Nosego’s Colorful Illustrations of Pastiche Characters

Yis “Nosego” Goodwin creates whimsical illustrations composed of various styles and references. His work is almost collagist, combining elements not only of realism and cartoonish abstraction, but also contrasting technical skills. Some of the figures he portrays are drawn with fine detail, while others appearing in the same illustration are more fluid conceptions. He creates fascinating characters out of a pastiche of pop culture, folklore, and mythology.  Aside from illustrating, he also creates public murals.  Nosego is currently collaborating with Converse, the Cartoon Network series Adventure Time, as well as Nickelodeon. He will also be featured in Streetosphere, an upcoming documentary about street art. Nosego lives in Philadelphia.
