Fernando Vicente is such a talented, versatile illustrator that it would probably take ten posts on The Lounge to cover his abilities. But to summarise, he specialises in fashion illustration, children’s illustration, pin-ups, technical illustrations, maps and caricatures. Some of his finest work depicts pin-up girls with segments of their inner anatomy displayed. Visit his website, or alternatively his Behance page to see more.

Deanna creates some really interesting editorial illustrations in a retro style that’s all her own. Her work is often very clever, sending a clear message that’s easy to understand. The illustrated map she created for Beefeater Gin stands out as a really beautiful piece of work and there is a lot of strong illustration to be found on Deanna’s website.
“Her work stems from a love of nature, birds, beards, pens, nice hair, nostalgia, super mario, screen prints, the colour yellow and collecting old stuff usually found in her parents’ attic.”
Deanna’s clients include NBC America, Umbro and The Eden Project. She is currently based in the UK.
