With its thick, confident lines and layouts of organised shapes, you might think that Martina Paukova’s process involves a lot of careful drafting. But she talks to us about how she likes to keep a looser approach to the start of her projects.
We’ve previously featured Marta Monteiro’s work, having been really taken with her use of layers and colour. Two years on, we take a look at how she has developed her style as she talks to us about the need to experiment with new techniques.
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.
Portraits by¬†Cristina Polop are characterised by remarkably drawn details, luscious colours, and a creative mixture of drawing methods.
If the level of technical skill and realism achieved in Cristina’s work wasn’t enough, her editing and addition of mixed media make her images distinctly original.
Distinctively styled figures¬†and dappled textures give Beth Walrond’s illustrations a¬†nicely individual character. From their block-like hands to their almost cubic frames, Beth draws every shape in her work from her own, creative perspective.
Gwendoline Blosse’s¬†digital¬†illustrations use line and limited colour palettes to create minimalist¬†images with a big impact.
Breaking down drawings into the bare essentials, carefully considered marks and use of negative space make her¬†work come across as bold as well as composed.
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.
