Gerhard Human's Skateboarders

December 17, 2013

Gerhard Human is an illustrator based in Cape Town, South Africa. Gerhard Human works in the animation industry, and the influence of motion graphics leaks into his illustrations in a multitude of ways. These drawings are dynamic and dripping with narrative power, rendered with the bright limited palette and flat linework of traditional 2D cartoons. His series of Skateboard Suspects is particularly telling of his skills in character design. We love the range of urban attitudes described by these sketchy skaters.
