Lush work from French freelance illustrator, Romain Mennetrier. His simplified shapes work wonderfully with his textured colour treatment. I particularly love how emotive and charming his characters are. You can find more of Mr. Mennetrier work on his blog, brutal moineau or maybe pick up one of his Society6 prints.
Taylor’s character design harks back to the era of the genius Ronald Searle and is an absolute joy to browse. Want more? Swing on by his blogspot.
BTW he also enjoys cold cereal with 1% milk.
Shaun O’Neil has that anime style that we have all seen many times before however, xshaunx is clearly not your “run of the mill” anime artist. He illustrates with great humor and his dynamic and intense characters really leap of the screen. He currently storyboards for Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra.
Shaun O’Neil also has a few awesome self published sketchbooks available to purchase via Lulu. These sketchbooks are a collection of preliminary works, abandoned projects, work in progress and are well worth checking out.
Under the nick xshaunx, he has a fantastic presence on deviantart
