We caught up with Australian-born, New York-based illustrator, Edwina White, recently. What have you been obsessing about lately outside of illustration? ‘Where does it end? I have been obsessing about curled celery, Ginger Syrup with champagne, about an A Detacher dress, old science charts and Third Drawer Down goodies’.
We’ve featured Sam Weber’s work on numerous occasions, so it was good to finally track him down for an interview, asking him first up how immersed he is in the New York art scene.
We checked in recently with New York based Argentinean illustrator, Fernanda Cohen. How’s the illustration scene in New York at the moment? ‘Over crowded, sometimes repetitive and predictable, but there are always jewels here and there. I believe most of the emerging stars in the illustration field in the past few years came out of New York, mostly SVA graduates’.
Tomer Hanuka’s post-apocalyptic visions are imbued with a real sense of pathos. His characters seem at once emboldened and vulnerable, wrestling demons cloaked in shades of blue, red and green.
