Janne Iivonen is particularly good at constructing complete scenes with a whole scattering of interesting elements¬†to take in and multiple characters playing out their roles. They’re especially engaging for the generous amount of detail he treats us to.
Movement and dynamism drive Michael Byers’ illustrations along at top speed. There is always so much to take in and discover in his work, it’s a joy to follow the chaotic dances his characters often find themselves in.
Kevin Whipple takes his inky drawings and presents them in clever arrangements of just a few select colours. The balance of the drawing and the colour¬†aspects of his work gives his editorial images great contrast as well as a graphical boldness.
We really like the light and free-flowing drawing style of Elisa Macellari. Peppered with fine, linear details, she creates enjoyable worlds decorated with patterned fauna.
Elisa is a Milan-based Thai-Italian illustrator, and describes herself as someone who likes “colorful things, wild animals, jungles, mysterious creatures,¬†strange objects and tom yum soup.”
Ji Hyun Yu is a Frankfurt-based illustrator from Seoul. Her work is filled with crowds of colourful characters and can be seen in publications such as The New York Times and Plansponsor.
Brilliant jumbles of shapes, patterns and colours assemble into the eccentric characters created by Italian illustrator Fonzy Nils. We take a look at a few of them while he walks us through his drawing process.
Julienne Mei Tan is a Korean-Cambodian illustrator and printmaker, and studied Illustration in New York before moving to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where she is now based.
We really enjoy the way she brings her print making experience into her illustrations, and her gorgeous use of colour.
