Intuitive marks, collected and torn paper, paint, and charcoal are all part of the organic process that Grace Alexandra Russell goes through to create her emotive images. She takes us through the various, interesting stages of her work.
Sam Glynn’s process involves paying close attention to colour and texture, and moving between different programs to get the desired effect. The resulting images are bold but also have some really nice variations in atmosphere and tone.
Italian illustrator, Davide Bonazzi combines thoughtful symbolism worked into his compositions with considered drawings and painterly textures. Here are just a few of the narratives he creates in his engaging images.
Giving the feel of vintage newsprint, Martyna Wójcik adds roughened up textures to her angular drawings. We take a look at the rich surfaces she creates.
While the found textures that Martyna uses already add a nice aesthetic to her work on their own, we also really like the interesting way that she uses them.
Marta Orzel has a creative and particularly original technique for handling line, form, and texture. Her wonderful illustrations are arrangements of cleverly layered pieces that come together beautifully.
What we possibly find most striking about Marta’s work is the balance she is able to achieve between the bold and elaborate. While her work always has a richness in the different surfaces she creates using a mixture of media, she knows where to embellish and where to go for strong, solid forms.
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.
Raj Dhunna’s drawing process involves carefully selecting materials that help adjust his approach to one best suited to each illustration’s specific purpose. He talks to us about how having the right tools can inform the work you create.
