We really like the combination of found textures and hand-drawn elements that come together is Dante Terzigni’s work. You can see his play with materials and mark making in his sketch books, which are a wonderful mashup of cut paper, sourced patterns, and drawing. He mostly works on computer, but the energy that comes from putting pen or scissor to paper is retained in his more polished illustrations.
Ohio-born Dante is based in Strongsville near Cleveland and has been working as a freelance illustrator since 2003 when he graduated from Columbus College of Art and Design. Talking about his work he says, “I call my style digital collage. I focus mainly on interactions between a variety of shape, edges, line, texture, scale, color, mood, etc.”
