I've been working away this week...trade show in Atlanta coming up over the weekend, however, I'm dubious that there will be a big turnout since Mother Nature seems to be on a tear.
Anyway, I have wanted to post about this illustrator, Niki Pilkington ever since I was introduced to her work. I love the hot colors mixing with great line illustrations. Yum!
I know I've said this before, but there are so many decent illustrators who simply can't (or won't?) draw faces or hands. I always want to take them aside and say, "OK, compositionwise, conceptwise, you're great and I like you. But it would really benefit your work if you focused on your craft. Just take the time to get a method for the FACES and HANDS. Because I just can't LOVE you unless you show me you can do the hard parts." Some illustrators even leave OUT the faces and hands...which I think always looks like...well, like they got lazy. Do you know what I mean?
Sigh. Sorry. I'm in a snit. So here is your reward for being so tolerant...Incredible talent, mixed with really cool color observations. More by this wonderful (faces and hands included!) artist HERE.
