Ben Ashton-Bell Reader Find

By Ben Ashton-Bell in New Art on Saturday 5 May 2012

I’m excited to have recently discovered Lwnski. The Melbourne-based illustrator and I are paired up in an upcoming exhibition titled True Self. His bold use of colour, mixed with typography and loose lines, just works. It’s well worth a look at his band posters, too. So cool.

Clever Doodles by Gracki

Jacob Klensin Reader Find

By Jacob Klensin in New Illustration on Thursday 3 May 2012

The doodles created by Gracki are casually done, sometimes carefully thought out stories, showing the ongoing adventures of her own characters. Other times, they are the product of daydreams, wondering what would happen if Rhinos tried to play soccer or how a giraffe would be treated at an amusement park.

By Travis Lawrence in New Design on Monday 30 April 2012

Influenced by the subtle use of symbols, I use the art of printmaking to convey subconscious imagery through the form of multiples. Pulling inspiration from Jungian psychology and mythology, my art presents iconic visuals shrouded in simplistic mystery.

Drawings of Crowds: series by Jess Worby

Chi Birmingham Reader Find

By Chi Birmingham in New Illustration on Thursday 5 April 2012

In his comics and illustrations Jess Worby draws connections between the small moments of absurdity in everyday life and the potential they hold for deeper meaning. In his Crowds drawings, soldiers and businessmen fill the space up to the horizon and give in to anarchic impulses. His comic, A Walk In the Park, plays with the conventions of a classic self discovery narrative in a way that both celebrates and makes light of that tradition.

Wicked illustration work by Fabian Ciraolo

So now I’m telling you. Who else would be mashing up pop culture references, like what looks like Lana Del Rey’s body with Judy Garland as Dorothy and Salvador Dali in a Vampire Weekend tee? I love it.
