Visual Research // Luke Best

luke-best-1Luke Best is a London based illustrator and we were pointed in his direction to look at for our editorial brief  and I can see how his works would work well as editorial illustrations. He has a very colourful style and his works look great in colour. I think the brightness and vividness make them visually striking. I like the use of layers or overlapping in his pieces, it gives some depth to the flatness of the illustrations.

redstone-02I had a little research about him and I thought it was a cool thing that Best avoids a specific way of working so it makes him more diverse in his practice – working in animation, self publishing ing books, designing t-shirts and making home made spacesuits. He is also part of a collection called The Peepshow Collective and is represented by Heart Agency.
