Continuing with our designer/illustrator theme, I present the work of Kevin Mercer. As a freelancer Mr Mercer’s past projects include advertising, editorial illustration, book illustration, brand strategy, logo design, packaging and hand drawn type. On top of freelancing he is now teaching Illustration at The University of the Arts.

Mercer’s combines ink drawings with collage and digital elements. The work is very stripped down, but built up with layers of texture. All the while retaining a handmade feel. His colour choices are fantastic too, they aid the technique and help sell the intentional vintage-looking pieces.

You can see more of Kevin Mercer’s work on his website, The Large Mammal.
