Chris Ware does Animation

Illustration // Monday, May 28, 2012
There’s no question Chris Ware’s work appeals heavily to a desire for buy-able products of today that hearken back to a vintage period in American advertising. He is one of the top artists able to do something with those nostalgic aesthetics. His first forays into animation–for National Public Radio’s televised This American Life– work perfectly within the show’s context. Ware has a talent for observation done in his certain small, sad mode by bringing a certain aesthetic touch to a small story.

Mark Dean Veca

Illustration // Saturday, May 26, 2012
'Mark Dean Veca is a purveyor of prehistoric magic: creating space on a two-dimensional plane with a few lines of charcoal, ink or paint. He draws on paper, canvas or walls and uses simple black lines to manifest volume, space and depth. He shares his illusionary worlds and characters to express the internal and external tension of the human condition as he experiences it. His work is visceral and carnal with its depictions of organs and orifices and writhing tendons and intestines.'

Illustration // Friday, May 25, 2012
If you ever read Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark as a child, then you too, may be haunted to this day by the ghastly illustrations they contained, and how much fun it was read them under the sheets. The drawing by artist Stephen Gammell brought the words by Alvin Schwartz to horrific life, and we suspect are a large part of why it was the most frequently challenged book for library banning from 1990-1999.

Tim McDonagh Illustration

Illustration // Friday, May 25, 2012
Tim McDonagh spent his younger years growing up in a rural part of America, surrounded by rattlesnakes and snapping turtles which in turn led to his fascination of animals.

In Pastel and in Sickness

Illustration // Thursday, May 24, 2012
The work of Japanese artist ? (Hi) is nothing short of mesmerizing. The illustrations and completed works are rendered digitally, leaving dreamy, ill looking young men, clad in an explosion of pastel geometric fireworks, bruises and pattern work- as if stuck in some bizarre dream state after waking up from a beautiful plague induced coma. Gore-gous.

Natsuki Otani Illustration

Illustration // Wednesday, May 23, 2012
'I have a style that is best described in colour and realised in detailed design. Bold vibrant colour forms the basis of a working practice that seeks to unite dreams and reality. I try to give the viewer a feast of colour and complexity, my surreal macabre touches are the counterpoint to my sweet and childlike innocent subjects.' Natsuki Otani is a Tokyo born illustrator working in England.
