Illustrations of Martin Dasnoy

Martin Dasnoy’s illustrations have a mesmerizing quality that I have found very easy on the eye. Coupled with the exaggerated proportions used in many of his pieces, you would be forgiven if you thought you had been absorbed into an extremely vivid day dream.

Martin, who is from Buenos Aires, has always liked drawing, but never found the time or will to do it. Over the years, his discovery of various tools that allowed him to work digitally made him more willing to engage his creativity.

The first thing Martin looks for in an illustration is how he can make an impact. ‘Apart from the ‘stylized’ nature of the drawings, I look for a pose that interests me; that helps me communicate the illustration’s idea and purpose.’ The ‘composition, rhythm and grace‘ of the illustration are the most important ingredients of his work.

‘I like to try different techniques, styles, palettes. I try not to restrict myself with only certain tools if they don’t help me reach the purpose of my work. I always try to add texture to the illustration to avoid that typical vector illustration that alludes a lot to a digital piece of work, and even though I work digitally, I don’t like that kind of look and that’s why I try to add imperfections’.

I asked Martin about his plans for the future:

Hmm, I don’t know. Even though I work a lot with animation, graphics and designs, illustrating isn’t my main source of income, so I have the freedom to let the moment, my desire and inspiration take me wherever they want to go‘.

MoonApe wishes Martin all the best!
