    Christina Jung lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, USA. She works in various styles, primarily using acrylics and screen-printing with a nice touch of hand-lettering thrown into the mix. Christina says:

    It has always made sense for illustration and graphic design to go hand in hand. A good illustration will be well-crafted and conceptually sound. A really great illustration will do all that and consider the placement of type.”

    Good advice. See more of Christina’s work on her lovely website.

    Hannah is based in Sheffield, UK. She has some interesting work on her blog, such as her Adam & Eve illustration ‘The Very First Date’. I also found her university project ‘The Man on the Moon’ to be a beautiful piece of work. She has an appealing visual style which could suit all sorts of work, from editorial to comics, children’s books and more. I’m sure there is a bright future for Hannah Wheeler in the world of illustration.

    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).

    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.

    Award winning Irish illustrator Steve Simpson creates visuals that are so rich with type and colour it hurts.

    “Steve takes an organic approach to his projects, blending the disciplines of design and illustration. He spends a great deal of time on construction, shape and problem solving at the pencil stage. Continuously re-drawing until a balance of aesthetics, key brief considerations and client satisfaction have been realized.”

    Every piece of work in his portfolio leaves me stunned with amazement, so head on over to see more…
