In the 18th Century, Japanese artist Toriyama Sekien attempted to depict each spirit of the ‘yokai’ tradition; an ancient race of demons whose descendants would later terrorise the earth under the guises of Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan. Now, two Bristolian men aim to rediscover the near-forgotten Yokai, and return these ancient beasts to their former glory, in the form of the Bento Bestiary . Fourteen spirits and demons are lovingly rendered by Ben Newman in the bold and colourful illustration style we have come to expect from him. Newman draws heavily on early and mid-20th century design in his work, incorporating worldwide themes from European deco to Japanese film posters and 50′s American cartoons, never losing his strong sense of a most English deadpan humour. Each image is complimented with words from S J Donaldson.
ça y est j'suis en vraies vacances! j'peux me coucher à l'heure que j'veux, me lever quand j'veux le matin, jouer au foot avec les copains, glander sur le net... et plus personne pour me dire c'que j'dois dessiner

This collection of illustrations was chosen not as a demonstration of superior artistic talent or refined technique, as I venture that many, if not a majority, of all designers are skilled illustrators of one sort or another. I include these projects in order to present a more complete understanding of what inspires me as a designer and an artist. As with most aspects of design I have made the greatest progress in my illustration style in the past few years.
Steve Mack has been drawing for as long as he can remember. His first lessons in art were taught to him by watching his grandfather do paint-by-numbers at the summer cottage. Later, he took every drawing class he could find at the local community center and spent every hour of math class sharpening his drawing skills. After graduating from college as a Visual Communications know-it-all, he instead turned from graphic design back to his roots as an illustrator. Steve started freelancing in the year 2000 and has had a steady climb upwards since that time. Steve has worked with major clients such as Hallmark, Target, Walgreens, Sterling Publishing, Scholastic, Barnes & Noble, Harcourt, Chronicle Books, and recently spent a year in Ohio working directly with American Greetings illustrating greeting cards.
I’m starting off the year with a new blog design and online shop! Now my screenprints are for sale in my store on bigcartel . In addition to the prints that have been available, I’ve added a couple that were previously labeled as sold out, specifically the India and Passepartout prints. There are only a few left of those so grab them now before they’re really gone! Also I added a newsletter function that will keep subscribers up-to-date on new blog posts and store items.
New cover illustration out this week. This time it was with first time collaborator Miami New Times. Always a pleasure to work with new people, especially when they are nice. you can read the very interesting story HERE at MNT, and also see the cover featured HERE at Nas Capas the Magazine cover lover who loved my magazine cover without taking it out on a date first. I got this book in the mail yesterday. I forgot why it was sent to me but as I was flipping through it I quickly remembered agreeing to be featured in this illustration book a while ago.
The Artalog and theartalog.com represent a joint creative effort launched by Magnet Reps and Frank Sturges Reps. Designed to showcase the work of the illustrators in both agencies, The Artalog has evolved in a short time into what we hope is an innovative visual resource for those who seek out (or just admire) the top talent in today’s illustration marketplace. The 2008 launch edition of the print magazine was mailed to art directors, designers, art buyers and press in the fall of 2007 with spreads showcasing illustrators’ work and articles discussing trends, news and awards.
The realist J’ai le grand honneur de figurer dans une des pages du Realist d’Asaf Hanuka. Je suis son travail depuis des années et il ne cesse de me surprendre. A son habitude, il propose une version en anglais et en hébreu. Je suis donc, tour à tour, gaucher et droitier.

As I recuperate from several all-night work sessions because of three maddening deadlines, all within a week of each other, and before I start calling costume rental places asking if they have any chicken suits available, thought I'd share with you all some wonderful illustrations from this neato book on the futurist author Jules Verne . Considering that it's Mr. Verne's birthday today, consider this a little celebration for a man who stirred many an imagination with his wild and hairy stories, well over one-and-a-half centuries ago.

One of the joys of having a collection is showing stuff to people and today I have some really beautiful images to share. Perhaps you have heard about Isidro Ferrer before.
