Here we go again! First one for 2014 and I will start with one of my most favourite illustrators. I have been following her for years and her work never ceases to amaze me (and not just because she draws lots and LOTS of cats).
One of the most amazing things about Butler’s work is her skill in portraying emotions. For each of her characters she brings a certain distinctiveness that individualises them from each other, making them believable and likeable. She has an amazing eye for detail, her well known comic series Lackadaisy being one of the most well detailed and cleverly written web comics I have read to date. Her work is charming and witty and it’s a wonder why she isn’t in the world of animation.
I am always in awe of her ability to portray a vast range of expressions and emotions on a variety of characters while still maintaining each individual trait.
Simply an amazing artist whom I would love to learn from!
Also, visit her Lackadaisy blog on Tumblr!
Another bout of inspiration!
One of the many artists that I follow and am always constantly inspired by is Anthony Holden.
He is a great cartoonist and his style is just this fantastic mix of, what seems to me, like old school Japanese cartoons with a Western stylized twist. It is just so quirky and fun and I always find myself eager to see what he posts up next. And not to mention he has a wicked sense of humor, especially when it comes to his witty animations about his life, which is charmingly entertaining.
He is definitely worth a check out and a follow. Just great art all around, and I guarantee you that you’ll smile every time you see his work!:)
Here are his blogs, and he also has a Tumblr, fancy that!
And I will leave you with more artwork, just cuz I can’t choose just one:P
