Illustrations by Scott Musgrove

It wasnt easy finding images, even on his illustration blog, of Scott’s work but above is a decent collection of his wonderfull work.

Lovely Illustration’s by Mateusz Kolek

Mateusz has a playful feel to his illustrations but maintains an edge on his work through the subject matter. I like both the bright colors and the softer color sets which where used for the Coco Rosie pieces. I’m particularly fond of Tokyo Rain and Yakuza – almost ended up buying one of these pieces!

I hope you enjoy his illustrations as much as I have!

A tribute to the legendary Norman Rockwell – Happy Birthday

“Norman Rockwell was a 20th-century American illustrator. His works enjoy a broad popular appeal in the United States, where Rockwell is most famous for the cover illustrations of everyday life scenarios he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine over more than four decades. Among the best-known of Rockwell’s works are the Willie Gillis series, Rosie the Riveter, Saying Grace (1951), and the Four Freedoms series.” – Wiki

Explore the world of Ana Bagayan

Ana is Armenian but moved to the US when she was 16 years old. Reading her Bio one gets the sense that she had an angelic time in California where she plaid amongst tall grass and immersed herself in the natural world. You can see these early influences coming through in her artwork.

I love her work – style & message. I am especially enjoying the non-macabre pieces – refreshing in amongst so much of this darkness we see in contemporary illustration. Pieces like Willow, Critters and Fox. For me the underlying theme shows youth comfortably immersing themselves in nature/life whilst discovering life, death and themselves. Exploration of self and the world through the innocence of youth and the reality of life. In this way I think her illustrations could be very personal.

A note from the illustrator:  “I don’t think style or concept can stand alone, one without the other. I like to use subtle humor, a dark twist, and a lot of detail in my artwork to pull the viewer in. ”

She entered Art Center College of Design in Pasadena where she earned her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Illustration.

Enjoy!
