Originally from Japan, illustrator and graphic design artist Fumi Mini Nakamura now works out of the NYC area. Her works in graphite and colored pencil feature a unique cast of characters: human figures rendered in striking photo-negative-like detail; flocks of feathered and toothed creatures; the occasional skull. The mixture of natural and imaginary elements always seems just right, rather than chaotic and disorganized. Examine some more of her works for yourself after the jump.
Josh Evans is a Los Angeles based illustrator who works his pieces from varied sources of inspiration; a music icon, the meaning behind a word, an historical yet obscure event. I admire Josh’s illustrative methods which change from one work to another… he seems to choose a medium best fit for the story of his subject. Don’t miss Josh’s recently published zine titled Rankle Jones, and the curious history of how this publication came to pass.
