Rodrigo Luff


It’s been some time since a post here in Signature Illustration, as currently things are afoot in blog land. We’re hoping to make everything more user friendly and more community based. Don’t worry, we have heard all the requests and messages to have a peek at your artworks, and are trying to get everything together so that Signature can showcase more reader work, but since this is what we do for fun, it doesn’t always get as much attention as it should when work and life gets in the way. Sorry about that! Don’t mind us, keep submitting, and have a look through the archives, you can always find new inspiring imagery, even if the work is old. In the mean time, I hope to make some new posts over the new years vacation, and hopefully introduce you some new names.

So to whet your appetite here is some gorgeous glowing work by Rodrigo Luff. Owls, nekkid ladies, trees, starlight, luminescence, this guy is pushing all my buttons! He just closed up a solo show in Thinkspace Gallery, and boy do I wish I could have seen his paintings in the flesh. The colours, and contrasts just drip off the canvas and paper, and the psychedelic owls make me feel like I ate too many mushrooms at night in a forest. The dude currently lives in Sydney and you can pick up prints of his work from his website. I strongly urge that you follow his blog on tumblr, or his instagram, he curates shows, and will be sure to wow your socks off with new artworks, sketches in progress or introduce you to new artists.

Henrik Uldalen

Henrik is a self taught artist from Norway. He is pretty crafty with his oil paints, isn’t he? I discovered Henrik’s art sort of by accident, although I’m sure I would have come across it eventually, as he has a number of exhibitions lined up for next year in the US and in the UK. He was also the cover artist featured on vol. 24 of Hi Fructose magazine. I kind of think that my way of meeting Henrik was more serendipitous. Henrik moved to Barcelona at the beginning of this month, and rented a room in my apartment for a couple of days, while he sought his own studio space. We met up for a beer to chat about art and Barcelona, and I discovered, while I enjoyed the sun and Henrik the shade on the terraza in Plaça del Sol, that he almost didn’t become an artist at all! It was only after he took up oil painting that he was able to capture his imagination and was able to project these in the way that he wanted. His suspended floating figures drift through space and forests and almost astrotravelling through distorted landscapes, resulting in a splendid diorama of dreamyness. Do have a look at all his paintings on his webpage, and become a fan on facebook. Henrik! Let’s do it again!

Moki



When I first came across the artworks of Moki, it was in her book “How to Disappear” which I couldn’t put down, and took home with me right away, where I spent hours pouring over her beautiful paintings. Now based in Berlin, her detailed paintings are dark, and intriguing.

Her images are unsettling and charming, strange yet familiar. They feature lonely northern landscapes: isolated Scandinavian and Icelandic terrain, a subarctic frozen lake continent, untouched caves and moss meadows, and mountains sculpted into anatomical shapes by wind and water. Animals and humans emerge and dissolve into their environments. Within the solitude of nature, disappearing seems an obvious act. (source)

Visit her website and blog to see more fantastic artworks.

Besides the awesome name of this artist from Seoul, South Korea, there is little information out there. You can find his website here, and facebook here, and perhaps you will be able to do a better sleuthing job than I. The work, however, does speak for itself, and has a loud and rather unusual voice, don’t you think? Trippy bathroom scenes, dripping paint, lurid colours, abstract shadows, what’s not to love? The paintings of legs in the bath, are wondrous, as pretty much any time I languish in the tub (with my book, legs over the rim), I always think the strange way your body disappears in the water in distorted shapes and colours, would make a great painting! So thanks Kim for making this wish come true!

Jeremy Enecio


Sometimes it’s hard to put into words how I feel about someone’s illustration or art. Mostly it’s “I like!” “I like!!” But that’s a pretty boring and shallow way to react to all this visual stimulation. Blame it on watching too much mindless TV. I don’t know. Anyway Jeremy Enecio’s fantastic art makes me gibber “I like” quite a bit. I had to stop for a bit, and actually look harder, take a moment and review why “I like”. I think first he caught my attention with his tribute work entitled Cthulu ( acrylic on paper | 11 x 14 ) The glowing eyes of the beast, and it’s enormity depicted with the tiny shark (that you instinctively know is probably a gazzillion meters long, at least 13 anyway!) drifting through the tentacles, froze me in it’s gaze. I couldn’t look away. Is it not fantastic to have this sort of physical reaction to an artwork. The more I browsed through his portfolio, the more I was entranced. The use of colour and subject matter, especially his fantastical artworks, blew my imagination open wide. Go do yourself a favour and take a peek at his website and blog!
