Istvan is a very successful commercial illustrator and animator who gained prominence in the mid-1980s in the USA.
Its odd but I find his illustration unusually easy to visualize – flavor and setting. He seems to have a real knack for isolating the subject matter through clever use of colors and layout. Politics, social absurdities, american pop culture, war and sexuality are all things he infuses in his art. Enjoy!
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!
