Maja Sten is a graphic designer and illustrator from Sweden. She produces lovely digital work, but still with a hand crafted touch. It keeps the illustrations form getting too cold and impersonal, which they can tend to do when made on a computer. Something I hope I managed to adapt into my own practice.

This piece is from a fanzine she made based upon the text of the film ‘Working Girl’. Both the illustrations and the incorporated text helped me in the Digital Imaging unit, and will also help me in the next one: Word and Image.

Charley Harper (1992 – 2007)
Cincinnati, Ohio

My favourite illustrator all time, Charley Harper, made beautiful illustrations of animals, plants and farm life. What fascinate me about his work, is how everything consists of simple geometric shapes, but still manage to illustrate the object extremely well. The details he added does often have a more organic shape but is still kept very minimalistic, something I tried to transmit into my own work of the digital imaging unit.

Darling Clementine is a norwegian design and illustrator duo based in Oslo.

One of my favourites from Darling Clementine is the Paris! series. After last unit (drawing approaches/ Drag Queens), I feel like making something more graphic and simple.
Paris! is minimalistic and a bit retro, and the use of colour is very limited. I think it is fascinating how so simple shapes and colours can be so effective.
