Illustrative genius’s


I apart from the heading I am an enthusiastic illustrator, yet not a genius, I like to say ‘A drawer  of sorts.’ Illustration for me was not a given but yet a chance to self express in a variety of different ways, pencil or pen either way. Leading me on a path of many different creative areas. Illustration among most things today are very essential, weather it be producing thumbnails or a amazingly broad and out there typeface. Apart from that it has been used for portraiture, Architecture. Many many uses in the modern culture of design and arts in general are astounding in detail. And diverse in ideas.

So, I have gone on a little web surf to find a little insperation , as well as style and doors open in the world off illustration. My first stop was very intriguing and interesting to say the least ,

Timba smith, Timba Smits is an award winning Melbourne born / London based graphic designer, artist, illustrator, independent publisher, self confessed magazine addict and wannabe Olympic ping-pong playa. He is also the worlds tallest ninja (in his dreams) and has a proper love of all things retro and kitsch.

Most commonly though, Timba is known for founding one of the world’s art communities best kept secrets… Wooden Toy Quarterly: the only quarterly boogazine (half book half magazine) to come out once per year, and proud of it! Wooden Toy is not only a publication worth collecting for its design alone, but for its aim to document and highlight emerging and established creatives that have in some way been influenced by contemporary culture, design and art while drawing in the creatives that Timba thinks can be, and are, an influence or inspiration to others.

I myself have had the opportunity to look through  wooden toy.I highly regard  getting yourself a look into one. If you are lucky enough to get yourself around one. Check out woodentoy .

Just around the corner , same fish different pond , Birdy and Me , an illustration company with lovely light colourful and precise detailed drawing. With focus on fashion design. Using realistic illustration to bring the model or sometimes the celebrity to life.  Birdy and Me .

I hope you are enjoying these web-sites and illustration. The two I have shown you are are definitely of there own niche . Something abut illustration . Different hands create different work. This is what I find special about the craft in itself. Apart from the world it can lead into. I am assure we are only at the beginning. To where do we wonder next.

The Illustrator room. Know here is a direct influence of illustrator having an effect on design. As well as a great organisation and communucative for the people. Let alone the artist.

The Illustration Room has been created to provide art directors and designers with easy access to original illustrations for advertising, marketing, PR and editorial uses.

Our service has been established by art director Katie Perrott, who identified a need for quick and easy access to high-quality, creative illustrations during her 14-year career as a magazine art director in major Australian magazine publishing houses such as ACP, Pacific Magazines, Fairfax and Text Media, as well as INK Publishing in London, and Summit Media in The Philippines. Having worked on titles such as ELLE, Australian Good Taste, Australian Gourmet Traveller, Men’s Health, marie claire, BBC Top Gear and The Sun Herald, Katie understands that art directors need a simple method of commissioning or licensing quality images in confidence. She also has established procedures to ensure all images are delivered on time and within budget, providing a reliable service every time. This fuss-free approach means that art directors can focus on their work, not on deadlines, bills or accounts, which is why most of our clients return to The Illustration Room again and again.    Check out in the artist profile , Igor morski, Very different.
