Folklore and Magick: Glyn Smith Illustration

Illustration // Wednesday, June 06, 2012
'Whether it's designing an album cover, drawing a t-shirt or printing a poster, I take influence from a wide variety of sources, both ancient and modern. In particular, I find myself drawn to imagery and themes prevalent in the worlds of folklore, magick and Forteana, as well as more classical influences. I use a range of techniques encompassing both traditional and digital media, but also enjoy the art of printmaking, particularly screenprinting.' Glyn Smith

Richey Beckett Illustration

Illustration // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
'I can’t stress enough just how important the preparation is, sometimes. I’ll spend more time on that than the illustration. I’ll create collage sheets for each project, either for reference or just a collection of imagery that has the right feel and atmosphere, and then I’ll surround myself with that whilst I work. Symbolism is not only important, but also interesting, and I enjoy using a project as a catalyst to discover new things...' Richey Beckett
