Crisp, bold and playful work from Manchester based Illustrator and Artist Deanna Halsall. Deanna Halsall has produced editorial, advertising and interior work for NBC America, Umbro, The Eden Project and Google.
“Her work stems from a love of nature, birds, beards, pens, nice hair, nostalgia, super mario, screen prints, the colour yellow and collecting old stuff usually found in her parents’ attic.”
Deanna’s illustration ‘A Lovely Day’ is available to purchase as a limited edition 5 colour Screen-print through HerbLester.com
Minimalist illustrations from Chinese-born Brooklyn based Illustrator / printmaker Jing Wei. Jing Wei has worked with clients such as New York Times, NPR, Giant Robot, American Airlines and Time Out NY.
“I had a magnetic drawing board that I was obsessed with as a kid. It had a handle, so I would carry it around everywhere. Whenever a family friend came over, I would make them sit while I drew horrendous portraits of them.” Jing Wei on her childhood art work interviewed by Christopher Auger-Domínguez.
Some of Jing Wei’s prints are available to purchase here on her website.
Some great illustration and graphic design from Northern Irish Artist Nigel Peake. After training as an Architect in 2005 Nigel worked on various cultural and commercial projects as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer and is currently based in Ireland.
“My observations of farms and the land are from an outsider’s view. Gleaned from observations as I used to sit at my table doing homework watching the farmers and their machines work the land. This book is a record of a quiet place that nearly everyone has visited at some point, and the farmland is part of this—a place where the lanes of farms run along the lake that is beside the hill of trees that is neighbor to open spaces.” Nigel Peake on his recent book ‘In the Wilds’ interview by Rosecrans Baldwin from ‘The Morning News’
Nigel Peake’s drawings and paintings have been exhibited internationally and he has worked on projects for the likes of Hermès, Dwell, Habitat, The Royal Horticultural Society, Brown Thomas, Architecture Review, Icon, Blueprint and Eastpak. Some of Nigel Peake’s publications are available on his site here and throughout Analogue Books here.
Beautiful surreal graphic work blending fashion portraiture, typography and images of nature from London based Artist and Illustrator Von. Von has worked with the likes of Nike, Ted Baker, 4AD, Penguin, Ministry of Sound, Wallpaper, Rolling Stone and The Guardian.
“Influenced by nature and popular culture his work flawlessly walks the line between surrealism and documentary, it is both detailed and abstract, capturing a mood in what appears to be a fleeting moment in time.”
Prints and originals of his work are available on his site here. Watch the short film made for the ‘Semblance’ launch at Protein’s 18 Hewett St Gallery (24.11.11) by London based film maker Andrew Telling.
