There’s a beautiful tenderness that Aimee Bee Brooks infuses into her illustrations. Her delicate pencil drawings¬†are light and emotive, and almost carry a¬†sense of warming nostalgia like an old, cherished photograph.
William Davey’s work is a collected scattering of intense, energetic marks, and blocks of texture and bright colours. We dive into a bunch of his sketchbooks and see how his observations feed his final images.
Movement and dynamism drive Michael Byers’ illustrations along at top speed. There is always so much to take in and discover in his work, it’s a joy to follow the chaotic dances his characters often find themselves in.
Leandro Castelao talks to us about his process and gives us some interesting insights on how the act of making in itself is an important stage in generating ideas. We take a look at his slick digital designs as he discusses this and more.
In layers of rich printed textures and painted marks that sometimes barely touch the page, Luca Di Battista creates illustrations with tactility and depth. And with interesting ideas and playful use of narrative, it makes for a strong body of editorial images.
Atelier Antoine Corbineau’s map designs bring the city streets alive in glorious splatters of decorated forms and vibrant colours. We take a look at a few examples as well as some of his other equally vitalising work.
Creating depth in pools of gorgeous inks,¬†Astrid Linn√©a Andersson masterfully handles the swirls and bleeds of colour to create drawings that are vibrant and expressive.
The interesting nature of¬†Astrid’s work is in the constant play between opposing forces that seem to be tentatively held together on the page. Rich inks move freely and unpredictably, but are reigned into line, forcing a distinguishable structure out from the chaos.
