Lennard Kok’s work is about paring down his layouts to their simplest elements of line and form. He does this to great effect in the comics and zines he creates with their clean and clear boards but also in his other illustration projects such as editorial and designs for apparel.
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.
If you happen to be in Tokyo anytime soon, it’s well worth keeping an eye out for some particularly lovely Scandinavian design. Finnish illustrator and designer, Leena Kisonen creates charming pattern-based designs for various products with a flair that seems to be particularly popular in Japan.
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.

To find out more about exactly what this ongoing community process is, we had a little chat with Lisa herself.
