to TV, previously working as lead designer on Adventure Time for two seasons. We take a look at his own illustration work and its¬†gorgeous array of colours.
Chi Birmingham has developed a strong, unique style by finding a place between bold, solid forms and the softer touch of the hand-drawn line.
His illustrations are broken down into sets of rounded blocks of form and thick, imposing lines. It gives every image he¬†makes a punchy tone and immediate pull¬†for the eye.
Even when not taking inspiration from roofs, archways, and brick walls or crafting award-winning insights to London’s urban environment, Daniel Clarke’s work has a striking architectural quality to it.
With a colourful collection of shapes, Daniel builds his images and layers them with the same overlapping, textured quality as print. It’s a technique he has carried through even though now working mostly digitally.
Nick Ogonosky brings painterly marks to stricter, geometric forms, with other nicely gritty textures. With this approach, he manages to add a nice layer of atmosphere to his editorial illustrations.

Kevin Whipple takes his inky drawings and presents them in clever arrangements of just a few select colours. The balance of the drawing and the colour¬†aspects of his work gives his editorial images great contrast as well as a graphical boldness.
There’s something very enticing and tactile about Ophelia Pang’s drawings. The sea of rooftops and warped streets in her townscapes is bustling with creative marks and interesting colours.

We’ve previously featured Marta Monteiro’s work, having been really taken with her use of layers and colour. Two years on, we take a look at how she has developed her style as she talks to us about the need to experiment with new techniques.
