Apart from the excellent technique and style, his work makes me smile. His clients include VISA, YouSendIt and Volkswagen. Visit Max’s website for more.

    Artist and mentor Takeshi Obata is possibly best known as the illustrator of hugely popular manga series Death Note. Obata’s first break came at the age of 16, when his one shot 500 Kōnen no shinwa won the Tezuka Award. He later went on to create Hikaru no Go, and in 2006, Death Note which earned him an Nominated-Eisner Award for Best Artist. Obata’s style is very crisp with tight line-work but his characters are often “edgy” and always stylish. If you’re looking to start a new series Death Note is an exceptional (and pretty cheap series) to get into.

    Editorial illustrator Vahram Muradyan’s portfolio is filled with the illustration equivalent of one-liners. His work is conceptual but the statement is very clear. His style, often limited in colours, imitates old school printing techniques such as screen and woodcut printing, which help to add a little movement to his pieces. You can see more of Muradyan’s work on his website.
