Mancunian Ed J Brown is an illustrator with some fantastic hand-drawn type skills. His humour comes through in his work, which is pumped with bold colours and jagged lines. Pretty exciting stuff.

“All his work consists of completely hand drawn and hand made images, even the colours he uses come from scanned in sugar paper – this is all assembled in Photoshop like a big sexy jigsaw.”
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:
Russian illustrator Taya is proficient in so many different styles, it’s hard to believe it’s only one person. I am personally very much liking her distorted shapes and absurd characters. More of Taya’s illustrations can be found on her tumblr and her website. Thanks for getting in touch, Taya!You may also like:

I cannot attempt to better the write-up on Otto Von Beach’s website, so here it is:
“Born in 1857, his successful career as an artist was interrupted while on an expedition to Siberia in 1896. Swept away by a freak uphill avalanche, Otto lay frozen in the Russian ice for the next 114 years.
Discovered by a passing hiker in March 2010, Otto’s body was sent to Moscow for routine analysis. There, scientists were astonished to discover faint signs of life and immediate steps were taken to resuscitate him.
After a lengthy and painful period of thawing, Otto was restored to full health and reunited with his descendants.
He has resumed his career as an illustrator and now shares a studio with his great-great-grandson and illustrator, Beach.”
Enjoy!You may also like:
