Inspired by science fiction, classic cinema, and modern design aesthetics, Edward Tuckwell’s work is full of graphic shapes in striking compositions. Although working in a variety of mediums, he most often uses digital and screen printing processes to create his bold work.
Jordan Carter works with a creative combination of realistic pencil drawings and bold, graphic shapes. He pairs the two together to make images that are delicate yet punchy.
It would be fair to say that most illustrators fall into either the realistic or more stylised categories. So seeing someone that works in a way that has them sitting comfortably in both is intriguing and immediately draws you in.
Elena Boils‘ work plays with a beautiful contrast between areas adorned with patterns and strong, simple forms. While she uses bold, geometric designs for a typically more digital look, she also manages to retain a nice printed feel as well.
Patrick Saville treats us to an assortment of surreal polyhedrons and stylish, glitchy graphics in his futuristically-styled illustrations.
Patrick’s work embraces the look of 3D rendering and other digital imagery but is experimental in the way that it is used. Repeated forms and saturated colours hint at the kind of visuals we might see from corrupted computer files or internet loading errors, creating a playful modern look.
Seeking out and embracing the imperfect has given the work of Hungarian illustrator, Borbála Tompa a tactile feel with its beauty in the rough edges.
Borbála’s work is all about mastering the unpolished finish and keeping the sense of expressive, intuitive decision making in her work. She tries to capture the character her paintings have even though the final images are worked digitally.
Multitalented artists, Elzo Durt creates detailed, psychedelic artwork, drawing inspiration from underground culture and the music scene he has become involved in.
Bussels-born Elzo, cites his childhood of skateboarding and punk culture as major influences on the kind of images he creates. His interesting blend of detail and lucid colours has gained him a reputation for band posters and other music-related projects.
Michael Arnold’s work is digitally slick and filled with great pairings of pattern and colour. He goes in depth telling us about his process and materials.
Dots, stripes, and checks, among many other patterns play out in Michaels work with unreserved intensity. We like how he arranges them side by side, having them work together to build up a layered, patterned effect. It’s a strong, graphic style that translates well into products as he goes on to tell us.
