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.

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.

Artist: Aleksandra Waliszewska

tumblr_mhrf7eHkex1qcac69o1_r1_1280   tumblr_msf2r1Xv171qz6f9yo10_1280

Before we begin, let’s get this out of the way: Aleksandra Waliszewska’s art is not for everyone. However, if you’re partial to a dose of the genuinely disturbing then it’s more than worth a look. Her paintings radiate the most menacing kind of Gothic gloom, and are full of religious and occult symbolism, mythological creatures, and fluffy white cats with evil glints in their eyes. If this sounds appealing, then read on, brave soul…

Waliszewska’s style is deceptively simple, and consists of either dark, dense oils or eloquent monochrome linework. In atmosphere if not strictly in appearance, her works recall the likes of Goya, Breugel, and Bosch. However, this prolific Polish artist’s paintings give the unsettling impression that her brush strokes are not merely applying strokes of dismal colour, but instead are forming a thinly-stretched membrane between her world and ours. Now there’s a Gothic concept if ever there was one. And be thankful that the bubble holds, as it’s all that stands between us and a desolate, horror-haunted place.

In the world that Waliszewska reveals, claustrophobic subterranean spaces and forests thick with darkness teem with pale flesh being disembowelled, sacrificed, mauled by animals or otherwise mutilated in an aesthetically pleasing fashion. However, amidst all of this bleeding body horror there’s also some light relief, in the form of Edward Gorey-esque absurdity, such as a wombat out for a stroll. Phew. But, as with all the best horror, it is suggestion that is most effective in Waliszewska’s work: the stolen glimpses we are offered into some truly bizarre and enigmatic scenes. And after all, as HP Lovecraft (the master of literary horror) said, “The basis of all true cosmic horror is violation of the order of nature, and the profoundest violations are always the least concrete and describable.”

Peer from between the gaps in your shaking fingers at more of Aleksandra’s work over at her blog or her Facebook page. A collection of her work has recently released in a double-volume art book, Problem & Solution.

Illustration Graduate: Melissa Rose

After visiting the Illustration Graduate Degree Show 2014 at the University of Huddersfield, England, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of work I saw. One illustrator, Melissa Rose caught my attention with her detailed mixed media illustrations depicting themes of nature (and cake!). The fluidity of her drawing techniques are absolutely stunning, produced through various processes such as using sticks dipped in ink and using watercolour to add a splash of brilliant colour.

Having managed to speak to the illustrator at the event, Rose told me about her inspirations drawn from endemic species studied by Charles Darwin on the Galápagos Islands. This influenced her creation and use of sea turtles native to the island for her commercial design for ‘The Body Shop’ (see above). Nature is a common theme in a lot of her work which I find truly inspiring and unique.

Rose has just finished her final year of University after studying in illustration in Huddersfield. A bright future is definitely on the cards for this young illustrator and I can’t wait to see what she produces next!

See more of Rose’s work on her Facebook Page and Website.

Thanks for reading.

Illustrator Alexander Fedosov (AKA Hollllow)

Priya - Fedosov

 

Harlequin Fedosov

 

deviantART can be an odd little slice of cyberspace at times, but amongst the slew of big-eyed, short-skirted manga fanart, identikit dragons and anthropomorphic foxish-looking things with unlikely abdominal musculature, there are some truly interesting things to be found. One such thing is the work of Ukrainian illustrator Alexander Fedosov, AKA Hollllow. It’s unsettling, futuristic, and hard to get tired of looking at. Also, it’s difficult to look at with a closed mouth, due to involuntary jaw-dropping. There’s not a massive portfolio to see, and Fedosov’s art concentrates more on characters than environments – but these he has absolutely nailed. His character designs seem consist of bizarre hybrids of cyborg and sculpture which fuse the organic, the mechanical and the abstract – leaving the viewer fascinated yet slightly queasy. Yes, this is picking up where the late, great Giger left off, but Fedosov’s work has its own unique character. It’s infused with strange beauty, perfectly executed in every intricate detail, and his rendering of stony curlicues and scarred and flaking metal is literally second to none. None, I say!
