Illustrations and a Film from Julia Pott

Illustration // Saturday, November 10, 2012
Julia Pott is an illustrator from Brooklyn, NY who "employs awkward animated characters to act out her inner confusions." Something about her layered patterning and lumpy figures makes for a really compelling effect, and because it's the weekend, we threw in a bizarre little short film of hers too. Enjoy!

Gabriel Moreno's Rainbow Illustrations

Illustration // Friday, November 09, 2012
Madrid-based Gabriel Moreno's psychedelic figural images almost read like streams of consciousness. With drastic color gradients and multi-layered imagery that both emerge from and envelop his figures, Moreno creates dreamlike scenes in which his subjects' thoughts seem to bleed through their skin.

Anatomical Illustrations from Roberto Osti

Illustration // Friday, November 09, 2012
Roberto Osti's fantastical anatomical drawings explore intersections between modern science and myth. Interested in how humans might one day reach immortality through cloning or the potential reality of hybrid monsters, Osti's awe-inspiring images merge the visual language of scientific drawing with subjects that reveal the absurd potential of rational science.

Imaginary Maps by Marie Gosselin

Illustration // Friday, November 09, 2012
Freelance graphic designer, illustrator, and sometimes confectioner Marie Gosselin's color pencil drawings unfold as vibrant maps to the fantastical lands of her imagination. Her beautiful dreamscapes take you back to a time of childlike wonder, a world of candy-colored volcanos and purple tigers you can easily get lost in. Gosselin lives in a bakery with her cat Puduc. A graduate of LISAA (Paris) and Saint Luc (Tournai, Belgium), she is currently studying at Gobelins in Paris.

Illustration // Thursday, November 08, 2012
Influenced by 19th century design--and especially textile designer William Morris--Olivia Mew creates fresh and elegant illustrations that lend themselves perfectly to covering fabric, paper, and walls.

Illustrations from White Swallows

Illustration // Thursday, November 08, 2012
White Swallows is a collaborative project between Vancouver-based artists Morgan Spry-Young and Daniel Giantomaso. Exploring polar combinations of masculinity vs. femininity, two-dimensionality vs. three-dimensionality, and embodiment vs. objectification, the pair creates stunning black and white illustrations. This drawing, "Conversation," was their submission to the synaesthesia issue of Strep Throat.

Illustrations from Cecilia Carlstedt

Illustration // Thursday, November 08, 2012
Combining the linear precision of graphite portraits with the gestural dynamism of watercolor, Swedish illustrator Cecilia Carlstedt creates ethereal paintings that maintain visual roots in the boldness of graphic design. Her meticulously controlled ink blots and splashes create a stunning illusion of her subjects flickering in and out of focus before our very eyes.

Illustration // Wednesday, November 07, 2012
With a cartoonish aesthetic and bright, intricate lines, recent MICA grad and illustrator Niv Bavarsky is quickly creating a name for himself. Approaching his illustrations with light-hearted creativity, Bavarsky creates jam-packed images that are totally engrossing.

Andrew Groves' Graphic Illustrations

Illustration // Wednesday, November 07, 2012
London illustrator Andrew Groves' graphic digital illustrations have appeared in everything from GQ to The New Yorker.

Emily Haworth's 'A Children's Series'

Illustration // Wednesday, November 07, 2012
Emily Haworth's sepia-toned drawings seem almost like illustrations from a grim children's story. The stoic children, which resemble similarly creepy Victorian children's portraits, and their placement in strangely proportioned landscapes of toys and Christmas ornaments give the images a collage-y feel, although they were actually created with charcoal and colored pencil!
