  2. Souloff

    Though vector artist Souloff works in colour, her black and white work is equally powerful. Her outlines are smooth and sensual, with fat black marker lines thrown in to great effect. You can see influence from night club flyers, and also graffiti ([particularly in some of the lettering). Her ‘Mirror Mirror on the Wall’ series is inspired by fables and fairy tales, but with a modern twist. Do take a look at her website for more…

  6. Kozyndan

    Kozyndan is the super-star duo comprised of husband-and-wife Kozue (Kozy) and Dan Kitchens. Their work came into prominence in the early noughties, around the time when the illustration industry was getting new gusto and gaining more media prominence. Their prints were very popular in boutique art and book stores. It was in just such a stores where their beautifully detailed and absurd panoramics first caught my eye. Since then Kozyndan has gone from strength-to-strength, partaking in regular exhibitions, putting out a range of products, diversifying in style, and all the while picking more and more fans along the way.

  7. Maxwell A. Oginni

    Maxwell is a London based animation director, animator and illustrator. I like his experimental character designs; several different styles which show his versatility. If you visit his website, definitely check out his demo reel. It’s full of interesting animation, with excellent, punchy direction and some nice photomontage work. He has a great selection of work on his Vimeo page, too. We always like to hear from fellow Londoners, so thanks for getting in touch, Maxwell.
