Jim’ll Paint It: Facebook’s most generous member

Francis Andrews Reader Find

By Francis Andrews in New Illustration on Tuesday 2 April 2013

This guy may well be Facebook’s finest, most generous member. Someone who has a bit of extra time on their hands hears users’ descriptions of far-out visions they’ve had that usually involve c-list celebrities caught in embarrassing situations, and renders them in lines, curves and colours using only Microsoft Paint. It’s awesome.

Cyrus Daruwala Reader Find

By Cyrus Daruwala in New Illustration on Friday 29 March 2013

Long flights with a layover. We’ve all been there, hated that. But only Christpher Niemann could manage to bring alive these coma-inducing moments through a riveting visual diary. The key characters of this story include the unreclinable chair, sudden changes of plot (or menu preferences), and the much-envied wailing baby.

Contemplative drawings by Klas Herbert

Ignasi Giro Reader Find

By Ignasi Giro in New Illustration on Monday 28 January 2013

Klas Herbert is a creative Swede living in Barcelona. His drawings are not only visually stunning pieces of art, but also kind of self-describing portraits of his rich, inner world. I’ve known him for several years now. Very few illustrators give so much time and love to one single handmade drawing as he does.

New book full of well designed hate mail

Shaun Lynch Reader Find

By Shaun Lynch in New Products on Friday 14 December 2012

UK illustrator and biting wit, Mr Bingo, decided to keep the tradition of postcard sending alive through touching and thoughtful insults. And who doesn’t love a good dose of swearing and hand-rendered personal attacks arriving on their door mat? If only this service were still running, I’d be shelling out 20 quid to be told I’ll ‘never be as good as Peter Andre’. Luckily the 400 bits of hate mail have now been collated into a lovely book.

Rondal Scott III Reader Find

By Rondal Scott III in New Illustration on Monday 10 December 2012

Full of neon colors and high level detail, the work of Columbian designer-illustrator Andrés Ariza seems to capture a series of moments from the same lucid dream. Clearly inspired by video games as much as geometry, his characters are chaotic – assembling and disassembling themselves at will.
