In her exhibition, ‘Cat Island’, as a ‘Pick Me Up Selects’ artist for Pick Me Up earlier this year, Jessica Das took us to a place filled with pop-out colours and (of course) cats.
Recent graduate, James Fisher’s work has a an easy going drawing style and a playful cheekiness in it that we really like. He tells us about his techniques that focus on drawing. His final illustrations keep the initial sketchy style without being over worked in the process.
Lennard Kok’s work is about paring down his layouts to their simplest elements of line and form. He does this to great effect in the comics and zines he creates with their clean and clear boards but also in his other illustration projects such as editorial and designs for apparel.
We’re really taken with the thoughtful illustrations by Italian illustrator, Andre Mongia. His ideas are already intriguing, but the materials he works with give them an added atmosphere and emotive quality.
Glasgow-based, Felix Whitlock is an illustrator who is not known to shy away from strong colours. He confidently fills his images with lime greens, intense purples, and neon pinks. His bold use of these colours immediately grabbed our attention and demanded a closer look.
Eero Lampinen’s work is populated with intriguing characters in curious settings. Apart from being pulled into these scenes by his effortless drawing style and distinctive colour schemes, he has a talent for drawing you in with his imaginative situations and subtle fantasy.
After having worked for some time on commissions for clients, Eline Van Dam aka Zeloot decided to focus on areas of art that resonate a little closer to home. She now spends most of her time creating imagery for music events that she herself is involved in.
