Timelessness is surely one of the most sought-after characteristics that any artist, writer or musician can aim for in their work. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that what felt good a generation ago still holds true to this day; perhaps even better to know that what made one tick as a child still draws […]

By Ilana Kohn in New Illustration on Thursday 5 February 2009

Presented as a tableau of vignettes, the work of UK illustrator Jody Barton is executed in a variety of techniques and mediums, yet manages to run the gamut from delicately bold watercolors, to thoroughly noir black and white ink drawings, to child-like, and endearing, colored pencil scribbles.

There’s a wonderful cheekiness and sense of visual mischievousness about the illustration work of UK-based Jonathan Burton, who counts Time magazine and Saatchi & Saatchi amongst a slew of high profile clients.

By Zolton in New Illustration on Monday 8 December 2008

London illustrator Simon Brader’s work is innovative and full of topical innuendo. I love his colour choices in particular, the soft watery washes blending energetically with the more stubborn, edgy textures.

UK illustrator Izzie Klingels creates the loveliest, delicate black and white stippled drawings that she seems to find a myriad of endless applications for. Most interestingly, Klingels appears to do quite a large amount of work within the fashion industry, something of a minor coup for an illustrator in this day and age.

UK illustrator Ken Goodall makes lovely multimedia paintings. I really enjoy the built up layers and thought that clearly goes into deciding how and what to utilize in the execution of each and every element, and the whimsical feeling that results.

By Kate Barnett in New Illustration on Sunday 24 August 2008

Bath based Lucy Oldfield has just moved onto a Canal boat — a risky move for an illustrator whose art is based on delicate linework. Luckily it hasn’t affected her steady hand. Her work is beautifully constructed with a fine eye for feminine detailing. She’s currently working on greeting cards, having previously worked for the […]

Ilana Kohn Reader Find

By Ilana Kohn in New Illustration on Wednesday 28 May 2008

Stephen Ledwidge is an illustrator based in the UK. In that he is a primarily figurative illustrator who actually models and renders his figures in paint, he seems to be somewhat of a wonderful anomaly.

Tim Lee’s illustrations are wonderfully intricate and precise, a tangled world of escapism and realism mixed into one.
