    Evon Freeman is a character designer and storyboard artist. Currently at Walt Disney Animation Studios she is working as a prop and effects designer on Daron Nefcy’s Star and the Forces of Evil. Prior to Disney, Freeman worked at Nickelodeon Animation Studios on the TV series The Legend of Korra and Monsters VS. Aliens. She was also the character designer and storyboard artist for the Korra prequel web series Republic City Hustle.

    Freeman’s journey into the world of art is actually rather unique. Her interest was bred out of boredom and circumstance. Spending quite a lot of time in Taiwan as a child and unable to play outside due to it extremely humid summers. Freeman bought some how-to-draw books and started doodling. In High School she took all the art classes she could, pottery, photography, art, and computer graphics. Then went on to study graphic design and multimedia at California State University-East Bay. After landing a job at Electronic Arts she applied for the Visual Development program at the Academy of Art. Freeman’s inspiring thirst to learn and grow is not slowing down either, she has also been taking storyboarding classes at the Concept Design Academy.

    The best place to see more of Evon Freeman is her regularly updated Tumblr, but you can also find more of her work on Blogger and DeviantArt.

    Victo Ngai is not short of accolades, having won two gold medals from the Society of Illustrators, as well as being featured on the prestigious Forbes 2014 30 under 30: Art & Style list.

    Born in Hong Kong, Ngai graduated from Rhode Island School of Design and works primarily as an editorial illustrator. Now based in New York, she has illustrated for newspapers, magazines, books and advertising campaigns. Ngai’s client list is incredible, previously working with the likes of New York Times and the New Yorker, IMAX, Folio Society, Somerest House London, Lufthansa Airline and General Electric.

    Victo Ngai’s style, though it does vary quite a bit, is often intricate and rhythmic. Incorporating pattern and repetition, many of her pieces remind me of Medieval and Japanese tapestries. I really love her colours choices for the outline of the main figures. It does a wonderful job of distinguishing the figure, whilst at the same time, unifying it with an often complex background.

    Hop over to her website for more work. Whilst there, do not forget to watch her short interviews with Like Knows Like and Forge Magazine.

    Presenting the esoteric work of The H Lazarus. Born in Venice, Italy, Lazarus studied Fine art at The Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna (Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna), where she first started to explore the themes of Surrealism, Cyberpunk, Angiography, Mythology and Technology. Working with them concurrently she started to find parallels and where their paths crossed. Working in this manner Lazarus has succeeded in producing some very expressive and compelling imagery. As well as this personal artistic exploration, since 2011, she has been a member of Italian comic collective Manticora Autoproduzioni.

    You can find more of The H Lazarus’ work on behance and Facebook.

    Antony Gustard aka CMG aka CustardMustardGustard is an illustrator from England but currently based in Mexico. He started his own independent Skate/Street Wear Brand also called CMG.

    Gustard creates lino prints, collages and paintings on found wood. His work uses brightly coloured, simple shapes, often depicting disembodied limbs (but in a happy way). His illustrations are also accompanied with pattern detailing, which give his work a tribal feel to them.

    You can find Antony Gustard on Facebook and Twitter, and see more of his work on his website.

    Manga Mondays ~ Kyonghwan Kim

    Kyonghwan Kim is a Korean digital concept artist. His work, which often includes reimagined medieval characters or anthropomorphic cats, is simply stunning. Kim’s costume design is full of layers and often dramatic but, for me, it is his painterly rendering that really sets his work apart. Each and every texture is careful considered and the details he adds to his foliage would make the Pre-Raphaelites proud.

    Kyonghwan Kim recently released his first art book, details of which you can find here, and to see more of his work head over to his website.
