Chris Silver's Portrait Process

Illustration // Thursday, December 06, 2012
'I found that soft wax was a wonderful way to blend tones, it softens the work and has a vague quality about it. Start off by working with pencils, spill your tea over it, wait for it to dry then work into it with soft wax. Scratching into the wax creates highlights, which you will be able to see on some parts of the hair. Wax is really fun but so messy so be prepared, I would also suggest working with different colours...'

Often times this creative output reflects direct representations of buildings and monuments, while other times its the smaller things that catch her eye, like that little squirrel she saw.

Ed Savage's Comics

Illustration // Thursday, December 06, 2012
The comics of Ed Savage seem to start out mundane and innocent, but somehow, unexpectedly, always end in a bloodbath of fantastical pain and gore. I'm not sure what this all means but I kind of like it. Perfectly fitting for an artist with the last name of Savage- well done Ed. Be sure to check out the rest of his illustration portfolio as well- full of treasures.

The Artwork of Mika Nitta

Illustration // Wednesday, December 05, 2012
Amazing illustrative work by the Japanese artist Mika Nitta that I know nothing about. However, with this kind of intricacy, attention to detail and the solid composition and palette that she portrays in her work, all you need to know is that it speaks for itself. Beautiful new find, keep it up young one.
