    I follow quite a few illustrators on Instagram, but recently the work of J.A.W. Cooper has been blowing me away. You know when you complete an illustration, take a step back and think to yourself, “Yes! Nailed it”. Well, that’s what I imagine Ms Cooper is doing every time right before she uploads a new picture to her Instagram.

    Born in England but currently living in Los Angeles, Ms Cooper is a freelance illustrator, sculpture, jewelry maker and member of the Prisma Collective. Professionally she illustrates for the entertainment and advertising industry creating storyboards, concept and character design. Personally she frequently produces work for galleries. Her work has been exhibited in Gallery Nucleus, Spoke Art Gallery, and La Luz de Jesus Gallery.

    J.A.W. Cooper regularly updates her blog. Which is of course filled with her beautiful artwork, and lots of photographs of her process. So much so that she set up a separate tutorial section just for it. Ms Cooper breaks down her process step-by-step and explains her thinking as well as highlight problematic areas of her process. It is full of good tips, and very helpful to see such detailed breakdowns of her work.

    You can find more J.A.W. Cooper on her website.

    Mr. Ramn’s recently established a new website to plays host to much of his current work, but with the key aim of providing in-depth background on his process and reasoning. His finely written article are definitely worth a read, you can start with Omission in storytelling.

    I recently stumbled on the wonderful work of Toerning through one of her few, but very useful, tutorials. Her tutorials are filled with tips about lighting, perspective, composition and colour, and well worth a gander.

    Often working with traditional mediums such as ink, acrylics or gouache. Toerning’s knowledge of lighting and colour really stands out. And her marrying of both traditional and digital processes create some stunning results, as seen in her Selkie pieces.

    To see more of Toerning’s work, check out her DeviantArt and Tumblr.

    In the post today I received a copy of Delilah Dirk and the Seeds of Good Fortune by the very talented Tony Cliff. Delilah Dirk is the successful webcomic series, nominated for Shuster, Harvey and Eisner award. It has recently been picked up by publishers First Second whom will be releasing a paperback edition in August.

    Besides Delilah Dirk, Tony Cliff also contributed to the Flight anthology, and keeps a pretty tidy blog. Packed with latest news, sketches and his popular tutorials.
