Ryo Takemasa

i don’t think i have ever spent so much time looking at illustrations of vegetables (if only i would spend as much time actually eating them). these wonderful renderings are by Japanese illustrator Ryo Takemasa who has done work for a number of international publications. check out his work at his website & blog. he also has a shop – so you can buy some veggies in print!

Kemi Mai

Kemi Mai is an eighteen year old illustrator from Manchester who i am SUPREMELY JEALOUS OF. this girl can do amazing things with pixels. she makes her art using a tablet and photoshop. she is amazing, check out her work here and here.

My work starts with an idea derived from thoughts or abstract feelings, which I aim to express in a way that also appeals to me atheistically. Colour has become incredibly important to me, it can be so influential in setting the overall tone of the piece. I like to think of the majority of my paintings as visual representations of things that couldn’t exist organically in real life. Whilst an element of realism is important to me, I haven’t ever been interested in depicting a scene that resembles a photograph without a concept. My work isn’t weighted with messages intended to change the world, but it’s something through which I can be honest, and I appreciate that freedom greatly.

Chris Turnham

the modernist feeling in these rad illustrations by the very talented LA based illustrator & printmaker Chris Turnham made me want to watch Mad Men right away. luckily the last season is just around the corner, my pretties.

Sabrina Arnault

there are a few professions / talents in this world that i am always supremely envious of. one is furniture maker slash woodworker (this would be my dream job if anyone ever asks me) and the other is illustrator. it never ceases to amaze me when i come across a talented illustrator whose voice and style are uniquely their own. how do they do it! i say. or sigh, rather. my latest discovery is Sabrina Arnault, a french illustrator based in Montreal.

Sabrina Arnault is a French illustrator who lives in Barcelona Montreal. She works in her little, cosy studio but when sunny days come, she likes to draw on her terrace surrounded by plants and cactuses. All she needs to work are pencils, black ink pens, paper, a ruler, her iMac, a cup of tea and good music. *

images c/o Sabrina Arnault. you can buy her work at Society6. quote c/o Sir.

Eleanor Taylor

i discovered the wonderful work of Brighton based illustrator Eleanor Taylor while catching up with all the goodness over at Design Work Life. the first image of Hawaiian queen Ka’ahumanu really captured my imagination, a piece that Eleanor was commissioned to do for Julia Rothman’s upcoming book The Who, The What and The When: 65 Artists Illustrate the Secret Accomplices of History.

I illustrated Queen Ka’ahumanu, the favourite wife of King Kamehameha I and the most powerful woman of her time in Hawaii.  Upon her husband’s death she donned a feather cape and called herself Queen Regent.  When the missionaries came in 1820 she ended up destroying all the ancient gods and temples leading to the ultimate downfall in a kingdom she helped create.

Fumi Koike

Fumi Koike is an illustrator & designer from Fukuoka, Japan. i was first drawn to her work because of her wonderful illustrations of food – wouldn’t it be cool to capture every plate you eat in this way? she has a great way of using colour and texture to make her beautifully simple compositions stand out. you can view her work on her blog and her flickr.
