Josh Holinaty’s art has bundles of grit in every part of his illustrations, even down to the smallest details. He talks to us about satisfying the need to get hands on with his materials as we look at how this results in the weight and depth in his work.
Felicita Sala’s work is full of life and colour, and given depth by the way she uses her materials. Felicita talks to us about her technique and the road that brought her to working in freelance illustration after having started on a completely different career path.
Juliana Wang constructs layers of inky drawings into punchy compositions using interesting combinations of colours.
In Juliana’s work, you get a real feel of the brush on the paper. We really like her use of ink and how she builds up the shading and textures by layering up varying marks.
Get lost in the delicately illustrated watercolour foliage by Vikki Chu. But don’t let your guard down, there’s a host of creatures in there, and teeth and claws too!
Vikki’s work is rich with detail, filling her images with glorious flora and fun fauna. We really like her inky marks, but she’s just as good with a pencil or working digitally.
Dynamic figurative drawing, beautiful textures and a strong narrative are all things you can expect to find in the illustration by Miko Maciaszek.
Looking at the studies in his sketchbooks, you can tell that Miko is interested in the figure and finding an expressive way to describe it. It really shows in his illustrations, in the interesting poses and compositions he comes up with.
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.
