Kimika Hara is a fascinating artist living in Kyoto, Japan. I absolutely adore her hand-embroidered illustrations– the colors are amazing, the textures created by printed fabrics, stitches, and beads are simply lovely. What a wonderful technique! Unfortunately, I don’t speak Japanese, so I couldn’t find out much about her.

David Mack is the creator, author and artist of Kabuki, a comic book series that has earned international acclaim for its innovative storytelling, painting techniques and page design. He is also the writer and cover artist for Marvel Comics’ Daredevil.

He graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design, which included studies in Sculpture, Painting, Drawing, Art History, Photography, Typography and Bookmaking, and a minor in English. The first published Kabuki collection, Kabuki: Circle of Blood, was completed while David was in college, and the story served as his senior writing thesis. He has now completed seven collections.

I found Kabuki several years ago, when I wandered into a comic book shop looking for art-driven stories. David’s writing is just as brilliant as his illustrative abilities. He uses watercolor and mixed media collage in his unconventional page layouts and creates stunning imagery and powerful storylines.

Gustavo Aimar << Illustration Friday

Gustavo Aimar is an Argentinean graphic designer, illustrator, and fine artist. He draws from all of these disciplines to create mixed media collages with a variety of materials and textures. He collects vintage and used papers, and allows the materials tell him what to do.

Lately, his work is focused on children’s illustrations. He has worked on more than a dozen books, and occasionally collaborates in diverse publications and projects. His work is so rich with ideas and inspiration that every time I see one of his pieces, I feel the urge to immediately stop whatever I’m doing and start working on something of my own. He’s brilliant.

Explore more of his work on Flickr, and his blog (in Spanish).

Artist :: Isidro Ferrer :: No Stranger to the Surreal

Posted by Angie

Isidro Ferrer << Illustration Friday

Isidro Ferrer began his career as a stage actor in Madrid, Spain. After an accident
and long rehabilition, Isidro became an illustrator and graphic designer. He has
designed book covers, posters, wine labels, sculptural found objects, and he has
created tile design for public works. His clients include Canal + , El Pais,
Santillana, Volkswagen, and the Centro Dramático Nacional. He has won many
awards for his work including the National Award for children’s illustration from
Spain’s Ministry of Education and Culture (2006).

Isidro’s work often uses three-dimensional objects re-imagined and combined
with traditional media to take on a new meaning. Textures play a significant role in
his compositions and he is no stranger to surrealism. I love the simplicity and
high drama of his work, and the clever elegance of his ideas.
