    I’m very excited about Mr. Penfold’s solo show in lively Camden Town next week! It runs from the 1st to the 4th of August. If you are in London during this time, pop in and show some support! Here’s a press release for the show:

    The highly anticipated debut London show for Mr. Penfold is finally here, Thursday 1st August is the date to save. Showcasing new works from the artist, the series will feature new paintings on three materials: wood, canvas and paper. The work sees Penfold delve deeper into his love for both abstract art and graffiti, a fusion which the artist has been developing and nurturing over his career.

    Though vector artist Souloff works in colour, her black and white work is equally powerful. Her outlines are smooth and sensual, with fat black marker lines thrown in to great effect. You can see influence from night club flyers, and also graffiti ([particularly in some of the lettering). Her ‘Mirror Mirror on the Wall’ series is inspired by fables and fairy tales, but with a modern twist. Do take a look at her website for more…

    Pedro Campiche, also known as AKA.CORLEONE is from Portugal. Pedro works as a freelance designer and illustrator and draws inspiration from graffiti.

    “Painting walls and running from dogs also gave me the addiction to typography, colour, painting, drawing all day, planning things in advance, and mostly it gave me a chance to express myself without boundaries, something I try to apply to my daily life and work.”

    Pedro’s portfolio is full of typographic experimentation, punchy colours and illustrations that are a little bit mad, a bit scary, a bit funny, and without question totally captivating. Pedro is Co-founder of Steppin Stone, a platform for illustration with an online shop selling prints, clothes, and interestingly a ‘lowbrow illustration’ magazine called Fine Rats.

    El Tobe (aka Toby Haynes) lives in Northamptonshire, England. He works as a graphic designer for his day-job, but at night his illustration hat is on. He creates punchy work which involves graffiti style characters, crazy patterns and hand drawn text. I simply enjoy looking at his work, and that’s enough for me!

    El Tobe is also involved in our charity book project, ‘100% Recycled Paper’. We’ll keep you updated on progress with that here on Illustrator’s Lounge. At the moment we are in talks with a publisher. Fingers crossed!

    Belgian illustrator Mister Melvin creates wonderful illustrations with a unique style. He knows how to create illustrations which make you chuckle, that’s for sure. Comprising of mainly editorial and children’s’ book work, he also has some graffiti and other bits and pieces on his website. Mister Melvin contributed to our book ‘100% Recycled Paper’ (soon to be published). When I first saw his comic strip for the book, it made me laugh out loud to the point of crying! Such is his excellent sense of humour. Additionally, he has an intelligent way of getting his ideas across in his work with wit and charm.

    On a personal note, I found Mister Melvin to be a true pro and he doesn’t do anything half-heartedly. Visit his fantastic portfolio here.

  6. Mr. Penfold

    I am a long time admirer of Mr. Penfold. His style usually involves great line-work and bold colours, and the world is his canvas.

    “Amid the bicycle ridden streets of Cambridge Mr Penfold lurks. Observing characters, then re-creating them on walls and canvas’. Using strong linear elements against organic outlines with an overly scientific approach to colour, Penfold works with record labels, promoters and clothing companies and has also appeared in a range of magazines such as Graphotism, K Mag and Don’t Panic!”
