I decided to take a visit to the World Illustration Awards last Friday to check out the finalists. There was a huge variety of illustrations from pencil drawing to painting on Indian inks. There was also a whole variety of style of illustration also, some simple and quirky, some with weeks of detail in.
All of the illustrations I thought was really cool, I loved Olivier Kugler’s work on the refugees, mainly because you can see how the artist originally sketched the design simply, and you can see how she had dispersed the drawing into what it had become, something quite striking.
Going to this exhibition was quite inspiring for me, being someone who loves illustration and viewing the different designs, whether they be detailed or simple. I will take note of this exhibition for any future projects coming up that I could use this for to help with some ideas.
