    Zac Gorman has worked across the fields of print, illustration, design, motion, web, and UI. Clearly as adaptable as he is talented, he often varies his style for the project in hand. Mr. Gorman is an avid blogger and regularly updates his Magical Game Time website. It houses all of his video game inspired illustrations, and is now brimming with humorous and introspective pieces.

    “Quit your day job and do what makes you happy”

    Zac Gorman’s quote from his very famous illustration encapsulating the true moral of Super Mario Bros. Interestingly he recently wrote an further thought-provoking article titled, Do What You Can & Be Happy Regardless. In which Mr. Gorman speaks about the stigma attached to working, and how a simple realisation lead him to be happier in his day job.

    Victor Hugo Queiroz is a 3D artist from Brazil. Winner of multiple awards including CGTalk Choice Award, 3DTotal Excelence Award, and CGHub Gold Award. Hugo currently works for Techno Image, along side previously featured artist, Pedro Conti.

    Self-taught, Hugo has developed a comical manga-influenced style for his personal work. His character’s have large luring eyes, and rubbery skin which further exaggerate their playfulness. I will leave you with a very good quote I read on Hugo’s Facebook page:

    “Everyone has something to learn, everyone has something to teach”

    Gemma Correll is a UK based illustrator, know for her guileless style. A style that has garnered her over 236,000 followers on facebook, and clients including Hallmark, The New York Times, Chronicle Books and The Observer. Correll has also published four books to date, her latest being, A Pug’s Guide to Dating.

    Though her style does come under criticism, combining mature subject matters with crude drawings is a tried-and-true technique. One of the most famous and shining examples of this is Maus by Art Spiegelman. Another interesting element of Correll’s style is her regular use of just three colours; black, white and red. A very powerful colour scheme, with strong cultural meaning, that is more often used in design. So yes, Correll’s illustrations can be mistaken as childish, but then that would disregard the maturity and intuition involved to produce them.

    You can find more of Correll’s work on her website, and don’t forget to check out her Daily Diaries.
