Energetic, emotional brush and ink work, beautifully drawn characters, and thoughtful, dark humour, are some of the elements in Roman Muradov ‘s work. I love his illustration work on its own but his comic strips really pulled me in. Wait until you have a little time to spare for being drawn in, then head over to his comic site, where he post all his latest comic strips. Here, he goes into his work in some detail.

There’s a great intensity to Laure Stromboni’s work. There’s a lot going on, with so much for your eyes to take in, but her use of colour and the way she arranges all the smaller elements somehow gives the images a striking energy you might usually expect from simpler compositions. She was kind enough to take some time to explain her work a little more in depth.

I love how Kruella D’Enfer’s work seems slightly dark while also being bold and colourful. She’s a mixed media artist, using pens, markers, and spray paint, and lists her inspirations as old-school tattoos, future music, constellations, galaxies and all that surrounds her. Here, she tells us more about herself.

This interesting and original project is from recent University of Brighton graduate, Matt Lyver. It’s an intriguing concept, engaging his surroundings and questioning the environments we live in.

It seems to have also been quite an undertaking but definitely presented well, having not only a collection of miniature installations around town but also a screen printed, embossed book documenting the project and a larger installation within the walls of the degree show. He tells us more.

Toronto-based Nolan Pelletier‘s work is light and uplifting. As explains below, the different textures and types of line that he uses in his work is very considered, looking for just the right kind of materials in old books, he manages to add the particular character he wants to achieve. I’m glad he has found it, it’s the right kind of character to start your day with or put a smile on your face.
