Illustrator: Lesley Buckingham

I came across the lovely work of Lesley Buckingham through the Central Illustration Agency and was immediately drawn to her loose watercolour illustrations of various natural forms. These delicate pieces appear effortless to the untrained eye although it is clear the amount of effort and talent needed to create these unique illustrations. After seeing Buckingham’s work I was intrigued to know more about her individual practice and so contacted the artist directly. Here is her response when asked about her inspirations and techniques she uses to create her work:

‘I trained in textiles , specialising in embroidery ( which I still do , look up Betty Bib, I make fairies and embroidered pictures ! ) Because my work at college was very illustrative I found myself on leaving , working as a freelancer in both fields – not always easy to produce and market two different types of work – sometimes I have managed to bring the two together as when I wrote and illustrated my Betty Bib fairy books and included both painted and 3-D textile figures in them. More recently I have been showing my much bolder and simpler style of painting through the CIA website … This began with work that I made on holiday and in sketch books ‘playing around ‘, but that I realised had a wider and more commercial appeal than the fairy images and I am currently enjoying working in this style for magazines and some advertising projects. I love the variety of it all !’

More of Buckingham’s work can be found on the Central Illustration Agency website.

 

Thanks for reading,

Carla

I’m so impressed with artist Dan Mora’s work on Michael Alan Nelson’s Hexed, that I had to share a sampling of it here with all of you! The little bit that I can find out about Dan Mora on the web is that he lives in Costa Rica, he’s done graphic design work & many illustrations for numerous print/online publications, and loads of concept art/character design work, as well. In it’s previous incarnation, Hexed introduced the great artist Emma Rios to the world, and now it’s Dan Mora’s turn to find legions of new fans.

Hexed, published by Boom Studios, is up to issue 9 now; it will be interesting to see if Mora sticks with that series a while longer or if one of the “Big 2″ scoops him up. Either way, I’ll be following for the good arts!

You can find more of Mora’s artwork, and see many revealing artist process posts, on his “Behance” site here.
