illustrator envy

Maybe it's because I want to write and illustrate a children's book someday or maybe i am just turning shades of green from all the talented artists out there, but I can't get enough from researching and discovering designers and illustrators. Add it to the bucket list I suppose.

Some of my recent discoveries include:

Chris Silas Neal

C.S. Neal is an illustrator and designer. His work has been featured in Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Time Magazine, Newsweek, Dwell, Travel and Leisure, Flaunt, Gabriele Wilson, Readymade, Metropolis, Harvard Paper, Village Voice, LA Times, Boston Globe, Rodrigo Corral, TBWA/Chiat/Day, The Stranger, HHMI, National Geographic Adventure, Bloomberg, and Business Week, to name a few!

His illustratons are featured in NPRs Summer Book Series, which offers a great list of reads if you are like me and get overwhelmed in B&N. {visit NPR summer reading list here}

Xiao Xin

These illustrations make me smile. Each one holds so much personality!

{what do you imagine he is thinking?}

{can't you just hear him giggling!?}

Nate Williams

Nate Williams has been a favorite of mine for some time now. I first saw one of his illustrations in the Wall Street Journal. He has been published all around the world. You might recognize his work from Coca Cola, Urban Outfitters, Converse Shoes, Cartoon Network, United Airlines, and Microsoft, to name a few.

As always, thanks for visiting the site.
If there are any illustrators/designers you would like to share,
