Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 18, 2013
Originally published on January 4th, 2013: The great website Empty Kingdom found a good one in the sketchbook art of Estonian artist, Anton Vill. A great mix of both a lowbrow style and incredible craft, Vill's work reminds us of the sketchbook of one of the great animated movies you would find from European production company. Come to think of it, maybe its been Vill the whole time...

Gerhard Human's Skateboarders

Illustration // Tuesday, 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.
