Grace Helmer uses strong brush strokes to create her rich, ethereal oil illustrations. The expressive color progressions in her paintings give the work a delicate, transient presence; the viewer can’t help but be caught up in the joy and beauty of Helmer’s brief captured moments. Her style is used to especially great effect in her animated pieces. Constantly changing textures and shapes create a depth and dynamism that one might feel could easily be drunk from the canvas. Helmer graduated from the Camberwell College of Art in 2012 and is part of the illustration studio collective Day Job.

Yann Kebbi

French illustrator Yann Kebbi is a mixed media artist with a quick, expressive style. His colorful illustrations are busy and full of life. Loose lines and smudges suggest his characters’ dynamic movement as they experience the extremes of human emotion (frustration, panic, joy, mania, apathy) from within his urban landscapes. Kebbi executes extreme care in adding only the necessary to his drawings, adding emphasis in some areas while allowing the viewer’s imagination to fill in others. Yann Kebbi’s editorial illustrations can be found in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and many other credible news publications in North America and Europe. He is represented by Heart Agency in New York and London.

See more of Kebbi’s work in Heart Agency’s portfolio or on Kebbi’s blog.

His thought-provoking illustrations illuminate social issues and set the proper tone for their accompanying articles.
