Berlin-based Israeli illustrator, Noa Snir has a penchant for figure-based scenes bustling with life. Her work often hosts a variety of quirky, curios characters, all fumbling around with their own strange goings on.
Recent graduate, James Fisher’s work has a an easy going drawing style and a playful cheekiness in it that we really like. He tells us about his techniques that focus on drawing. His final illustrations keep the initial sketchy style without being over worked in the process.
