I’ve been a long time fan of the super talented design, illustration, and printmaking team known as Strawberry Luna. My art crush on this husband-wife studio might have a little to do with the fact that some of my favorite rock bands are among their impressive client list. And because they hand pull their beautiful silkscreens the super old-fashioned way. Or, because they hail from my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. But, mostly I just am in love with their distinctive and smart graphic style! Best known for their silkscreen prints and posters, they also work on custom illustration and design projects including CD & vinyl packaging,web-ready icons, t-shirt designs, and logos & identity packages.
Their impressive client list includes Belle and Sebastion, Camera Obscura, Andrew Bird, Feist, Bright Eyes, Death Cab for Cutie and many, many more.
It was hard to choose just a few favorite pieces to share, so be sure to stop by their website and Etsy shop to see more!
DKNG are probably one of my favorite studios out there. They make incredible work, and design geeks like me will spend hours browsing their breakdown videos. Their work is done through a combination of Illustrator, Photoshop and hand drawn techniques. Sometimes they silkscreen. Often they sell limited edition runs of their posters, but you gotta grab ’em quick because they sell out fast.

I’ve fallen so hard for Tatsuro Kiuchi’s illustration work that it was so hard to pick just a few pieces to share with you! You simply must visit his portfolio website right now and take a gander at the rest of his work. His use of texture and negative space just fills his works with depth and light.
Tatsuro Kiuchi was born in Tokyo, Japan. After studying biology at the International Christian University in Tokyo, he made the switch to an art career after graduating with distinction from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Tatsuro began illustrating children’s books with several publishers in the US and Japan, eventually branching out into editorial work for magazines, book jacket illustrations and advertising commissions.
I can’t find much information on French illustrator Laëtitia Devernay, but her work is lovely! Love her textures and bold color choices.

Mikey Burton is an illustrator/designer living in Ohio. He proudly describes his design aesthetic as “Midwesterny” and draws much of his inspiration from artifacts found throughout the hardworking, blue collar Rust Belt: old type-specimen sheets, arcane equipment manuals and ancient textbooks.
You can read a great interview with him here.
Chris Turnham’s silkscreens are beautiful, simple and geometric. His subdued palette reminds me a bit of fall. Faded. He is a freelance illustrator currently residing in Los Angeles.
Sue jean ko’s style is quite cute, child-like, naive and colorful. She loves doodling and drawing girls and animals in particular. While exploring many different kinds of medium such as collage, etching, and silkscreen at school, she realized that she really loves to print things using colorful ink.
