    Philadelphia-based Lydia Nichols is a illustrator, typographer, designer, and teacher (and anthropomorphizer). After an intern at Pixar, Ms Nichols started freelancing. Some of her notable clients including Bloomberg Businessweek, Chronicle Books, Google UK and MailChimp. She has also taught at MICA and Moore, as well a providing a class for Skillshare.

    Squeezing the best out of illustrator and photoshop, Ms Nichols’ work is both lucid and tactile. Her illustrations are clear, sprightly and guaranteed to put a smile on your face, if not, just a simper. Child-friendly too, her illustrations use subdued colour and have a Mary Blair/UPA charm to them.

    Continuing with our designer/illustrator theme, I present the work of Kevin Mercer. As a freelancer Mr Mercer’s past projects include advertising, editorial illustration, book illustration, brand strategy, logo design, packaging and hand drawn type. On top of freelancing he is now teaching Illustration at The University of the Arts.

    Mercer’s combines ink drawings with collage and digital elements. The work is very stripped down, but built up with layers of texture. All the while retaining a handmade feel. His colour choices are fantastic too, they aid the technique and help sell the intentional vintage-looking pieces.

    You can see more of Kevin Mercer’s work on his website, The Large Mammal.

    Scott Campbell, better known as Scott C., is an American artist and production designer. Mr C. began his career at LucasArts as concept artist, then went on to join Double Fine Productions as Art Director.

    In his spare time he paints, illustrates children’s book and also makes comics. His paintings have been showcase around the world. Many of them depict, what Mr C. calls “Great Showdowns”. The showdowns are often of cult favourites, and his ability to capture character likeness with such little detail is incredible. In keeping with his playful style, the showdowns are not actual showdowns per se, more like meetings, where the opposing parties stand and smile at one another. A more enjoyably interpretation of the term, there has not been.

    To see more of Scott C.’s work head over to his website.
