Found a whole pile of outstanding work by Nicolas Burrows – this first one pretty much sums up my life for the past couple years. The top of his page says Illustration but there is a lot of stuff on there that sorta meanders out of that realm. I particularly like his typeset made from discarded pieces of construction paper.
I was absolutely blown away when I came across the work of Andrew Hem while browsing Steve Kim’s site. There aren’t too many illustrators out there with such a wide variety of styles in their arsenal. Some pieces are quite loose and painterly, and others are really crisp and precise.
I said in the previous post Evgeny Kiselev’s illustrations reminded me of James Paterson’s work (which I hadn’t looked at for some time) but I just realised the work on his site right now isn’t really the work I was referring to. This video is more representative of the work that immediately jumped to mind when I first looked at Kiselev’s stuff.
Paterson really became known for his brain hemorrhage inducing flash animations which were often set to the amazing music of K-rad.
I posted about Aaron Noble back in April and was happy to read an email from him recently, letting me know he just updated his website. If I could have any artist paint me a giant mural today, it’d be a toss-up between him and Anthony Lister. I could stare at this stuff all day.
