Natsko Seki: dynamic urban illustrations

Post by Heather Ryerson

Telephone booths

Bookshop

Westminster

Italy

Eating & Drinking

Natsko Seki collages lively, saturated scenes of urban life from her own drawings and photographs. Begging to be explored, each illustration is populated with human activity and contains clues left by a moment in time that—if only yesterday—is now lost. Iconic architecture stands as a grandiose reminder that Seki’s people are living in the shadows of history and are unknowing participants in the writing of their city’s centuries. Seki’s interest in architecture, fashion, and contemporary urban life has landed her commissions with Transport for London, Royal Historic Palaces, The Guardian, Bloomsbury, and Hermès. In 2013, Louis Vuitton published a book of Seki’s London illustrations as part of their travel books collection. Seki grew up in Tokyo and studied illustration in Brighton, UK. She now lives in London.

Sammy Slabbnick uses playful vintage clippings to create quirky, appealing landscapes with a surreal quality. His images echo predecessors like Terry Gilliam very strongly. Speaking of animation, he makes short stop motions on Vine as well, be sure to give them a look!

Ben Butcher used to be the creative director at Pixar’s consumer products department. Now he’s doing his own thing. He makes the beautiful collages out of mixed papers, sometimes for other people, sometimes not. I think they’re stunning.  Check out more of his work here: blogspot

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.
