I stumbled on Patrick Leger’s work a short while ago through the excellent promotional illustrations he created for Adult Swim’s Venture Bros.. As well as Turner Broadcasting, some of his other client’s include The New York Times, Esquire, Harper Collins, GQ and Google, but that’s not even half of the big names he has worked with. With a portfolio full of thoughtful, well composed and attention-grabbing pieces, I am not one bit surprised he is in such great demand. I do love his muted palette, and I am a patsy for his retro halftones effect. You can find more of Patrick Leger’s work on his website.
Charlene Chua grew up in Singapore, and her creative career began in website design, later moving into graphic design and interactive design. In 2003 she started pursuing a career in illustration, and by 2006 she made it her full-time occupation. She has worked with clients from all over the world, including Google, The Wall Street Journal, Konami and Oxford University Press.
She now lives in Canada with her husband and two cats.
Willie Real is an ex-Blue Sky Studios environment designers, and part-time Google doodler. I stumbled on Mr. Real’s work a few years back and fell in love with his confident pen work. His illustrations are like refined sketches—all the movement and expression of a sketch, with wonderfully clear and controlled line work. How he managed to marry the two so well is what makes his work so inspiring. You can keep up to date with Willie Real’s antics on his blog.
Dale got in touch with us recently and as always we love to hear from our visitors! Dale has some really great editorial work on his website. He has a really nice angular style, straight lines often cleverly used to direct the eye. I always appreciate an illustrator who can think outside the box as well as deliver aesthetically pleasing work. His ideas are interesting and executed with confidence; here’s a true professional.
Clients include Google, V&A, easyJet, Toyota, BBC, Microsoft…and a load of other big names. YCN seem to be doing great job representing this talented illustrator.
I had a quick look at his shop ‘Hip Hop Head Prints’. These are prints of some Hip Hop legends, all in Dave’s angular style looking amazing. I love how you can tell who’s who, even in such a simple style. At the very least, they’ll make you chuckle! So go and take a look…
