This is the latest finished illustration I’ve been working on. Trying out watercolours as a new medium but my experiments have been a little bit of hit and miss with the colour blends so I dropped it into Photoshop to undo alot of my amateur watercolour work. It’s also the first illustration I’ve left in pencil, I usually ink the drawing before applying colour as my pencil work can tend to be quite messy.
I recently ordered “Naive: Modernism and Folklore in Contemporary Graphic Design” for a friend’s birthday and in the end I fell in love with it and had to get a copy for myself too.
The cover illustrator is Pietari Posti, a Finnish illustrator, graphic designer and artist currently based in Barcelona, Spain. Absolutely adore this piece. You can check out the rest of his work here.
This lady has knocked my socks off.
Christina is an accomplished artist and illustrator based in Canada. She’s illustrated for countless major editorial publications around the world from BusinessWeek to Playboy to ‘O’ The Oprah Magazine. Her work is just gorgeous, I absolutely adore her linework and use of vintage comic book palettes.
As well as being a successful illustrator, Christina has also created a brilliant online web resource “Drawing for Dollars” where she regularly posts articles about freelancing and how to make your way as an illustrator. Pure gold for anyone starting out in the creative industry.
