1. Ed J Brown

    Mancunian Ed J Brown is an illustrator with some fantastic hand-drawn type skills. His humour comes through in his work, which is pumped with bold colours and jagged lines. Pretty exciting stuff.

  2. Fashion Fridays ~ Esra Røise

    Esra Røise is a Norwegian illustrator based in Oslo. She is inspired by everyday situations and snapshot photography due to their impulsive nature and bad cropping. You can see this in her work, which are often simply pencils and flashes of colour. They come alive, despite the fact that illustration is inanimate. Her facial expressions are unusual and intriguing and boy, can she draw hair! Clients include Vogue, Wallpaper*, United Airlines and Nike.

  3. Daryl Mandryk

    Ridiculously skilled work from freelance artist Daryl Mandryk. Based in Vancouver, Canada he has worked on games, film, print, and the web. Recently working as Lead Concept Artist on video games Tron Evolution and Turok, his previous clients include EA, Lucasfilm, Hasbro, Dark Horse Comics, and Imagine FX Magazine. Filled with emotion and movement, his work manages to convey each scene in the height of the action. To see more of Mr. Mandryk’s work, head over to his website.

  4. Olga Stern

    Olga Stern is a Toronto-based illustrator and visual-development artist. Her portfolio is a wash of cheerful characters and mediums. Although, it is pretty clear to see her biggest strength is her sweeping background designs. They are exquisitely textured, the colours are vibrant but harmonious, and they are in every sense of the word picturesque. Stern’s previous clients include Pixar, Laika, ACME filmworks, and Head Gear Animation. You can find more of her work by heading to her website.

  5. Manga Mondays ~ May Ann Licudine

    Absolutely beautiful work from this month’s Manga Mondays artist. May Ann Licudine, aka Mall, lives and works in the Philippines. Her portfolio is a mixed bag with pieces ranging from fun and dream-like to sombre. One look at it reveals she is equally skilled in both sculpture and illustration. I personally adore her brightly-coloured paintings, preferably the ones with cats. Check out more of her work on her deviantArt page.

  6. Muxxi

    Guatemalan illustrator and character designer Muxxi has a punchy style full of zany characters doing zany things. She works primarily in digital form, though she has also created some captivating murals and other artworks in 3D. Computer Arts Magazine, Pictoplasma and Nokia have all taken note of her talents and I think there is only one way to go from here and that’s up. Visit Muxxiland for more!
