I've always loved and admired the work of Brooklyn, NY based illustrator Autumn Whitehurst. When asked about her influences, she states, 'Anything refreshingly beautiful is inspiring but I have my old standbys... the things that for so long have been an influence, I know they're deeply engraved into my psyche though I have yet to see them manifest themselves into my work. I love the drawings of George Grosz and Hans Bellmer, as well as Hokusai's sketches and woodblock prints...'

'I love colour. I love the infinite possibilities that are created when different hues are juxtaposed side by side - there's a conversation that happens, during which there's shouting and murmuring. I tend to keep my colour choices very simple because I'm partial to a monochromatic palette with a touch of something in sharp contrast, so as to make that area jump a bit.' —Autumn Whitehurst
