Taking inspiration from the past
My recent artwork combines traditional ink illustration and print techniques with vector illustration.
I’m Exploring the synergy between the skills of the past with those of today – Screen pixels dominate our world, illustration created on a small scale relies on shape and essential detail – not dissimilar to the restrictions imposed by the old print processes in the early part of the century.
I have collected advertising, print work and packaging created by the illustators, typographers and commercial artists from the early 20th century for over 30 years. On this section of my website I’d like to share my collection and how it has influenced my work and the developing style of subtractionism.
