The Work of Jon Burgerman

Illustration // Friday, October 09, 2015
British-born, Brooklyn-based artist Jon Burgerman, often referred to as the “Doodle King,” recently sent us some sketches of his latest illustrations. More than a decade ago, in a brief moment of dismissiveness, the artist referred to his work as ‘doodles.’ 

Illustrations by Hilda Palafox

Illustration // Thursday, October 08, 2015
Hilda Palafox, “Poni”, is on of those illustrators whose drawings could be a poem. She grew up and is based in Mexico City, she has an bachelor’s degree in Integral Design and since 2006 has been spreading her beautifully crafted dolls around her home country.

The Work of Elisa Malo

Illustration // Tuesday, October 06, 2015
In the depths of a person’s stare, if you look very closely, it’s said you’ll manage to see into their soul. For Elisa Malo, Mexico City based illustrator, the souls she finds are the kind you’d wish you’d never dwelled into. Her focus is in the lines of an obsessive compulsive; each drawing, painting or sketch seems to grasp certain attributes or faults of a person’s being in her dramatic naive style.

Paul White's Wasteland Wanderlust

Illustration // Thursday, October 01, 2015
Hollow shells of human transportation take center stage in Paul White's beautiful color pencil drawings. Machines that used to do nothing but move now know only stasis in these portraits of airplanes, trains, and automobiles that have been gutted, defaced and left to decay, never to fly, ride or drive again. A lovely quiet melancholy pervades these works, tragic everyday monuments commemorating a world of human possibility in indefinite inertia. White was born in Sydney, Australia and received his MFA from CalArts Los Angeles.

Illustrator Michal Dziekan Shows His Dark Humor

Illustration // Wednesday, September 30, 2015
We’ve been checking out the dark imagery of Polish illustrator and character designer Michal Dziekan. His background is in film and animation, but in 2011 he changed his focus to still work. He describes his art as “grotesque illustrations with fair dosage of black humor and twisted characters.” He does commercial illustrations, but on his website you can also find uncommissioned work. 

Megan Diddie Illustrates Your Microbiome

Illustration // Wednesday, September 30, 2015
We’ve writen about Megan Diddie’s illustations before—intricate exploration of humans and nature. Lately, she’s created two books — Things Get In You that examines the microbiome and Pollinate/Pollute exploring agriculture. She uses papers made from corn, soy and rye, and the pages are filled with her strange and enchanting imagery.

Robert Schultz: Mind, Spirit, Body

Illustration // Monday, September 28, 2015
Robert Schult's subjects, often reoccurring, are usually depicted nude in austere surroundings with the occasional prop. He begins each drawing with a sketchbook study in red pencil to work out composition and lighting and graduates to his arsenal of finely sharpened pencils to begin the final drawing.

Brazilian Illustration Studio, Bicicleta Sem Freio

Illustration // Tuesday, September 22, 2015
We’ve posted before on Bicicleta Sem Freio—Bike without Brakes—the Brazilian Illustration Studio. Since then, they’ve expanded their aesthetics to cover more than grotesque nudes (though we obviously love those too). They started by illustrating posters for rock and cultural events and have extended their practice to cover a wider range of projects—including street art, billboards, fabrics, and beer labels.

Steve Cutts' Anti-capitalist Illustrations

Illustration // Tuesday, September 22, 2015
Since quitting his job with a firm that illustrated for companies such as Google and Reebok, Steve Cutts has turned a corner with his subject matter, critiquing the very systems which used to employ him. He is now a freelance illustrator, the bulk of his work critiquing the capitalist system, the plunder of the earth’s resources, and our tech-obsessed culture. 

The Fractal Paintings of Gustaf Lillestierna

Illustration // Monday, September 21, 2015
Gustaf Lillestierna is a Swedish artist who paints repetitive images of portraits, recreating a fractal effect through painstaking traditional means. This bizarre crossing of traditional and digital means defies the strictures of process.
