B is coming

Beginning B between beautiful, bold, bewildered, brilliant, belligerent, bigger artists. And it seems they all have an urban element in common.

A is for Airy

Angie Wang's illustrations are dramatic or more exactly operatic,no wonder why she defines herself as an illustratess. Here illustrations are a reminder of the theatrical scenes of Ukiyo-e, that means "pictures of the floating world". Angie brings back the evanescence and the fleeting beauty that this genre has, her images are airy and full of movement creating a floating world of her own. Among her clients we count The New Yorker and the New York Times. You can see her website here and her flickr here.

A is for Audacious

Andrew Rae
is always audacious, a little irreverent and has a fantastic pointy humor, that has given him his unique style. The first time I saw his illustration was in The Guardian and he caught my attention immediately, because being from Colombia I wasn't used to see illustrations in the newspapers and never thought I will see something so modern in it. Andrew Rae's illustration open my eyes to where you can get by following your personal style. Go listen with your eyes and visit his blog and his portfolio here.

A is for Auckland

Andrew Archer says in his fun profile "I’m greatly inspired by surrealism, juxtapositions and sublime narratives but more specifically wood block prints, edo period art, cartoons, ideograms, characterization, travel and Asia." Definitely dynamic and modern illustration from the far away land of New Zealand.

A is for Amical

Amy Sol is a Korean illustrator that lives and work in the U.S. She joins her influences on a fantastic way, putting together "manga, folk-art, vintage illustration and modern design" in intricate compositions of animals, nature and amical, peaceful characters. Website here!
