Christi du Toit is a graphic design student and self taught illustrator from Cape Town, South Africa. He creates some excellent illustrated CD skins. I like the humorous style, and a lot of his works are almost like very polished doodles; they are very playful with elements weaving in and out of each other. Take a look at his Behance page, or alternatively his Dribbble page for more.You may also like:

Dasha Tolstikova lives and works in New York. She is a doodler extraordinaire, creating all sorts of interesting work, such as her ‘Book of Lonely Children’ and her work in progress titled ’12: A Year Without Mom’, which looks intriguing and I’m sure will be a great piece of work. I’m not sure if her works are autobiographical at all, but she does pick interesting subject matter and you can feel some real truth coming through. Her style carries a child-like innocence, which is perfect for the type of subjects she draws. Her handwriting is adorable (quite an achievement if you consider she uses only capital letters).You may also like:
Argentine Vanesa Souss has some sublime doodles and patterns on her Tumblr. I love her simple style and hand-lettering. Her experiments with polygons are also rather interesting to see.You may also like:
Rich Gemmell is inspired by his everyday life. I particularly like the way he plays with perspective in clever and interesting ways. It reminds me of the experimental animation styles UPA pushed out in the 50s.
“Half traditional, half digital I strive to maintain a hand drawn look.”
Clients include The Guardian, Sunday Times Magazine and Amelia’s Magazine.
“Like his ancestor, Davy Crockett, Tim was born on a mountaintop in Asheville, North Carolina. Picking up a crayon at the tender age of three – he never looked back.”
I am a big admirer of Timothy’s work. I love the sketchy, scribbly marks that magically look so polished and beautiful. His illustrations always capture the mood so well, whatever the subject may be.
His clients include Nike, Marvel and McGraw-Hill. He has a whole bunch of accolades too; find out more on his website.You may also like:
Masha is based in London, where she creates wild and intricate illustrations for various clients such as Vodafone, Mercedes and All Saints. Her images start off as handmade, and are then manipulated digitally to enhance the colours and textures. Some of her work uses brilliantly vivid colours, but even her black and white work packs a real punch. Visit her Behance page here.You may also like:
Sam has been putting up an illustration a day on his blog since 1st January 2011.
“I would love it if you could have a look at my blog which is updated daily with a completely new drawing done by myself. I’ve been doing this since 1st Jan 2011 and have only really kept it between myself and my friends on facebook.”
Not anymore! Thanks for letting us know Sam.You may also like:
