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.
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.
Jacckrit Anantakul is a Bangkok-based graphic designer and illustrator who has become known for his experimental typography and tongue-in-cheek imagery. The humour and multitude of bizarre characters in his work make a nice counterpoint to the clean, geometric aesthetic he uses.
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.
‘The Doodle Project’ has amassed quite the momentum over the near 10 years that it has been going. The project has had contributions from hundreds of artists over that time and led to two books being published by the founder, Lisa Currie, so far. To find out more about exactly what this ongoing community process is, we had a little chat with Lisa herself.
Sydney-based illustrator, Nancy Liang builds on her love of dioramas and nighttime scenes in her atmospheric illustrations. By collecting paper with various different qualities and working in graphite, Nancy constructs her tranquil and somewhat eerily quiet townscapes.
We really enjoy taking a peek through the sketchbooks of Gerard Armengol for their randomness and eccentricity. They give us an insight into a very spontaneous collection of thoughts and finds. Collaged imagery accompany actual found objects and colourful, and pretty cheeky, pencil drawings.
