I am really enjoying Matthew Daniel Swan’s work. He creates beautiful illustrations and paintings from which he draws inspiration from pulp cartoons and references Trenton Doyle Hancock. Swan was born in 1987 and works and lives in Edinburgh.
Terry Rodgers reflects the time we are living in through his body of work. He touches on topics pertaining to contemporary body politics, isolation, and hope.
Check out Sarah Williamson’s prints and fill up with a sense of dark whimsy, which is what her work has a tendency to do. Incredibly decorative, surreal, and a sprinkle of naivete.
Madrid based illustrator, Jose Manuel Hortelano-Pi, creates these wonderfully detailed pen and watercolor works. I for one especially enjoy his black and white drawings (like the above.)
Ivonne Dippmann’s unflattering, raw, and distorted drawings of hefty men in disguises is not what one would describe as “gorgeous.” But it is, maybe not right off the bat, but the obvious attention to the design and detail of shape, texture, and mark-making pulls these into one heck of a killer style of drawing.
I am really enjoying Marcel van Eeden’s work. I am particularly amused by his A Cutlet Vauderville Show in which he depicts two pieces of meat performing song. Marcel van Eeden was born in 1956 in The Hague, Netherlands.
Using only white pencil and black paper, Bette Burgoyne creates nature inspired illustrations in the form of whispy white lines. Although dark and mysterious, her work is really beautiful.
