In her exhibition, ‘Cat Island’, as a ‘Pick Me Up Selects’ artist for Pick Me Up earlier this year, Jessica Das took us to a place filled with pop-out colours and (of course) cats.
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.
Lennard Kok’s work is about paring down his layouts to their simplest elements of line and form. He does this to great effect in the comics and zines he creates with their clean and clear boards but also in his other illustration projects such as editorial and designs for apparel.
Recent graduate, Michael Parkin’s rough marks and charmingly imperfect edges lend a gritty, hand-made style to the sequential illustrations he creates. We take a look at some of his comics and other projects as he tells us about the process he goes through while making them.
We first featured the pencil illustrations of Josephin Ritchel a couple of years ago when the intricacy in the detailing caught our eye. Since then, she has been busy honing her work and producing some great images, as well as exhibiting in Europe and the US.
The work of New York-based Chinese illustrator, Dingding Hu is full of tongue-in-cheek characters going about their business in humorous scenes. Her work pokes fun at the world around her in warm, vibrant colours and charming line work.
