Anne Lück is an illustrator from Germany and currently lives in Berlin. She uses thin lines and contrasting colours to great effect in her work. I was impressed to find she had her own Wikipedia page, and she also has a lovely website. If you’d like to find out a bit more about her, she has been interviewed on Design made in Germany.
Clients include Adidas, Time, Cosmopolitan and The Bavarian State Forestry.
Dwayne Bell’s new online folio site looks rather good. His work is very mixed media, from photography to traditional line drawings. Texture plays a large role and it’s nice to see there is a good solid understanding of drawing from life behind it all.
“I am a Scottish illustrator and lecturer, my artwork is an attempt to juxtapose hand drawn, analogue mark making and sketchbook aesthetic with a contemporary and clean digital, graphic style. I am influenced by traditional illustration, particularly 1950/60’s as well as a wide variety of contemporary work, art and comics.”
Clients include The Financial Times, Adidas and Carlton Cards.
