1. Penelope Dullaghan

    1 / 4

    Penelope Dullaghan resides in North Carolina, USA. She started working as a freelance illustrator in 2004, previously having worked as an art director for an advertising agency. She is probably quite well known in the illustration community for running the excellent website Illustration Friday (recently featured on The Lounge). Her illustration style is beautiful and she has a brilliant talent for hand-drawn typography. She has created some excellent logos for various companies, showing a good understanding of graphic design. A lot of illustrators attempt to ‘over-complicate’ logos when they are given the chance, but Penny keeps them simple which makes them easily applicable and resizable. I’ll also add that whenever we’ve had the privilege of corresponding with Penny she has been friendly and professional; always a pleasure.

    Her clients include The New York Times, Starbucks, Oprah and Harper Collins.

    Bram Lee is a Malaysian concept artist with a great knack for digital colouring. He uses various styles, including manga, comic book style art, background paintings and more technical illustrations such as weapons and machinery. It’s nice to look through his Deviant Art portfolio and see how all these various styles come together. Lots of fun!

  3. Vanessa Alice Bensimon aka Miss Van

    1 / 4

    At the beginnings, my dolls were self-portraits. Graffiti has a very megalomaniac side; instead of writing my name, I chose to represent myself through my dolls.

    – Miss Van.

    Born in Toulouse, France and graffing from the age of 18, Miss Van has one of the most recognisable style in the street art scene. Her dolls, with their exaggerated curves and sultry eyes, often in less then demure positions, ooze seduction with all intention to provoke a reaction. Her work has been exhibited in various galleries across the globe, often with other great street art talents, such as Banksy, Faile, and Shepard Fairey. More recently Miss Van moved to Barcelona and partnered with fashion designer Anaoana producing clothes and accessories under the brand name Miss Van & Anaoana.
