These amazing splashes of color, are actually hand-drawn! With pencil. Wow! Australian artist CJ Hendry is an Instagram phenomenon, sketching detailed hyper-realistic images. For this colorful series she uses just pencil, but she also used pen and ink for her previous, famous black & white series.
I just love this Illustration called “Trump Wave”! Created by A. Richard Allen for The Sunday Telegraph Money section, it won the Best Editorial Illustration and is also the overall winner for this year’s V&A Illustration Awards. The illustration, referencing to Hokusai’s iconic painting “Great Wave off Kanazawa”, addresses the two most pressing political concerns of our time – migration and the Trump presidency.
Lauren Hom is a designer, illustrator, and letterer based in Brooklyn, New York. She has developed a unique type style that’s crisp and clean, yet whimsical and handmade, with bright color palettes and playful letterforms. Her work has been an inspiration for my own lettering style.
Love these typographically illustrated maps by the celebrated graphic designer Paula Scher. Scher began painting these obsessively detailed, highly personal creations in the early 1990s and were recently published as a book.
