Illustration Collective: December

It's that time of the month where I share some of my favourite illustrators whose work I've been liking over the past month. I have a real admiration for these people and their ability to create witty and creative narratives. 

First is the work of Falmouth Graduate Lucie Ebrey. I came across her work through friends and follow her on Instagram. I love her sense of humour and how this is conveyed through her work. The witty use of characters and humour always makes me laugh, follow her account for a much needed laugh. Her distinct style and way of working makes her work stand out. This is also shown through the use of colour which makes the narrative and characters playful. 

The ability to tell narrative through short snippets in the way she does is very effective and beautifully done. 'Tipsy' is one of my favourites because of combination of rhyming and colour combinations.

Next is the work of first year Illustration student Laura Walters. I love how she uses media to create delicate pieces.

She works in both traditional media and digital. I really like a lot of her digital work because of how she uses mark making when describing form. Similar to Lucie she has a real talent with colour and making this a real strong focal point within her work. She has a definite eye for quality of line when she makes her work, whether this be creating more mystical pieces or portraits it is an important factor to consider.

Artist Talks: Phoebe Atkey

Phoebe Atkey is a talented artist whose work I first saw on Instagram. Her commitment and enthusiasm for the arts is very inspiring. Her detailed drawings and attention to detail is what makes her stand out. Phoebe currently has over 25,000 followers in Instagram where she often uploads work. I interviewed Phoebe to gain more of an insight to her interests and how she creates such beautiful works using a variety of media.

How often do you draw? 
I try to draw everyday, even if it is just 15 minutes. What artists influence you?  I have always been interested in children’s book illustrations especially those of Quentin Blake and Ernest Shepherd. These two artists inspired me to draw from a very young age. As I have got older, I have also become interested in the works of Saul Bass, Herbert Leupin and Paul Rand.
Do you see yourself going to Art School?  I would like to try getting into the industry without going to uni. However, I am lucky to live near an extremely good arts university, s…

Being content and tolerating uncertainty

It's been well over a year since my last blog post. I've been writing still just not in a consistent space. I've got a few pieces over at On the Beat Mag and on the Pressing Matters Journal. It's funny how I'm starting off by trying to show how I have been keeping busy, as a way of defining my offline presence on this space. This is something I have always been very good at maintaining, an image of being busy and content in what I am doing. I think with this keeping busy, comes a sense of running from oneself in order to keep my head above the water. In recent weeks I have been writing a lot more than I have been making art. I have had projects on the go, but not pushing myself fully into them which I find frustrating because I'm not being fully present in the moment of what I am doing. In this I perhaps lose the essence of why I am doing it.

When you are in a state of transition there are a few ways you can process? deal? tackle? it. I am someone who has alway…
