Veronique Meignaud's Otherworldly Life Forms

Illustration // Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Veronique Meignaud has taken her training in art school, working for video game designers and in the fashion world and put it all into her art.  And with astounding use of color.  The sense of Sci-Fi technology affecting the (also Sci-Fi) subjects in her pieces is one of my favorite characteristics as it seems so 21st century to me.  And I love artists who are trying to build upon the histories that lay behind them.

Alexander and the Art of Alienation

Illustration // Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Alexander Tinei’s paintings are related to his youth growing up in Eastern Europe (he was born in 1967) where his subjects are marked with haunting blue tattoos.  These blue tattoos are, as Tinei says, marks of alienation.  Whether they’re imagined by their subjects or truly existing on the skin is up to the viewer.

Angie Wang, the Ultimate Illustratress

Illustration // Monday, April 01, 2013
Angie Wang has a brilliant imagination. The worlds and visions that she creates in her comics and illustrations are marvelous creations full of color and mystique.  I’ve always been a fan. Angie got her start early on imagining things by pretending the periodic table and a world map were actually video games. She started drawing because of a knockoff Sailor Moon pillowcase that she copied over and over...

Alessandra Maria's Visceral Explorations

Illustration // Monday, April 01, 2013
I first became aware of Alessandra Maria’s artwork when she emailed me on November 1st, 2011.  She only had three pieces of finished artwork on her Tumblr but from those three pieces I was more than able to tell that she was a talented individual who, at twenty years old, was well on her way to becoming one of the best artists around...

Steve Kim's Modern Art  

Illustration // Monday, April 01, 2013
Steve Kim is a mystery.  Both in the depth of his creativity and also, I’m not entirely sure where he came from  (I mean metaphorically - he’s from Seoul, South Korea).  He’s seemingly always been around.  Not that I mind though because during the years of curating Supersonic, Steve and I have become great friends and his insights into art and design have been enlightening and honest... 

Mike Mitchell's Super Pop

Illustration // Monday, April 01, 2013
Mike Mitchell and I first interacted on the wonderfully named website “Eat Poo” back in the early ‘00s.  The site was a forum of young and incredibly talented artists who were notorious for being harsh critics and distancing themselves from any artist that wasn’t up to par.  (Some of you may recall what I’m talking about).  Somehow Mike and I made the cut and we’ve been friends ever since...

Seventeen year old Kate Powell is an illustrator from West Yorkshire, England. Drawing in mostly pencil, Powell seeks inspiration from nature and the human body, creating fairy tales with floating flowers and colorful, vibrant birds, "I value imagination and emotion over rationality". Always being the shy kid growing up, drawing has given Powell confidence and boldness...   

Pencil Illustrations by Gavin O'Donnell

Illustration // Saturday, March 30, 2013
At the young age of twenty Gavin O'Donnell creates highly realistic illustrations with just a pencil. Drawing from the age of thirteen O'Donnell was greatly encouraged by his aunt who he'd visit in England. Returning back to Ireland O'Donnell couldn't put the pencil down, "I didn't stop drawing for a few years I must of created over a hundred drawings. I look back on a lot of these now and feel like vomiting but they were necessary to get to where I am now"...
