Illustrations & Icons: Calligraphic Styles
I work with brush, pen, ink and paint to create organic and unique styles of illustration. My calligraphic illustrations are used as spots and covers for book illustration, for brochures and retail promotion and for identity design. The calligraphic line work reproduces well in many media. Although I create my work with analog methods when needed I convert to vector art for enlargement or vector platforms.
Style is a continuum. When I include more detail and clear signs of representation I call the work “illustration.” When I move towards abstraction and simplification I call it “icon.” The boundaries between the two can be flexible. The collections here show a range of completed projects as well as process to give you an idea of how I work.
