Ana Benaroya puts her sense of humour to good work as well as her knack for mixing eye-catching colours in her tongue-in-cheek, joyful work.

Ana’s drawings and paintings are bold and unashamedly bright, as well as having an endearing charm to them. Her unrestricted use of colour pairs beautifully with her cheeky sense of fun, and work well in her animations too. Check out some of her tv work (the ’80s clip is particularly great) while she tells us more about herself.

Jack Taylor is serving up some textured goodness in his screen printed illustrations. Strong compositions and use of simple forms makes for some nice, graphic work.

As well as the weathered surfaces and blocks of colour he creates, we also enjoy Jack’s eye for structure and layout. Especially in his comics, close cropping and bringing the lens right in produces really interesting panels.

Juliana Wang constructs layers of inky drawings into punchy compositions using interesting combinations of colours.

In Juliana’s work, you get a real feel of the brush on the paper. We really like her use of ink and how she builds up the shading and textures by layering up varying marks.

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.
