Back in early 2012, we featured some of the work by Ryan Gillett after being sent a set of his beautifully screen printed postcards. We thought it was about time we caught up with Ryan and took at look at what he’s been up to over the last couple of years and how his illustration style has developed.
As beautiful as Nathan Manire’s ‘Dot Portraits’ are for their blend of soft, pastel shades and rigid structures, they are also intriguing as results of many iterations of his process along the line. We talked to Nathan about this process and other elements of his life as an artist and designer.
The editorial work of John-Patrick Thomas has a strong conceptual basis that we think works really well in building up his thought-out, interesting images. As he goes on to tell us, John-Patrick’s process involves as much emphasis on putting himself in the right frame of mind as it does on the practical side of creating the illustration.
Last summer, we featured the vibrant screen prints of visual artist and freelance designer Saskia Pomeroy. To find out more about her world of colour and pattern, we met up with Saskia and had a chat about her new work and recent multidisciplinary collaborations.
Altelier Bingo is artistic duo Maxime Prou & Adèle Favreau. Together, they collaboratively create these vivid, abstract prints that celebrate colour, and the contrast and balance of a range of mixed media pieces.
Rob Hodgson attacks his characters with playful strikes of colour, splatters of paint, and smears of crayon to maximum effect. His process embraces the natural movement and energy in the roughs and the offcuts.
