5 illustrators

As a result of being side lined by other things I've neglected to post links to illustrators that have either contacted me or I've found. This is to redress the situation...

Alex Mathers contacted me recently after I found him on twitter. Thankfully I'd already earmarked him for inclusion in the blog. Ape on the Moon is another illustration blog, much like this one, looking for fresh talent to post about. Alex is also rather talented too, which helps!

Scott Nellis is a Brighton based graduate that also emailed me. I was struck by his powerful pen and ink image work. The illustrations are wonderfully twisted and Scott should be inundated with commissions in my opinion.

Assim Hetun also has an eye for the bizarre and capturing it in black and white. Luckily he doesn't limit himself to monotones. However his Escher inspired repeating pattern obviously caught my attention. Its good to see that he also featured in Computer Arts 2007 graduate showcase.

Jonathan Edwards is a hardworking illustrator that has been plying his trade since 1993. Published in Deadline (my favourite read of the era) he went on to appear regularly in The Guardian. Now he's set up a collaborative blog dedicated to illustration and, another love of mine, Serge Gainsbourg - Draw Serge!. Bliss. I might have to have a stab at a Serge myself - watch this space!

Niki Lopez is next on the list if only for this great image of Sting and The Police. Hailing from Puerto Rico, Niki has a great portfolio and also runs her own blog. She draws very interesting noses, and should probably tackle Serge too. She has a variety of styles but this one (left) reminds me of Aaron Minier's work (another favourite of mine).

Well that wraps up my list, I hope you enjoyed it. Let me know if you think I should mention anybody else in future posts. This post brought to you by the power of ManFlu!
