The first glimpse I had of UK illustrator Migy’s work was at this year’s Glastonbury festival, with his lanky characters featured on charity posters and guides all over the place. Not a bad place for a bit of exposure. I really like his shapes and colours, but particularly the expression created through his fun illustration style.
I was recently impressed by the felt tip pen illustration work of an English artist going by the name of ‘Mr Frivolous‘. As most of you have probably found out, drawing a picture with felt tip marker pens can be messy and difficult.
Joseph Lambert is one hard-working cartoonist and illustrator with a great, well developed style. I’m particularly keen on his self-made comics and the techniques and tools he uses to create his addictive work. I asked him a few questions to find out about all this in greater detail.
I was recently left dumb struck by the quality of Lee Misenheimer’s drawing work and the effect created through his intense, well-trained lines. Graduating from East Carolina University School of Art in 1994, Lee has a large collection of his drawings in his cache.
There is some spectacular work coming from Canadian-based, Japanese illustrator Yuta Onoda. He is a recent graduate of Sheridan College, Canada, with a Bachelor of Applied Arts.
What I particularly like in his work is its dynamism: the movement and flow that emanates from each piece with a delicate attention to each pencil stroke. I asked him a few questions for those of you wishing greater enlightenment into his work.
Here is the work of Wilmer Murillo, a freelance illustrator from Tegucigalpa, Honduras. With his close attention to light and textures, his work has real depth to it, making the work feel very tangible. Some of the content of his illustrations remind me of the surreal work of Salvador Dalí, although there are many other influences there.
