    Wilkins’ illustrations take full advantage of the perfect lines of vectors. However, he often incorporates scanned painted textures adding an element of handcrafted imperfection. His pastel pallet, as well as his strong use of geometric shapes, is very reminiscent of 1950s illustration. Which he plays upon by adding subtle noise and distress.

    Donno switches his work between sensitive and humorous. Just as easily I laugh at his dogs wearing crowns, I can lose myself in his floral patterns.

    Brave the Woods is a design and illustration studio based in Texas, comprised of duo Brad & Krystal Woodard. They create retro inspired illustrations with strong graphic design sensibilities. Some of their clients include Target, Old Navy, Honda, Urban Outfitters, Microsoft, and the History Channel.

    Their styles vary per project, drawing inspiration from a range of sources and experiences. Though, looking across their portfolio, I can see the influence of UPA in their character design and a touch of Alexander Girard in their graphic design. The typography is also a key element of their work. Always in keeping with the overall piece, their type is playful and fun without compromising the clarity.

    Brave the Woods also have a shop called Brave Outpost. It is jam-packed with goodies from Books to T-Shirts. With great prices too, it is definitely worth perusing.
