Emilio Barnes aka Ultrafry is an artist from London specializing in black and white handcrafted pattern design, characters and lettering.

Will Yackulic uses typewriters, watercolors, india ink and gouache to render otherworldly landscapes occasioned by spheroid forms which he terms "outposts."

Hilary White's 'The Endless One'

Illustration // Thursday, July 04, 2013
'Making the work feels like everything I want to communicate. Every cut out or painted piece a word beyond dialect or nationality, a universal visual language of sorts, and in a way that is what The Endless One is about. Opening up on a very human level about or beliefs, our pasts, our present, where we are going, and how we can continue moving forward in a more connected, and loving way. (…) My hope is that all people will connect with the work visually to begin their own conversations about belief, life and death, our struggles, victories… this is what connects people…the differences.' - Hilary White on her series, The Endless One. Hilary White is a multidisciplinary artist based in Philadelphia.

Art by Luke Pelletier

Illustration // Wednesday, July 03, 2013
We recently covered LA's "Tonight, We Fight!" an exhibit curated by Luke Pelletier, whose work deserves its own post. Playful, fresh and unique, Pelletier creates art that is as much illustration as it is design, employing bold shapes of oranges and pastels to highlight creepy-cute characters. Leopards, reapers, alligators and skulls populate his work, expressing patterns and imagery we'd love to have on our canvas sneakers and skateboards as well as framed on a wall. Pelletier currently lives in Chicago. 

The Illustrations of Sam Taylor

Illustration // Wednesday, July 03, 2013
Sam Taylor's artwork is not for the polite of heart. Drawing from the lumpy, brash aesthetic of cartoons like The Simpsons and Ren and Stimpy, Taylor presents critical and often tongue-in-cheek subject matter in a deceptively childish style. Fittingly, Taylor often illustrates for Vice and mastheads art collectives like Simpsons Drawing Club. Taylor was born in Leicester, studied in Camberwell and lives in London currently.
