    Laura Müller aka Laumii is a comic artist and illustrator from Berlin, Germany. She has contributed to Undo’s Mega Man Tribute, and Subway to Sally Storybook. Ms Müller is the artist of Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits. Written by Vera Greentea, the first two volumes were funded by Kickstarter and the third volume is live on Kickstarter now.

    The vibrant and very cute illustrations of Laura Müller have a very lively quality to them. Though her style tends to lean towards manga, a western animation influence is very visible. Mr Müller has a varied colouring technique, all very strong, but I think her watercolours and her digital paintings are perticularly pleasing.

    You can find more of Laura Müller’s work on DeviantArt and tumblr.

    Editor’s Note

    I’d Love to Draw is a collection of work by the innovative American artist Andrew Loomis, previously unseen by anyone outside the Loomis family and available in print for the first time ever. Having been held in the Loomis family archive for decades after the artist’s death, I’d Love to Draw has been restored by a group of devoted experts, including the globally renowned comic book artist and Loomis devotee Alex Ross.

    The Book Review

    Last week we treated you with some special photos of the original I’d Love To Draw book. This week we shall regale you with our thoughts of the newly restored version.

    Ricardo is from Portugal and now lives in London. He works at D&AD, the famous creative hub home to the famous Yellow Pencil award. On Ricardo’s website you’ll find some excellent projects, both personal and professional. His Gallery of Mo portraits are fun, and I highly recommend taking a look at ‘Ever After’, his MA final project. I like the often whimsical and sometimes provocative nature of his work, so of course we were delighted to receive this suggestion. Now, wonder on over and gasp in delight at the rest of Ricardo’s portfolio…

    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).

    Stuart’s portfolio includes a variety of concept art, illustrations, caricatures, fantasy art and sketches. His colours are jaw-dropping, and it’s great to see the detail in his sketches. He currently works in the video games industry, having worked previously in web design. I had a tough time picking a few illustrations to display here on The Lounge; see more on his excellent website.

    “Like his ancestor, Davy Crockett, Tim was born on a mountaintop in Asheville, North Carolina. Picking up a crayon at the tender age of three – he never looked back.”

    I am a big admirer of Timothy’s work. I love the sketchy, scribbly marks that magically look so polished and beautiful. His illustrations always capture the mood so well, whatever the subject may be.

    His clients include Nike, Marvel and McGraw-Hill. He has a whole bunch of accolades too; find out more on his website.
