Julee Rieu’s delicate drawings full of detail are set in a soft palette and filled with a host of curious creatures and people. We especially like the way in which she handles her shading, lending a precise hand to patches of stippling.
From expertly precise linear drawings, Nicolas Castell orchestrates huge scenes. They are a delight to look over with enjoyable details dotted across the board.
As Nicolas talks more about below, he tries to recapture the sense of fun his art brought him growing up. He has early memories of building imagined worlds in his illustrations, and the joy that they brought him.
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.
In strong blocks of colour in pencil, print, and paint, Thomas Colligan creates dynamic compositions with a striking impact.
A newly self-published book from Peter James Field reflects on the people and places he has experienced over the last 10 years in an elegant yet darkly humorous visual journal.
When Peter James Field began sketching down his daily thoughts and everyday occurrences, he never would have guessed that his visual diary would still be going strong a decade later. 10 years since its beginning, Peter has put together a beautifully bound compilation to mark the anniversary of this immense project.
In the cheerfully colourful illustrations by Laura Callaghan, sumptuous patterns are placed edge to edge with one another. This creates a rich look thick with details to pour over.
When Laura creates her work, she really gives her viewers a treat. Every inch is full of bright, decorative elements, from the counter top of a diner to an unassuming vase or curtain in the background.
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.
