Every now and then I stumble upon a new artist that has me instantly transfixed. Sophie Lécuyer is definitely one of those artists – I have a feeling I will be returning to her work again and again.

Genevieve Godbout

Peru-01

Colored pencils illustrations by Genevieve Godbout. The following illustrations are all from the same children’s book about an ogress. (Unfortunately I’m having trouble finding the book’s name…) In any case, the illustrations are my favorite from her blog. There’s a nice contrast between the ugliness of the ogress and the softness of the colored pencil.

One of the best. I could look through T.S. Sullivant’s work for ages (those animals! that crosshatching!)

Kelsey Oseid

Kelsey Oseid has finished all 50 of her State Bird prints (a project in which she illustrated each state with the feather pattern found on their official state bird.) All 50 prints are available at her Etsy shop.

Oscar Grillo

I just got back from the CTN expo in Burbank where I had the good fortune of having dinner with Oscar Grillo, illustrator and former-animator. If you ever have the chance, I strongly recommend attending one of his lectures. He is full of stories, artwork, and inspiration. On top of that, he is absolutely hilarious – he had our crowd in hysterics.

The images above have come from both his personal blog and his commercial blog. In the coming days I will also be posting some of the great artists he introduced me to.
