New work from Nigel Sutcliffe

Nigel Sutcliffe Reader Find

By Nigel Sutcliffe in New Illustration on Thursday 17 November 2011

Combining my studies in Graphic Design and traditional drawing, I made the natural progression to illustration in 2009. Inspired by artists such as Sam Weber, Jeremy Fish, the Hanuka brothers, Edward Kinsella, and Ian Francis, my work falls somewhere between semi-realism and comic. I communicate ideas through a mash up of watercolour, vector, and graphite.

BLOW UP: featuring Hanuka, Shimizu, Weber

Yuko Shimizu Reader Find

By Yuko Shimizu in New Events on Thursday 2 September 2010

Three illustrators from vastly different backgrounds — Sam Weber (Canada), Yuko Shimizu (Japan), and Tomer Hanuka (Israel) — are meeting at the crossroads of a distinct American aesthetic to examine their new-found artistic voices through personal mythologies, broken narratives and remixed identities. Each of the illustrators featured as part of BLOW UP (running at New York’s Society of Illustrators until October 16) created new works to be shown for the first time in this exhibition.

Illest of Ill illustration book

Ilana Kohn Reader Find

By Ilana Kohn in New Illustration on Wednesday 21 October 2009

Those amazing illustration seniors from The Ringling School have outdone themselves with their beautifully designed book, Illest of Ill. The book was created with the intention of selling it to raise funds for their senior show. They contacted various illustrators and asked them to contribute an illustration based on the classic Gibson Girl or Arrow Shirt Man (myself included). The book includes some fantastic work from illustrators Sam Weber, Nathan Fox, George Pratt and Sterling Hundley, among so, so many others.

There’s some awesome new work up on New York-based illustrator, Sam Weber’s website, including this one above which is did for the Soulpepper Theatre. We asked him a little while back about what his studio workspace was like: ‘I am fairly particular about where I like to work, and what sort of stuff I like to have around me. There are things that I look at often — a book of Max Ernst collages, one on Yoshitaka Amano, and a big stack of clippings from magazines and the Internet that I will periodically leaf through to get inspired’.

Inside Sam Weber’s studio

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Tuesday 5 August 2008

We caught up with New York-based artist Sam Weber recently to get the inside word on where most of his creativity is unleashed: his studio space. In regards to your workspace, what are the props for your daily inspiration? ‘I wouldn’t say there is anything specific, although I am fairly particular about where I like to work, and what sort of stuff I like to have around me. There are things that I look at often, a book of Max Ernst collages, one on Yoshitaka Amano, and a big stack of clippings from magazines and the Internet that I will periodically leaf through to get inspired’.

Sam Weber illustrates Bjork

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Illustration on Friday 4 April 2008

I love Sam Weber’s illustration of Bjork. It captures the mischievous twinkle that seems omnipresent in her eyes whilst also presenting her in an environment which pays homage to her somewhat mystical musical approach. [more about Sam Weber]

A name by any other rose

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Illustration on Monday 1 October 2007

A lot of people have asked us where the name Lost At E Minor comes from and what the phrase implies. Well, several years ago I came across a compilation of obscure electro music called Famous When Dead, which is off the commendably experimental German label, Playhouse. One of the tracks on the album was by the production duo, Light Fantastic, and was titled Lost At C Minor.
