Daniel Ursache was born in Romania and grew up on the coast of the Black Sea. He studied art in Timisoara, Romania, before moving to Montreal, Canada to complete his post-graduate studies. A regular participant in Illustration Friday challenges, Daniel also creates fine art and graphic design, and has illustrated for books and magazines.

Daniel’s work is characterized by energetic linework, bold mark-making,  the exploration of various media, occasionally appearing to mix traditional techniques with digital manipulations. His style tends toward surreal imagery and slightly dark, melancholy subject matter.

Children's Illustrator :: Erin Banks << Illustration Friday

Erin Bennett Banks has a passion for rich narratives and culturally distinct visual storytelling. She has illustrated three nationally published children’s books, and has won several awards for her work. She has also created illustrations for clients such as Highlights for Children Magazine, McGraw-Hill, The Weekly Reader and Harvard Business Review, and her paintings have been licensed artwork for JCPenney and Bed, Bath & Beyond.

Erin lives in Charleston, SC with her husband, two cherub babies, and a couple of pugs.

She paints in oils, and I love the vibrant red outlines that electrify her compositions, and the angular planes of her “primitive” style, and the expressiveness of her characters.

As some of you may have noticed I am a fan of line based illustration in particular. Another big plus for me is when illustrators add something fresh to traditional techniques. Michael Wandelmaier from Toronto, Canada checks both those boxes: His penciled and inked lines are paired with a modern touch by color choice, settings and themes. I particularly love the warmth and depth that the coloring and its texture add to his works.

His website seems somewhat new and there is not a lot of info on the blog yet (there is a mention of an “illustration hiatus”), but I highly recommend keeping an eye on his work: Portfolio

Pascal Campion is a French-American illustrator and animator. He has worked in a wide variety of media, illustrating games, music videos, feature films, and books for such clients as Dreamworks Animation, Disney TV, MTV, Nickelodeon, Bent Image Labs, Cartoon Network, Hulu, They Might Be Giants, and PBS. Pascal has been working professionally for about ten years and currently lives in San Francisco with his wife and daughter. He finds inspiration in the everyday people and objects around him and believes that color is as essential to the piece as the composition itself.

He’s got an amazing sense of light and emotion, and his scenes glow with feeling. A lot of his work involves couples in love, young families, crowded and lonely cities, and sometimes cats.

Artist (and Experimenter) :: Anne-Marie Jones << Illustration Friday

I wrote about Anne-Marie Jones’s work last year, but I keep going back to check out her work and I love it more and more. She experiments a lot, it seems, and I like that in particular. I’ve found that playing with mediums and trying techniques teaches me more than anything else – it’s better than any book I’ve read or class I’ve taken so far. So I like that a lot of what Jones posts on her blog are little trials. Her work comes across as playful to me. She’s even got some simple, fun animations on her portfolio site.

Angie Wang works as a cartoonist and illustrator in the editorial field in Los Angeles (previously
Portland). Matching her cheekily described entry to an artistic life – painting a “snot mural” on her child room’s wall – her style remains playful, imaginitive and uninhibited. Clients include The New Yorker, The New York Times, Hi Fructose, Nylon Magazines, Image Comics and Nobrow Magazine.

Artist :: Timothy Banks, Somewhat Edgy << Illustration Friday

TimothyBanks-TrickyTreat

Self-described as a “somewhat edgy illustrator,” Timothy Banks paints and draws for magazines, books, children’s books and character development projects. He has worked with a lot of cool clients like Nike, Cartoon Network, Marvel and Paste Magazine, and hopes to land a children’s book deal sometime this year. Tim started doing all of his commercial work digitally about 3 years ago, and uses Sketchbook Pro. He currently lives in Charleston, S.C. with his family.

My favorite things about Tim’s style include the energetic texture created by his sketchy linework, the excellent use of color and the way he masterfully blends “innocent and sweet” with “creepy and ominous” in a somewhat edgy way. Tim’s got a wicked sense of humor.
