Creative Futures: Jonathan Edwards

15Mar10

The next lecture I attended was given by freelance illustrator extraordinaire, Jonathan Edwards. Check out his website here: http://jonathan-e.com

Jonathan talked us through a slideshow of his work and career, which was a really interesting insight into the life of a freelance illustrator-  just seeing the breadth of companies he has created images for was a real eye opener. I really liked Jonathan’s style- I’m always inspired by people whose work is so stylised that you can immediately recognise it as theirs when you see it.

One of the things I found most interesting about Jonathan’s work though is that even though it looks to be fully digital, he actually still inks the lines by hand, before scanning them into a computer. Quite how he gets them looking so flawless is beyond me, but the fact that he does is certainly inspiring!

I was so engaged in this lecture that I didn’t actually take any notes (oops) so I guess I’ll just let the images speak for themselves!
