    We have a real mixed bag of styles and media from today’s feature, Ewa Ludwiczak. Born in Poland and currently living in Berlin, Ms Ludwiczak is a freelance illustrator specialising in tradition materials, in particular watercolours.

    Ms Ludwiczak has illustrated various children’s books but has an obvious keenness towards fairy tales. Recently she has been showcasing a lot of portraiture and figures drawing on her Facebook page. The figures themselves sit still as a mouse, as she using watercolours to create loose and expressive imagery with splashes, drips, and small dabs of bold colours. They are beautiful and a delightful progression of her work.

    You can find more of Ewa Ludwiczak’s illustrations on her website, and Behance page.

    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.

    Scott Campbell, better known as Scott C., is an American artist and production designer. Mr C. began his career at LucasArts as concept artist, then went on to join Double Fine Productions as Art Director.

    In his spare time he paints, illustrates children’s book and also makes comics. His paintings have been showcase around the world. Many of them depict, what Mr C. calls “Great Showdowns”. The showdowns are often of cult favourites, and his ability to capture character likeness with such little detail is incredible. In keeping with his playful style, the showdowns are not actual showdowns per se, more like meetings, where the opposing parties stand and smile at one another. A more enjoyably interpretation of the term, there has not been.

    I cannot overemphasise how beautiful Conrad Roset’s illustrations are. I am particularly besotted with his work for the children’s book Ensueños. Mr Roset is from Terrassa, Spain and studied at the Joso School and at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona. Straight out of university, his online portfolio caught the attention retailers Zara. Working there for a year he developed his style and took the opportunity to learn from other illustrators.

    After Zara, Mr Roset was confident to start a freelance career and, has had many triumphs working for different brands, agencies, and publishing companies. Some of his notable clients include Adidas, Coca Cola, Disney, Mulberry, Laurence King, Random House Mondadori and Wieden+Kennedy. On top of his freelancing successes he also shares his knowledge teaching illustration at the School of Design BAU.

    Last weekend I decided to go on the Open Studio & Art Trail. Essentially it is a free event where artist and craftspeople from the local community open up their studio to the inquisitive public. It’s a great idea, and I have not heard of many events similar to this, but I do (selfishly) hope the idea spreads to other parts of London.

    Upon my sunny trails I stumbled into the house of watercolour artist, David Nunn. His work consisted of people, places, and pets that he has meet on his many travels. Mr. Nunn’s attention to detail and the control he has of watercolours is stunning. I know it’s an odd thing to appreciate, but I really like the fact that he uses gouache to bring out white hairs.

    You can find more information on Mr. Nunn on his blog and Facebook page.
