Joyous characters fill every inch of the illustrated world that Gomez creates. Their happy, smiling faces bring colour and light-hearted humour to the various children’s books and editorial work that she puts her creative stamp on.
Back in 2013, we featured Benoit Tardif’s work after being drawn in by its balance of simplicity with grittiness and energy. Eager to see more, we thought we would check out some his recent additions to his portfolio and see how his work has been developing.
Alexandra Pichard’s characters are sweet and beautifully drawn. They have a wonderful, delicate feel to them as well as a light and appealing humour. We take a look at some of them in action in picture books and more.
There’s a vibrancy and energy to Nick Iluzada’s work that charges off the page and pulls you in. We really enjoy the neon colours, dynamic compositions, and inventive character design that he brings together in his engaging illustrations.
PuĆ±o creates books and drawings, and gives talks and workshops. But more importantly, his illustrations are oodles of fun, always brimming to the edges with enjoyably silly characters.
In the children’s book and other illustrations he makes, and exhibitions he takes part in, PuĆ±o’s work moves between super clean vector designs to looser collage with a more intuitive style.
Thick swathes of pencil shading fill Alessandra De Cristofaro’s work with rich colour. Her well-crafted, interesting scenes perfectly compliment the humorous characters she puts in them
We really enjoy Alessandra’s character designs and her playfulness with the narratives she creates. But as greatĀ as the focus of her illustrations are, we also get pulled into the backgrounds in her work.
Sam Taylor’s upfront sense of humour pairs perfectlyĀ with his bold drawing style and acidic colours. We take a look at his creepy, bloody, and ultimately brilliant swarms of characters.
Sam has a way of making trawling through eye-popping zombies and colourful entrails a whole lot of fun. His work is filled with trippy colours and all the gross-out silliness of the Garbage Pail Kids of the ’80s.
