Sergio Membrilla’s work is really lovely and very diverse too. I think his more illustrated style where he uses traditional marks really cute and lovely and his more digital work more provocative and remind me of Olimpia Zagnoli’s style a little bit. Like the other artists I’ve looked at I can see this artist would make some really nice editorial illustrations and effective ones too.
Olimpia Zagnoli is an Italian illustrator from Milan. We were shown some of her work when Nous Vous were introducing the brief to the class and I really liked how bold and bright her illustrations are. I can see how she can be used for editorial pieces, her images make you look and intrigued about the article. They’re really eye catching and soft and I think she must have a lot of fun creating her illustrations because they look very fun.
When looking up Andrew Rae from the list of artists recommended to us to look at for the editorial brief I instantly loved his work. His cartoon style is really cool and the way he uses layers characters upon characters makes for really visually interesting work. I think I am more of a fan of his line work but his works are all cool and all tell a story. I love his attention the amount of detail that goes into all his illustrations.
Luke 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.
Our next studio brief is on editorial illustration. We’ve been asked to create two illustrations to go alongside an article of our choice from the list they gave us.
The articles we can choose from are:
