Colin Talcroft is an artist, photographer, winemaker, beekeeper, avid bird-watcher, and blogger (when he’s not busy translating Japanese financial research into English, his main paying job). He’s also into music, reading, travel, fine food, and serendipitous art… I know him through Facebook, where our interests cross paths on occasion.
Since last summer, Colin’s been playing with acrylic paints, mono-printing and collage. Shown above are a few of his experimental pieces… see more here.
Austrian-born Horst Haitzinger is one of Germany’s most prolific political caricature artists, well-known for his robust brushstroke-style as well as his sarcastic irony. The watercolour illustrations shown above are from his 1989 book Globetrottel.
Four years ago today, our friend and colleague Shigeo Fukuda, the great graphic sensei, passed on into the next dimension. Japan’s consummate visual communicator, Fukuda-san is known around the world as a playful prankster, a modern-day Escher, and an imaginative creator who “dramatically shattered cultural and linguistic barriers with his universally recognizable style.”
Perhaps Alan Fletcher described him the best (in Masters of the 20th Century): “Shigeo Fukuda is a star in the design firmament—on second thought, maybe he’s more of a comet.” Fukuda-san—there’s no doubt that you’ll continue to light up our heaven…
Shown above a few samples of Fukuda-san’s engaging posters.
I’m unsure how Emily‘s illustrative work came to my attention… but I like it.
