After watching the David Lynch series, ‘Twin Peaks’, illustrator Holly Wales was inspired to create this set of gorgeous illustrations. I can’t stop looking at the perfectly balanced, refined shapes and alkaline colours. Great consideration has been taken over the contrasting textures and matte areas in what Holly describes as a series produced in order to explore ideas about how narrative affects the way images are presented separately, rather than as whole, complete scenes.
As an artist, Holly doesn’t restrict herself to just her commercial work, as impressive as it is, having worked for BBC, Design Week, Fallon, Urban Outfitters, and many newspapers and magazines.
She also teaches regularly and has been involved with and taught at more than one university. Obviously being one who likes to stay busy, she set up OPEN last year, a London-based studio for illustrators, which also offers support and opportunities for others working in the industry.
Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming review of OPEN in the near future.
