Montreal illustrator Janice Nadeau has won three Governor General’s Awards for her poetic, evocative illustration. She uses watercolor and pencil (and sometimes charcoal and ink) to create her sophisticated color palettes and detailed characters and scenes. Nadeau has illustrated three books including Harvey, a long-form graphic picturebook that appeals to both children and adults for its honest portrayal of loss. Nadeau is now working on an animated short.

Tradd Moore broke into the comics scene with the indy series The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, and it’s sequel The Legend of Luther Strode with writer Justin Jordan. His distinct, dynamic style, and liberal use of squash & stretch with his characters has quickly propelled Tradd Moore to the top of the mainstream comics world. He graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2010, and jumped right into illustrating comics after that.

Today, Tradd Moore has a bonafide hit on his hands with his work on the new, revamped Ghost Rider with writer/artist Felipe Smith for Marvel Comics. He also provides cover art for other Marvel books, like Secret Avengers, and Deadpool. When he can find the time, he continues to work on independent comics like the new Image series Zero.

You can see more artwork, and follow Tradd Moore on his blog.

Illustrator: Felideus

‘Intricate detail’ is a descriptor applied at times somewhat indiscriminately to illustration. After all, the mere presence of a lot of small marks doth not necessarily intricate detail make. For an example of artwork possessed of true intricacy – the type of detail that is comprised of many elements each enjoying their own intrinsic allure – we may consult the portfolio of Felideus.

There’s a lot going on in Felideus’s work. Not only are his steampunk-inflected images alive with immaculate toy-like creatures and characters in playset environments, but each of these are rendered in remarkable texture of such singularly tactile appearance that they invite you to reach out and touch them. Or poke them. Or possibly bite them – there’s a pleasing squeaky dog chew vibe about a lot of this stuff.

With its storybook aesthetic and crew of anthropomorphic denizens, Felideus’s work recalls the paintings of Femke Hiemstra, whose characters also appear to be tiny figurines. In fact, either artist’s beasties would make exemplary vinyl toys, and in Felideus’s case this is demonstrated nicely by the artwork he’s created for Buskers Beer. Transliterated by his talented model-maker wife, Jezabel Nekranea,and spritzed up with his own digital zing, his creations segue effortlessly from drawn into sculpted form.

Elsewhere in his portfolio, you’ll find some less densely-detailed but nonetheless elegant illustrations whose girls and goblins combo is like a collision of the brushes of Charles Vess and Alphonse Mucha, whilst also featuring an uncommonly tasteful application of halftones.

Feast your eyes on Felideus’s work over at his official website. You’ll find that he’s touting a deservedly impressive list of accolades, and links to a bunch of mates with similarly sweet work to check out.

Illustrator and Hand-Letterer: Mary Kate McDevitt

Mary Kate McDevitt is one of the most successful hand-letterers and illustrators working today. A graduate of Tyler School of Art, Mary went on to work at a design studio in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. After 2 years, she moved out west to pursue a freelance illustration and design career in Portland, Oregon before ultimately settling in Brooklyn, New York, which is where she presently resides. While she previously imagined that she would work as an illustrator, dabbling in some lettering on the side–but it turned out to be quite the opposite. Her ever-growing client list includes Chronicle Books, CMYK Magazine, Fast Company, and the United States Postal Service.

LittleBookofLettering_Cover-01

WindowToTheSkull_01

She is specifically inspired by vintage type and techniques, including the ones of her own family. As a teenager, she discovered a plethora of handwritten letters that her mother and aunt wrote to her grandmother during college. She used this inspiration for her Your Handwritten Letters project, a daily hand-lettering exercise. Mary would hand-draw a letter of the alphabet and mail the original to a unique participant each day.

Sean Phillips has been working in comics for over 3 decades, creating beautifully rendered art on such titles as The Invisibles, 2000 AD, Judge Dredd, and Hellblazer. He was part of the British Invasion of Comics in the late 80′s/early 90′s along with cohorts Grant Morrison, Peter Milligan, and Neil Gaiman. His ability to create striking cover illustrations, and draw fully formed characters in a classic, cinematic style has led to a long accomplished career as an artist. He is completing his latest collaboration with “partner in crime” writer Ed Brubaker on the supernatural thriller Fatale for Image Comics. August will see the premiere of their next series together, The Fade-Out, a noir tale set in 1940′s Hollywood. This also begins a 5 year deal with Image Comics for both Sean Phillips, and Ed Brubaker to produce comics exclusively for the publisher, which is a rare occurrence in the industry. This obviously shows the extreme confidence that both creator’s work, and craftsmanship inspires to land such a contract.

Sean Phillips has contributed cover and interior art for various Criterion Collection DVDs, including On the Waterfront, and 12 Angry Men.

He’s also been nominated for 3 Eisner Awards, and has won once with Ed Brubaker for best new series Criminal.

You can keep up with all of the latest Sean Phillips news, and art on his website.
