Tom Kindley’s mythology-inspired comics and prints are put together with a creative use of detail and shading. In this way, he builds mysterious worlds and intriguing landscapes. We take a closer look to see what we find there.
By playing with contrast in a range of different ways, Ellie Andrews has created a unique voice for her illustration work. We take a look at some of the colours, textures and compositions she uses in her images to achieve this.
‘Curious Dot No.1: Thought Experiments’ is the first release from the recently establish independent press, Curious Dot. The issue sees international illustrators take on some of our worlds most interesting ideas and theories.
The worn gradients of photocopied blocks of black and the fine grains seen up close in paper are just some of the wonderful textures we enjoy in the work of Catarina Sobral.
Animator Ross Phillips brings together wit and timing in his wonderful animated snippets. We take a look at some of his visual one liners as well as his gif-based comic strip.
Ana Benaroya puts her sense of humour to good work as well as her knack for mixing eye-catching colours in her tongue-in-cheek, joyful work.
Ana’s drawings and paintings are bold and unashamedly bright, as well as having an endearing charm to them. Her unrestricted use of colour pairs beautifully with her cheeky sense of fun, and work well in her animations too. Check out some of her tv work (the ’80s clip is particularly great) while she tells us more about herself.
Jack Taylor is serving up some textured goodness in his screen printed illustrations. Strong compositions and use of simple forms makes for some nice, graphic work.
As well as the weathered surfaces and blocks of colour he creates, we also enjoy Jack’s eye for structure and layout. Especially in his comics, close cropping and bringing the lens right in produces really interesting panels.
