    René Vincent was a French illustrator, painter and poster designer. Prevalent in the 1920s-1930s, he worked in the popular Art Deco style. His illustrations helped define early 20th-century advertising, birthing countless imitators and admirers alike. Tintin creator, Hergé, cited René Vincent as an inspiration.

    Vincent was born in Bordeaux, France in 1879, but moved to the capital when he was five-years-old. His father, Charles Vincent was a famous novelist and his older brother Henri Vincent-Anglade was a renowned painter.

    Zhang Webber is from Shanghai, China. He uses all kinds of techniques including pencil, watercolours, digital and traditional painting. He more often than not leaves behind intentionally sketchy marks, and his colours are made up of separate blocks rather than being smooth and nicely blended. This all fits together to create an imperfection that works so well, probably because he gets the basics right in the first place. His anatomy, composition and general observational skills are obviously excellent.

Some of his previous clients include American Express, Volkswagen, GQ, and The Walt Disney Company, but the list definitely goes on. His paintings are full of charm, playing with colour and perspective. Often abstracting shapes and reducing realism to better convey the narrative.

    Spanish illustrator Rafa Alvarez has an impressive selection of works on his website. I like the way he sometimes uses coloured ink lines, almost like those in many animated films. There are nice strokes in his lines too. He has a good knack for well thought out editorial illustrations as well as advertising posters and comic strips.

    Rafa’s clients include Playboy Magazine, Etihad Airways and American Express. He has published graphic novels and children’s books and is currently working on interactive ebooks for the iPad.

    After graduating in Fashion & Textile Design in 1988, Mandy Pritty worked in the fashion industry for several years as a designer. She then made the move into her true love, painting and illustration. It turned out to be a wise decision; she’s been illustrating professionally for the past 15 years!

    Mandy has a great unique style, which is warm and fuzzy and borrows slightly from her previous fashion career with her recognisable elongated figures. She has worked in a range of sectors, from books to advertising, greeting cards, corporate illustration and more.
