Beth Knight grew up in Wales and has a degree in Graphic Design from the Norwich University College of the Arts. As a child she used to sketch the creatures she found when she went out hiking, and from there her passion only grew. There’s something really calming about her work; it reminds me of Beatrix Potter!

Originally from “a little town near Hannover in Germany” Anke Weckmann has been living and working as an illustrator in London for many years now. She developed a lovely, distinct yet versatile style that works in Editorial, Fashion, as Music Artwork and in Product Design (Anke illustrated the packaging of a whole product range of cosmetics and accessoires for te brand “Too Cool For School”). And besides being updated on current commissioned works you can find the very charming and funny “Learning French” comics on her blog.

I especially love the delicate balance of detail and composition, ornamental elements and coloring. There’s so much to discover and yet her works never seem overloaded.

Also fellow or future illustrators might want to do themselves a favor and check out Anke’s blogpost  on working out and staying healthy while you spend most of your career sitting at a desk.

Sketchbook :: Nicholas Stevenson

Nicholas_Stevenson_Fairy_Tale Higher Res Play Chase 700 portrait and mirror 700

 

To me, sketchbooks are the most interesting part of an artist’s body of work. They show thoughts and observations before they become hidden in a more complex piece.  I love the finished quality to Nicholas Stevenson’s sketchbooks so much, I just had to share!  I have such a weakness for saturated color palettes and hectic compositions. Nicholas Stevenson is an illustrator based out of London who works mostly in Gouache. When he’s not painting, he plays a lot of music. I highly recommend checking out his portfolio, and all of his other internet hangouts: Portfolio Twitter | Tumblr | Behance | Music

Artist :: Rich Gemmell

Rich Gemmell Mountain

Rich Gemmell Whales

Rich Gemmell combines pencil and ink washes with digital elements to create a deep, rich texture for each of his illustrations. Rich keeps sketchbooks during travels through other countries, such as Scotland, France, and the United States, and his illustrations are developed from these entries with tracing paper. After pencil lines are thickened and ink washes are added, Rich scans his work into the computer to add some final touches.

My absolute favorite of his works is Falls, which he designed from one of his sketches observing kayakers descending some falls at the foot of the Ben Nevis mountain in the British Isles. This particular piece (below) is available on The Working Proof, where 15% of the sales from his illustration goes to profit Transportation Alternatives.

Rich Gemmell Falls

Located in Cambridge, UK, Rich has worked as a freelance illustrator for a variety of sources including The Guardian, Future Snowboarders Magazine, and Sunday Times Magazine. View more of his absorbing artwork on his website, richgemmell.net.

Artist :: Yan Nascimbene

Artist :: Yan Nascimbene >> Illustration Friday

I am in awe of Yan Nascimbene’s breathtaking watercolors. Such a sense of stillness, light, and life.

Yan Nascimbene was raised in France and Italy. After working as a photographer in a Paris fashion studio, he studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York and at the University of California at Davis. He later spent many years living variously in California, France, and Italy. His illustrated edition of Marcel Proust’s Swann’s Way. Antibes, Clarievere et Autres Couleurs, his first book as author and illustrator, won the Graphic Award at the Bologna Book Fair in 1992. Yan illustrated Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, PalomarThe Baron in the Trees and others. Nascimbene has illustrated over 50 books and 300 book covers. He passed away in Mexico on Feb 1st 2013.

Here is what he had to say about working with clients:

Rather than feeling limited by a client’s idea, I find that the challenge of expressing precisely his/her idea in my own aesthetical terms forces me to think harder, to search deeper and ultimately to create a much stronger and interesting image than if I had been given total freedom of style, format and subject-matter. I try to illustrate a literary piece between the lines, and I feel that an illustration must reflect at once the client’s idea and my identity.  First and foremost comes the need of the client, then my understanding of such a need and the elaboration of a concept.  This is the most taxing and important phase of the work, often the one that will require most time.  A thorough sketch (or sketches) will allow me to explain the concept to the client and structure the image (composition, balance, etc.) until his/her unequivocal satisfaction.  The final painting, although still an emotional and creative task, will rely at least as much on technique and my ability to translate our early discourse and sketches into a factual image, as it does on pure imagination.  In my case, it is usually a quicker stage, as all but a few challenges have already been resolved.
