    Today we share the wonderful work of Russian illustrator Maria Menshikova. She works in various styles, though her black and white work stands out as something absolutely unique and incredible. I honestly can’t tell if she blends in photo-manipulation with traditional illustration, or if is all traditional hand-made work. The strong line-work alongside some soft tones and gritty textures works so well, the imagery doesn’t need colour to be powerful and exciting; it’s simply brilliant! I highly recommend visiting her website to sample every bit of her portfolio. Head on over…

    Nuno Da Costa is a London based fashion illustrator with great technique and a sense of style that shines through in his work. He hand draws and then paints his illustrations with water colours and Gouache. Once he is happy, he then takes them into Photoshop for touch-ups and further digital painting. It’s a nice technique, as it’s not always easy to clean things up off-screen.

    Nuno’s impressive client list includes Christian Dior, Vogue UK, Disney, Proctor & Gamble, Max Factor et al.

    Presenting the unmistakeable style of Carlos Meglia. Born in the city of Quilmes, Argentina, Meglia began his career in illustration way back in 1974. Early on in his career he joined Hanna-Barbera Studios, where he worked on cartoon series including The Smurfs, The Flinstones, and Scooby Doo. Steadily moving into comics, it was not until he partnered with famous Argentinian writer, Carlos Trillo, to work on titles Irish Coffee and in most notably Cybersix where Meglia really made waves in the industry. Cybersix itself bringing about both a live action television and animated series.

    By the mid-90s Carlos Meglia was working heavily with the US comic publishers. Such as Dark Horse, on their titles Star Wars and Spyboy, DC’s Superman/Tarzan: Sons of the Jungle, Adventures of Superman, as well as Marvel’s Elektra. In 2005, along with Belgian comic artist Didier Crisse, Meglia released the series Canari. Cybersix and Canari are some of his flagship works, however, my favourite English-language comics of Meglia are his Superman titles.
