Ale Mercado IllustrationIllustration // Tuesday, 03 Dec 2013
Ale Mercado's artwork is largely influenced by the bold, tactile aesthetic of traditional relief printing. He translates this look into this digital work "to a point that they've become almost interchangeable." He recently adopted the term "digicut" to describe this particular genre, a crossing of hand-made and computer-generated. Mercado is a member of Illustrators Ireland and The Association of Illustrators.
