We featured Sam Pierpoint’s work back in 2011 when she was already making incredibly detailed and creative images out of paper. We thought it was about time we caught up with Sam and took a look at the work she has been making recently.
With texture-filled silhouettes, Darren Hopes creates strikingly emotive illustrations with a multifaceted toolbox of techniques. He manages to weave the collection of digital and hand-penned marks seamlessly together with apparent ease.
That he often illustrates his own writing, as he goes on to mention below, makes sense given the very narrative quality he seems to have in his approach to his artwork. Simple yet thoughtful compositions are interestingly used as part of the way that he tells the stories in his images.
From procured elements here and there, Katherine Kuhn is able to piece together incredibly glamorous collages full of life and colour. With a taste for the rich and lush when it comes to pattern and texture, Katherine often lays bundles of varying decorative slices together so that they contrast and clash in intriguing ways.
The amount of work you have to put into sourcing new images at the beginning of every project can be tiring for a collage artist, as mixed media illustrator Fraçois Berger tells us. However, we’re glad that it is something that he does put in the legwork for, as we really like the eclectic mixed style it results in.
There’s an almost audible breeze that chills the air across the hollow landscapes in which Martynas Pavilonis’ illustrations take place. He has a knack for creating scenes that are full of atmosphere and tension as well as being stylish and super sleek.
Oriol Vidal is a Barcelona-based illustrator who had, up until recently, mostly focused on children’s books and storyboarding. In a new body of work he has been developing, Oriol blends different techniques to come up with something fresh and interesting.
Joachim Sperl’s mischievous collages piece together an abundance of colours and images with tongue firmly in cheek. Explosions of tiny figures are carefully arranged into abstract and pretty trippy compositions. Expect animal heads and the odd naughty body part!
