Illustration Love: Kenny Park

My discovery of the day is illustrator Kenny Park, who is signed with Shannon Associates who generally have pretty great taste in artists. There’s something so immediately compelling about his work, a touch of broody surrealism and a style of world-building that is simple but just strange enough to draw you in. His latest series is based on Hermes. kennyparkillustration

Illustration Love: Book Joy and Diners

Mina Price, who goes by Paperpie on Tumblr, creates gorgeous, moody, dreamy illustrations, and has contributed illustrations for such high-profile works as the Eleanor and Park special edition (from which I will post soon). In the meantime though, enjoy the two below one-offs. The first was conceived as a kind of pro e-reader celebration.

Creativist Interview: Irena Freitas

irena
Most of you know I am passionate about Veronica Mars. So when a talented illustrator launched the Veronica Mars Project, illustrating a Veronica Mars character once a week leading up to the film release, I knew I had to do a Creativist Interview with her. Irena Freitas is an illustrator in Brazil.

Creativist Interview

Can you tell me a little bit about your background?
I’m from Brazil (to be more specific: Manaus, Amazonas) and double majored in Design and Journalism recently. At the moment I work as a concept artist at games studio called Petit Fabrik.
What is your favorite thing to draw and/or where do you get your inspiration from?
I love drawing characters! Originals or based on my favorites books/ tv shows. And I think it’s safe to say that pop culture is my main source of inspiration.
