I chanced upon UK-based German illustrator Sandra Dieckmann’s busy illustrations via an interesting money-raising idea on her blog. Sandra is trying to raise £200 to buy a new printer, and to do so, is creating original drawings for those who donate.
Sydney-based illustrator Christopher Nielsen’s work is brimming with bold images in a fun, vintage style. I asked him some questions about his studio, his work process and his sources of inspiration.
I’d spotted illustrator Jack Teagle’s comic book whilst graphic novel-shopping in London recently.
I was struck by the beauty and appeal of such a well designed, drawn and printed book so I thought it would be nice to find out more about the process behind creating such a work, which he had published through a cool printing and publishing company called Nobrow.
I was contacted recently by Colombian illustrator Julian De Narvaez and was hugely impressed by his portfolio, some of which I can show to you here.
His work process involves an ink drawing on paper, followed by acrylic and digital colouring. At the moment Julian is working on a series of oil painting illustrations, claiming it is ‘something I’ve always had respect for but not been able to concentrate on before‘.
